Hi MKaki:

Mkali try doing this

C:\setup\setup.exe -r -f1c:\setup\setup.iss

this would create an answer file

c:\setup\setup.exe /s/v/qn

This would run your quick install in silent mode.

Try this hopefully this should help you, in case it does'nt do get back.

If i don't want to install itunes, what should i do? Thanks.

My method is during the installation, copy the quicktime.msi and related file from %temp%. But i cannot make it install silently.

msiexec /i QuickTime.msi /t 1033.MST ISSETUPDRIVEN=1

when i type /qn after that, it doesn't work for me.... Any idea? Thanks

Hi Mkali:

As I told you this MSI is setup.exe driven so you have to record an answer file to the setup as posted earlier by me and then you run this command:

\\Server\share\q\QuicktimeInstaller.exe -r -f1\\Server\share\q\setup.iss


\\Server\share\q\QuicktimeInstaller.exe /s/v/qn

This would run the setup in a silent mode. Otherwise this would not start in unattended mode and this should be the final command line:

\\server\share\q\QuickTimeInstaller.exe /V /t \\server\share\q\1033.MST /s/v/qn

I hope this should work , do let me know.

Good day Bhupesh:

I think you're right the same was the problem with me but using the same command line I got it going ISS should be murdered (lol) anyhow this is scriptdriven and cant be executed alone. Thanks once again for helping me out though.

Will like to give you 5 stars here.

Thanks.

But where can i find the "QuicktimeInstaller.exe"?

I can download iTunesSetup.exe only from Apple.com, and found the quicktime.msi in the temp directory only during installation.

Hi Mkali:

Just right click on Apple Itunes.exe and select extract to here (if you have winzip installed) , in case you do not have winzip installed install one and then extract the Itunes.exe.

Is there any way through a transform that I can remove the shortcut on the desktop and quick launch toolbar. Also, is there anyway through a transform to remove the quicktime icon in the tray area.

I tried creating one but I don't really see any setting there worth changing. I hope these things don't have to be don't through registry scripts.

Thanks,

Anthony

\\Server\share\q\QuicktimeInstaller.exe -r -f1\\Server\share\q\setup.iss

\\Server\share\q\QuicktimeInstaller.exe /s/v/qn

\\server\share\q\QuickTimeInstaller.exe /V /t \\server\share\q\1033.MST /s/v/qn



I am still having problems with these methods. First, it seems that I cannot get the /t to run a transform without error. I don't know why. What I did to get around the problem was to use a command line like this:

%Source%\QuickTimeInstaller.exe /L1033 -s -sms -f1"%Source%\setup.iss" -f2"%Ext.SetupLog%\%Title%.log"

It seems that all you need is to select the language and run the silent setup, all other switches are unnecessary.

Then follow up with a script that configures user settings.

One last problem is that I am finding a return code ErrorLevel 1 at the end of the QuicktimeInstaller.exe install. Does Apple use 1 instead of 0 for a successful install?

(Note: I am using version 7.1 of the QuickTimeInstaller, things may have changed since the original posting.)

Hi MeanGene:

It might be that you are using the new version of QuickTime installer, I would be downloading this version and would try the same. However as I said earlier the commands mentioned in this post works with the earlier version of Quicktime.

Can you post the log file generated since Errorlevel 1 means there is something wrong and not normal. Please post the log to resolve the stalemate.
