You have assumed that the IS stub extracts and executes an MSI which is by no means a foregone conclusion.

Let's say, for argument's sake that it does. You have also assumed that the package developer added the logic to parse MSIExec comnmand line switches which, again, is not necessarily the case.

What is the application? Can it be freely downloaded, so that someone could take a look?

So why are you expecting it to understand arguments which are used when installing MSIs?!? Jeez...

And have you actually checked whether or not it extracts an MSI?

There are a lot of options when it comes to InstallShield switches. If the vendor supplied an installation document, it may also include silent install instructions. If not, you might need to Google for what your looking for. Chances are someone has had the the same question and asked it somewhere.

When you ran the installation with the -r, did it create a setup.iss file? Be sure that is in the same directory as the setup.exe.

FYI, for those of us that can't read minds, including the name/version of the app and what you have tried already will get you more accurate answers,

Setup.exe /?

If not, I would recommend that you Repackage the Legacy Installer to MSI.

Setup.exe /? or setup.exe /help doesn't usually work with InstallShield, or at the least it won't likely give you the correct switches. More likely, if you can figure out what virsion of InstallShield was used to make the package, you may be able to find what switches were available.

For example.

I agree with Matias, Taking a snapshot for such a problem is the best way forward.

But I would like to raise the same question again,

Suppose we have Setup1.exe which calls Setup2.exe during its installation. Assume we have to create response file by -r for setup1.exe. In this scenario will Response file contain the responses we execute when setup2.exe gets installed ? or

We create RSP for setup1.exe and then we create RSP for Setup2.exe
How we implement the whole thing as SEtup1.exe will always install the setup2.exe

God I am so confused, but hope you guys get the point.
