Hello all,

I am installing this package using Install Shield Setup.exe with the Setup.iss(response) file for a silent install. Problem here is that this combination (C:\PATH TO\Setup.exe /s /f1C:\PATH TO\Setup.iss) for silent run, keeps on generating a log file (setup.log). Do I turn off that log file? Keeping in mind this only generates when I run setup.exe with setup.iss for silent run. But just running the setup.exe doesn't generate this log file. Anyone, any help is appreciated.

Thanks
AK

I don't know about suppressing the log, but you can redirect it to a folder of your choice using the parameter -f2<path to log file>.
You could then delete this log afterwards.

Thanks pjgeutjens for quick response.

But it's not doing the job. It does create the log file in a separate folder but doesn't kick in the installation. You see I am using the install script wrapper to call the VB, which is actually doing the install. So I have to specify the path to both (setup.exe & setup.iss) with /s /f1, for this to work silently and call the VB. With /f2, it only generates the log file in a different folder and that's where it stops.

Thanks

you are using the command line

<path to>setup.exe /s /f1<path to .iss file> /f2<path to log file>

right?
