I am installing an Installshield 6.10 setup.exe.
I use the command line: setup.exe -s -a -s
What I want to accomplish is to have the installation install with no entry in ARP.
I have tried adding NoAddRemove=Y to [Startup] in the setup.ini with no result.
I have tried various command lines and setup.ini combinations with no results.

Any ideas?

NoAddRemove=Y looks correct though you might want to try NoAddRemove=Yes

However, can you clarify the command line qualifiers you are using to setup.exe ?

For example, does the -a you are using mean you trying an administrative install ? in which case the NoAddRemove would (I imagine) be ignored in that context.

-s = Silent
-a = signals that additional parameters are to be passed to the executable file
-s = again passing silent

The vendor confirmed that there is no such property available.

You've confirmed this setup isn't a wrapper for an MSI? Just checking...

Also, are you named for the musical group or the scooter?

Then, as I see it, you have a couple of options here.

You could repackage the legacy executable into an MSI using Altiris / InstallShield and then set the ARPSYSTEMCOMPONENT property in the MSI.

Or, if repackaging is not an option, locate the registry uninstall key which the legacy installer writes to - it should be something like

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\<Application Name>

and then as a post install activity, create the DWORD registry value SystemComponent within this key and set it's value to 1.
