Few weeks ago i posted a problem with Wise Package Studio not being able to capture INI files in one of Intuti products. I decided to create a response file instead and i have the following issue:

I was able to extract the setup files from Install Shield and then copy it from temp forlder. When i create response file (.iss) using setup.exe -r and then follow the installation instruction i can see the file being created in system folder.

Problem i am having is when i try to install the application with the response file by running the following:

setup.exe /s /f1"path\Setup.iss" The install will ask me to choose the install options. For some reason it is not working, i am wondering if anyone knows what's wrong or what would be the other technology to use in order to install that application.

Thanks

Xaviorpl,

I'm not sure if you've got your command line correct.

I always use:

setup.exe /s -f1"path\setup.iss"

Minor thing, but makes all the difference.

The other option is that the response file you've grabbed isn't the one for the application in question. I always copy them out and rename them to something meaningful - especially if you create a removal answer file too.

Hope this helps,

Very quick test - place the setup.iss file in the same directory as setup.exe and run setup.exe -s

in addition to what has been posted I can say that setup.iss files are notoriously unreliable, but if you have to use that method it somtimes helps (IME) to copy it to a local folder with no spaces in the path name.
