Absoloutely new to packaging. Company has just boutght wise packaging studio V8 and Client Management suite V7. I have no problem with straight forward MSI apps but I have an app which must be run from setup.exe - it looks as though this calls the app.msi and goes through the install. If I try and run the app.mis it says setup.exe must be run first. I tried setup /? and it says I can use /S for silent install - this doesn't work. any ideas where I would start on this !!
Cheers
J.

...or even ISSETUPDRIVEN.

If that proves not to be the culprit, run the MSI through WPS's debugger. You'll see straight away what triggers the message.

my wps doesn't have a debugger on itReally? Wow! They're sending out personalised versions now?

Hit 'F1', type 'debug', press Enter.

BTW, if you're that new, before you even start WPS again, get hold of Phil Wilson's The Definitive Guide to Windows Installer.

get your company to give you the proper training you need or they may regret in the long term not doing that

if SETUPDRIVEN= 1 doesn't work ..
then look for the parameters that are passed to msi .
setup is a exe that call's msi so if msilogging is enabled in your system.,
during installation u will log generally kept in %temp% folder.
and look for property that are passed to msi .

so when u get the properties pass those and run msi along.

get your company to give you the proper training you need or they may regret in the long term not doing that
