I'm trying to install and application by the name of Rits which has some logic behind it. The application has 3 parts in total. An exe which has been wrapped in Wise, the exe is extracting a java component and install some token drivers. I would ideally like to leave the logic on this msi and just make an answer file for it. I have tried using the command /r at the end of the exe but no answer file is created.

Also the second part is a self extracting exe which some java templates, is there a way i can execute this as a silent install also???

To find out what switches, if any, are applicable, you need to find out which installer created the EXE, as they're all different. InstallShield, InstallAnywhere, Wise for Windows Installer/Wise Package Studio, INNO Setup....

Once you know that, you can determine what switches can be applied. The installer's source should be obvious, as most vendors are vain enough to put their name somewhere on a dialog. If not, they tend to follow a pattern in the files and folders they extract before installation starts fully.

Lastly, is there not a ReadMe or whatever detailing how to install silently?
