I've got a setup.exe that appears to be version 8 and it is MSI based. I've recorded a setup.iss file that works fine. The problem is the setup doesn't wait for the install to finish before terminating. I've tried "setup /s /SMS" and "setup /s /w" but neither works.

Anyone run into one of these before?

Yes, that is where I got the information about /SMS and /w.

Is there something on that page that I am missing?

Hi Bob-
You can also check your syntax. I can remember some installshields that behave differently depending on if you execute

setup.exe /SMS
or
setup.exe -SMS

Yupp.
Same issue with -r. Some installers support this, others wont...
Especially when they are msi wrappers.

One solution could be:
Start setup. Extract (=copy to somewhere else)contents from temp. In your case most probably an ISScript.msi and the application.msi. Cancel setup.
Then for your installation run both msis with msiexec /qb! and your done.
