I am trying to create a mst for quickbooks 2016. Everything works when i run msiexec msi TRANSFORMS=mst.
However if i use /qb! not all components get installed. 
I think there is condtion on the component, maybe CA? Cant find a solution.

Any ideas would help.

Thank you,
Michael.

log, log, log log log.

LOG!

As mentioned, have you check the logs when installing? Log with /*vx .\Nameof.log.
When using msiexec without /qb you're interactive mode which is different from /qn (non interactive mode). 

Anyway, easiest way to check is to verify the install level of the features and set the PROPERTY appropriately.

My understanding is that there is something in InstallUISequence that isn't in the InstallExecuteSequence. InstallUISequence is not running with /qn switch. I am going through the logs and cant find anything?

  • Could be, more likely the install level, check what the install level for the features are and get the INSTALLLEVEL property higher.

    Use Orca or InstEd to check.

I am getting as far as installing an application with a command line. However when i try to open the the application i am getting an error 3371. Could not load the license data. I have tried deleting C:\ProgramData\Intuit\Entitlement Client\v8 folder, that didnt help. Have you seen anything like that?

Hi, as rileyz has already stated, log... *always*
As you have noticed yourself, using the /qb-! or /qn fails, which in my experience is always a CA being present in the UI seq., but not in not in execute immediate.
For cases like this I always define that in the transform all dialogues should be disabled, only the progress dialogue is visible, but the escape / exit functionality is removed. This allows you to carry out an installation without using the /qn switch, but still disallows a user to interrupt it. Ok course if the installation runs into an error, you *may* get a dialogue, but that's what testing is for right?

Cheers
Phil
