Hello

I am working on Adobe Photoshop CS5 64bit v12.0.0 which will get installed only in Windows 7 64 bit.This application will get installed only from the path "C:\Temp".This application will run only through "/qn" means Silently and will only Run as an Administartor from the cmd.While my application will install it will run an "Setup.exe32" from the task manager and the installation will get completed only after the setup.exe get dissappeared. I was having the msi of the same application along with the source.So i just had to create a transform of the same and a registry into that.I did that.The client will be checking the application by running a loader.exe which will get the data from a loader.ini which contains the details of the application like its .msi name , product code.This Loader.exe will run only silently with a blue screen.The blue screen should remain till the end of the installation.So what i did is , I created a blank msi with a vbscript which will first copy the the source to the local machine "C:\Temp" folder.I created a bat file with the cmd command to run the msi and the transform from the temp folder.Everything is working fine.But the problem is the Loader.exe(blue screen) will get disappeared as soon as the folders(source) has been copied.Means while my parent msi is running the bat file , the installation completes without running that Loader.exe.

So later i tried by directly running the vendor msi and transform from the vbscript using Run method.But i came to know that a msi from another msi wont run simultaneously.And my script is working fine from outside the msi.

Can anyone help me to solve this issue.Hope all understood what i meant.

Thanking you in anticipation. [8|]

Hi, It was a little mess... I loose the wire in the middle! but why you don't read the Adobe's instructions for silent deployments?

Hi Rosh,
Perhaps you should try wrapping the msi into and exe rather than trying to nest one msi within another, it not altogether possible to run an msi from an msi. Have a look into winrar or 7zip sxw self extracting exe options.

Cheers
