Hello,

I'm trying to repackage an apps built in my company.
They used Installshield to package it.

So I used the command line : appli.exe /r /f1appli.iss to get the ISS file

This is the content of my ISS :

[InstallShield Silent]
Version=v7.00
File=Response File
[File Transfer]
OverwrittenReadOnly=NoToAll
[{42889A80-2C0E-11D4-BF1E-005004AA9FCC}-DlgOrder]
Dlg0={42889A80-2C0E-11D4-BF1E-005004AA9FCC}-SdWelcome-0
Count=1
[{42889A80-2C0E-11D4-BF1E-005004AA9FCC}-SdWelcome-0]
Result=1
[Application]
Name=appli
Version=7.5.6
Company=###
Lang=0009

The problem is, when I tried to install this appli silently, using the ISS that do not work correctly.
I try to install on a fresh new OS : appli.exe /S /f1appli.iss

I can read a popup "uninstall older version", then I see the shortcut appearing on the desktop.
At the end of the installation, the shortcut disapear. and seems all data being deleted.

so, my feeling is : my command line Install then Uninstall directly..

Do you have any tips ?

  • Ummm...why are you trying to re-package an internally-constructed package?!?! If you need an MSI, just have the developer create one!!
  • It's an old source, made for WinXP, that "package" is not silent install ready. And I need to repackage (get Silent install) it. Usually ISS response file technique is working fine.. not this time.. no need MSI especially, just get an automatic Silent install.
