Hi,

I have a not so funny app... It works fine when you do an manually click installation, all files end upp just fine at the box.
But, if you silent install the app with ADDLOCAL="the feature i want to have" and then use /qn för deploy it, many files don't install on the box and the application don't work. If you add the same feature in the manually installation it works..

I don't know msi on the deep, but is it differant msi streams for attended install and unattended install, or what can be differant?

Hi Per,
is there a particular reason to use the ADDLOCAL property?
It looks like, that there are more features, which are not installed when you use ADDLOCAL.
Load the MSI into ORCA and have a look at the Feature table.

The MSI could well be one authored with InstallShield function calls to perform the installation, rather than the regular tables. If those Custom Actions are set to run only in the User Interface section - a not uncommon occurence - then clearly they won't run when the interface isn't present, as in a silent install.

Hi all, and thanks for the feedback,

The developer of the msi package have put the server installation and the client installation in the same msi. And if you read there manual and how to install the client then you will use property in the command line.

VBScab,
So is it posible to correct it if it is an InstallShield function Call?

is it posible to correct it if it is an InstallShield function Call?The simplest route would be to copy it/them to the Execute Immediate sequence. You may need to set its/their scheduling option. See MSI.CHM for details on 'Custom Action Execution Scheduling Options' .
