I have a setup.exe that when run will spawn a MSI. I want to pass some command line variables to this MSI. I need to pass it a ALLUSERS=1 yet nothing I type seems to work.

Setup.exe /s /v ALLUSERS=1 /qb!
Setup.exe /v ALLUSERS=1 /qb!
Setup.exe /s /v "ALLUSERS"=1 /qb!

and many other and they all fail.

What is the proper syntax to do this?

Thank you.

could you not just grab the msi when it extracts itself and that way bypass the exe all together?

Yes, I could do that but it is not needed for this EXE. I really would like to know the syntax for this. 1) for this EXE and 2) for future EXE's.

Thank you.

Hi mh..,
you need it to type like this:
Setup.exe /s /v"ALLUSERS=1 /qb!" There is no space after /v.
