Wondering if any has come a cross this kind of issue.

Installshield script driven (ISSETUPDRIVEN) with a MSI installer.

It dosent seem to record, tried -r /r with and without the -f1 /f1 pram. I also tried full debugging mode to capture the MSI logs so I could just pump the Properies into the MSI via MST, but it doesnt supply all the values I need to create the MST (installer needs SQL paths, passwords, etc).

Really quite stange, I was wondering if any one has come across a Installshield installer which just dosent record, is it something the vendors sometimes do?

Also /S /v/qn does diddle squat, not silent at all!

But I did notice it does read the setup.ini file when you run the setup.

Thoughts, ideas?

  • Can't you bypass the exe installer altogether and just use the MSI?

    Setting logging (voicewarmup) will show you what the exe is passing to the MSI from the log in %temp%. Transform the MSI with those settings and test.
  • Tried that, was loaded with info, but missing some critical bits.
