Hi,

I am trying to install Primavera 6 silently - their recommended method is creating setup.iss.

When I run "Setup.exe /s /f1"C:\<pathname>\setup.iss" /f2"C:\<pathname>\installlog"
It fails to install. The error log is:
[ResponseResult]
ResultCode=3

This normally means something is missing from the setup.iss file. Having looked at it, I can't see anything missing.

Does anyone have any ideas? I have pasted the setup.iss file below. Even though the HostName, Password, Product Code1 and ProductCode2 do exist on the file, I have tken them out from this post for obvious reasons.

Thanks,

Mike.

Unless these packages are huge and/or I'm under time pressure, I don't waste time getting them to work, I just re-package them. If you take that route, see http://itninja.com/link/techical-guide:-silent-install-for-storagecentral-srm-5.09

Thanks for your reply. I have also tried snapshot, making sure monitor of "non microsoft odbc" enabled. However, right at the end of snapshot, I get "Java Plug-in 1.5.0_10 is not installed properly". Primavera seems to spawn many other processes during install. e.g. installs dot net framework and many sql software.

May have to revert to how I distributed Primavera 5 - by dumping all the source files on user's c:\, and then run a script that kicks off setup.exe, and leave the user to click next, next etc. Not ideal, but due to time constraints ...

Cheers.

So, install those as pre-requisites. .Net F/W is easy (MSI), JREs are standard InstallShield Setup.EXEs for which you can supply response files...

The Java registration method can be fixed by stopping the registration of npjava[xy].dll - where xy is 12, 13, 14, or 15, according to what flavour of JRE is involved. There's another DLL or two in one of the JREs (can't recall which) which has a DLLRegisterServer entry point but which can't be registered with RegSrv32 (if that's how you're registering DLLs - not recommended, though)

I did set Dot Net F\W as dependancy.

Thanks for tip on Java issue - will have a look.

Cheers, Mike.

I did set Dot Net F\W as dependancy....so why does your snapshot include it?

As for the other inclusions, they must be extracted at some point so why not snap those, too? Takes time, sure, but how much time are you going tospend getting your response file to work?
