Hi, I have an application installation (Dolphin Imaging) that I'd like to automate (for use in SCCM and MDT) and I've tried various suggestions here at AppDeploy with no luck so far. The CD has a setup.exe and an MSI and if I try to use the MSI only it tells me that I must use setup.exe. Any ideas how I can install this with no prompt or intervention? I've also tried Repackager and it seemed to work until I clicked the icon and it complained about a parallel install not being correct (?).

So far none of these have worked:
setup.exe /q
setup.exe /qn
setup.exe /silent
setup.exe /s
setup.exe /NoUserInput
setup.exe /unattended
setup.exe /CreateAnswerFile
setup.exe /quiet
setup.exe /r & /s


I also tried using the msi with ISSETUPDRIVEN=1 and that didn't work either.

Thanks for any ideas.

-Matt

There might be a Launch Condition that is causing the problem. If so, you can try deleting the Launch Condition row in the table (in the MST of course) and try the MSI/MST install again.

If that doesn't work, try installing the MSI with a log file (/l*v c:\windows\temp\dolphin.log) then look in the log to see where the failure happens. It could be a custom action running that is causing the failure.

I used this for one of my installs (QuarkXpress).

"\\server\folder\Setup.exe" /s /v"/qn ALLUSERS=1 TRANSFORMS="MY.MST" /liwear "QuarkXPress.log""

Note the location of the "". This one was real picky about the command syntax, what I could include in the transform and what/where it was called from.

In the MSI/MST (as viewed in Orca) under the ActionText there is a "LaunchConditions" but "Template" is empty.

In searching the log I didnt see any refrence to a LaunchCondition there either - I assume I'd see it if one is defined?

some excerpts from the log:

Property(C): STANDARD_USE_SETUPEXE = This installation cannot be run by directly launching the MSI package. You must run setup.exe.

Property(C): ISSCRIPT_VERSION_MISSING = The InstallScript engine is missing from this machine. If available, please run ISScript.msi, or contact your support personnel for further assistance.

MSI (c) (E0:AC) [16:03:04:693]: Windows Installer installed the product. Product Name: Dolphin Imaging. Product Version: 11.0.41. Product Language: 1033. Manufacturer: Dolphin Imaging Systems. Installation success or error status: 1603.

Thanks

Go to the LaunchCondition table. See if there are any Conditions in there. One of them is most likely looking for setup.exe. I'd remove that condition for the LaunchCondition table (again via the MST not the MSI itself).

Property(C): ISSCRIPT_VERSION_MISSING = The InstallScript engine is missing from this machine. If available, please run ISScript.msi, or contact your support personnel for further assistance.
Look in the folder where your install is. See if you have ISScriptxx.msi in there (xx would be the version). If so, run that MSI first then try your install again. If it installs, you'll need to make sure that ISScript is installed prior to installing Dolphin by running msiexec for the ISScript.msi and then follow that with running msiexec for the Dolphin MSI and your MST.

This worked! Now I need to figureout how to get what I want in the MST. This is all new to me, so wondering if Orca is the best (free) for creating an MST?

Thanks!

I'm told that there are multiple ways to "skin a cat". I'm glad that JMacLauren's way worked for you. [8|]

TBH, though, before you do anything else, read and digest Phil Wilson's The Definitive Guide To Windows Installer. You'll find the learning curve is very steep and you absolutely have to know WI fundamentals before diving in.

JimDandy I am currently trying to deploy this app using SCCM but I am getting no love from Dolphin.  Did you get a silent install for Dolphin Imaging?
