Hi all,

I need to perform an silent install of iW Document Manager...
The switch /qb doesn't work. So I need to know which properties I can give to the msi to do what I want.
I should be interresting for me to know how can I do even for all other packages.
So how can I find it ? there is a tool to do this ? to know all properties to give to an msi file ?

Thanks you in advance...

To view the defined Properties withing this vendor .msi open the .msi in IS, Orca or Altiris and see whats being set. To change them apply a transforms (.mst) with the changes incorporated.

Sorry if you have always this question...
But even with orca, I can't find the correspondance between properties and an argument I can to give to the msi...
Can you tell me where I can search by example in Orca ?

Thank a lot for your anwers !

When you open the MSI in ORCA you'll have a table list on the left side. Clicking on a table will show the table view on the right side which contains the rows (information) for that table.
Find the Property table from the table list and you'll see the defined property for that package.

If you want to change any property from the command line which you pass to MSIEXEC the property must be a public property (name of property must be all uppercase), ex. msiexec /i <path to msi> ALLUSERS=2 /QB-!

Information regarding options for MSIEXEC can be found at:
Command-Line Options
Standard Installer Command-Line Options

be aware that properties specified on the command line are dropped which can cause unwanted results during repair modes.

I guess John would provide the solution for it to right [;)]
Save the property to the registry and read it back
