Hello All

I recently started packaging and started by searching the internet for usefull resourses. I have an immedaite need with creating a silent unattened install of Photoshop 8.0.

Reding the forums here I tried the following:
1) Create a response file by Run setup -r -s -fc1:ps8.iss
2) enter all the relevant info, including name, and serial # and complete the setup
3) Launch the setup /s /fc1:ps8.iss

The problem I run into is that the setup fails. So I remove the /s switch and get to the serial # entry and notice that this is blank. I suspect the setup is fialing because of this. I then try to troubleshoot this further by verifying that the serial # is entered in the ps.iss file correctly.

Maybe its just the way I am creating this ISS file that is incorrect or I need to perform additional steps. Is there a better method of achieving the end result?

Thanks in advance for your responses.

On a side note I would appreciate any usefull packaging resoures you can throw my way. I have access to Wise Package studio...

You may want to have a look here. I don't know the syntax offhand but you may want to try renameing ps8.iss to setup.iss and just using setup -s (with setup.iss in the installation source directory). Also look at setup.log and browse the installshield site. It should have an error code in there.
Also some vendors allow setup /a which would expand the files to a directory. They may have an MSI you can modify, or they may expand files you can build an MSI from using Wise.

Thanks. That worked. Now onto the next package! :-)

To recap:
Run setup -r to capture the setup.iss which will be copied to the windows\setup.iss folder
Copy the setup.iss to the app source location.
Install the application using setup -s and it all works.

One think about this though...How do I auto-activate the product?
