Hi Eswari,

while creating your <packagename> object with the admintool you probably selected the business intelligence modul.
So all you have to do is check if .NET Framework 2.0 is installed on your targets and your silent installation should work.
Without .NET 2.0 BI will not be installed...
Additionally you might check the %WINDIR%\sapsetupXX.log for errors.

Was the original install MSI or is it a repackage?

If a repackage, you MUST have .NET installed BEFORE you put Wise on your machine if a Wise installation. Otherwise it will not correctly populate the assembly tables.

If this is anything like sap 6.4 get ready for a lot of hair pulling and rework. It is a big complicated thing to repackage.

I repackaged SAP 2000 v.10 and it works perfectly, mayhap you wanna try a repackage instead? Is this the same software?

I don't think so. SAP 6.4 is about 200MB compressed. It was not an MSI so it had to be repackaged.
I never heard of SAP 2000 but I hear v8 is going to be in MSI format.
