What are the tricks to get an MSI file that will only run under it's Setup.exe to install by itself?

Hi Steve,
See: http://itninja.com/question/how-do-you-roll-out-new-machines?4324
Also try "setup.exe /a". Maybe you get an admin install.
Important: It depends on the tools used to create this package. Which software are we talking about here?
Please turn on logging and have a look, where it stops without being called from setup.exe.
Regards, Nick

Hey Nick,
The app is Roxio Creator Basic 9, the OEM version that comes with HP Desktops. The /a doesn't work, in fact I haven't been able to pass any switches through Setup.exe command line. I am trying somethings I saw in http://itninja.com/link/microsoft-msde-home5.

when I packaged this I was able to get a document with command lines from the vendor.
I'm sure they'll do the same for you, just contact Roxio support.

This one is easy :-)

The HP Version...

From memory so...

The HP version installs as per componet ie Labeller, Data, audio and core etc.

the silent install is D:\Roxio9\setup.exe /QN RX_EULA_ACCEPTED=1 Reboot=ReallySuppress ADDLOCAL=ALL

d: being your cd-rom.

Now you can also do this by group policy.

go into each component CORE for example
Create a MST with your settings. do the same for each MSI componet and you can deploy this by group policy.
I created a Active setup for my HKCU settings to disable auto update and set the Start page to DATA.

One more thing your not allowed to distro this by group policy nor is it allowed to be part of your desktopits not even allowed to sit on your network, This has to be loaded in an One to One relationship with the engineer and the Desktop see the OEM lincencing.

I had a very rude E-mail from Roxio.

If you need any help PM me I did this in wise studio 7.
