I have a package of Office Communicator 2007 that installs fine using RadiaMSI /i communicator.msi /qn. However, it still displays the progress bar when installing even though /qn should make it quiet with no UI, along with a cancel button displayed. I don't want our users to cancel the install. How can I make this install so nothing displays? If this is a repost I'm sorry please point me to that post, but I did do a search with no result. Thanks for your help.

Forgetting Radia for a second, does the package install silently with a standard msiexec command line on a test machine?

If so can't you just publish it in normal mode rather than advanced - which uses radiamsi.exe?

Thanks for the response. That is a great question, and why didn't I think of that? :) I will give it a try, and report back. My guess is it will work fine, but I will let you know.

No probs. Unless you are creating an AIP and require the level of repair that the advanced publishing provides then no need to over complicate things :)

Radiamsi.exe is quirky.. Is /qn even supported? I have a feeling it's just /q but it's been a while so don't quote me.

Cheers,

Rob,

Yes it does run just going to run and typing in "msiexec /i <path to MSI>". However, I just found another option that I was not aware of that fixed my issue.

Inside of Radia there is an option called UIOPTION, I set this to just INFO, and the cancel button was gone. This is what I really need in the first place so this will work fine. I am very new to using Radia, so I do not know much about it. I did look up RadiaMSI to find if there were differnet options, and from what I could find it just basicly called msiexec.

Thank you very much for your help!
