Hi,
I am having problems with the installer.properties file. The file is provided as this:

# Installation mode (Silent)
INSTALLER_UI=SILENT
# Installation directory - use "\\" to separate directories.
USER_INSTALL_DIR=C:\\Informatica\\PowerCenter8.1.0
# Installation set (Complete/Custom)
CHOSEN_INSTALL_SET=Complete
# PowerCenter Client components (PowerCenter Client/Metadata Manager Client)
CHOSEN_INSTALL_BUNDLE_LIST=PowerCenter Client, Metadata Manager Client
# Metadata Manager Integration Repository Code Page (MS1252/Latin1)
CODEPAGE=MS1252
# Metadata Manager Integration Repository Name
INTREPONAME=PowerCenter

Only the PowerCenter Client is needed here and of course different install. dir. So I changed the installer.properties to this:

# Installation mode (Silent)
INSTALLER_UI=SILENT
# Installation directory - use "\\" to separate directories.
USER_INSTALL_DIR=C:\\Program Files\\PowerCenter8.1.0
# Installation set (Complete/Custom)
CHOSEN_INSTALL_SET=Custom
# PowerCenter Client components (PowerCenter Client/Metadata Manager Client)
CHOSEN_INSTALL_BUNDLE_LIST=PowerCenter Client

Using this command line in a batch file: where %path% is replaced with an absolute path.
%path%\install.exe -f %path%\installer.properties.

Anyway, the app. gets installed in the specified install. directory, C:\Program Files\PowerCenter8.1.0 and now comes the BUT..................
It still installs Metadat Manager Client. I googled and found information on the installer.properties file but I tried many different things, the only thing it does right is installing it in the directory that I specify in this properties file.

Can anyone tell me what I need to do in this file so it will only install PowerCenter Client?

Thanks.

Most or all of my experience with the installer.properties answer files have been positive. It looks like you have the file configured properly but I would go to the vendor's site and look for any information they have on types of configs for their unattended setup. They must have some documentation on it, if not give them a call..

I found at the vendor site that at least with Inf PC 8.1.1, the silent install is not supported unless you install all components. I used the default installer.properties file and ran the install locally on a machine with command line similar to this c:\temp\install\install.exe -i silent -f c:\temp\install\installer.properties and it seemed to work fine. I am adding SP4 as an after thought, but that is how I got it to install, at least with 8.1.1

the systax is wrong in the sample informatica file for 8.1.1 (i haven't seen others). digging around other files i found that you need to use "customized_set" instead of "custom" and that the bundle_list of components needs to be placed before the install_set.

here is mine to install only powercenter client.

# Installation mode (Silent)
INSTALLER_UI=SILENT

# Installation directory - use "\\" to separate directories.
USER_INSTALL_DIR=C:\\Program Files\\Informatica\\PowerCenter8.1.1

# PowerCenter Client components (PowerCenter Client/Metadata Manager Client)
CHOSEN_INSTALL_BUNDLE_LIST=PowerCenter Client

# Installation set (Complete/Custom)
CHOSEN_INSTALL_SET=Customized_Set

# Metadata Manager Integration Repository Code Page (MS1252/Latin1)
#CODEPAGE=MS1252

# Metadata Manager Integration Repository Name
#INTREPONAME=PowerCenter
