I am trying to create a MSI of Intel Visual Fortran but creating the MSI is a disaster.

The setup extracts several packages
Intel Fortran Debugger
"" Compiler
Visual Studio Integration

I tried doing a chained installation including the ISscript, which the installation requires.
When installing the debugger or compiler, the installation freezes. Just getting a sand glass (windows mouse icon)

After that I tried creating admin packages of the 3. First it seems to work. But when uninstalling the application the compiler program freezes again.
Looks like it is waiting for a input or something

Can someone tell me what to do?

MARIN,

I am trying to create a MSI of Intel Visual Fortran but creating the MSI is a disaster.
Based on the rest of your post, I am going to assume that you meant to say that you are working with three existing vendor MSIs and that you are not (re)creating any of them from scratch. Please correct me and clarify your scenario if I am wrong.

It is possible that the installation(s) do not support silent installation. Make sure that you are using the correct command line parameters. Use the /qn switch to install silently (no UI). Check the installation/administrator's guide (and possibly Intel's web site) for any information about deploying the software in an enterprise environment. Perhaps there are additional command-line parameters required (e.g. SILENT_INSTALL=YES or something of that nature).

If that doesn't help, then it might be a particular custom action tripping you up. It might be necessary to track down the offending CA and work around it. In any case, start with the documentation and see what you can find.
