Can someone let me know how they add applications to their basemap that are msi based. Do you use a bat, cmd, or some other means to execute the program and it's silent install? I had to copy one program down to a directory and then use a bat file to execute the program in silent mode.

Thanks

Using a BAT file is the best way. Put the BAT file in the same directory as the MSI and in that bat file string your command in a like fashion: msiexec.exe /i <name of msi file> TRANSFORMS=<name of transform file - if there is one> /qb. This is all pretty standard MSI stuff and I am sure that you already know that. When you build your IUB Applicaiton Module point the module to the source directory of the MSI and BAT file and use the BAT file in your silent install command. Hope this helps and have a great day.

My partner and I found out that we can type msiexec.exe in the command box and then enter the parameters for the silent install. To make this work, you must include the msiexec.exe in your source files.
