I am currently working on the 9.1.3 install. I am having problems getting it to do a quiet install even after reading their guides and online support. I think the problem is in the quiet.ini file, which I cannot find an actual working example for. I submitted a support ticket with them this morning and am waiting for a reply.

If you could post the results of that support ticket that would be great. I need to tackle that one next week.

This is the response I received from their support. I will read through it and see if there is anything I may have missed, but I'm pretty sure I've a read all this before.

The SAS 9.1.3 quiet install documentation is located within the following PDF link:

http://support.sas.com/documentation/installcenter/windows/91/ts1m3/
win_admin.pdf

Review this documentation and take note of the examples. The documentation at the link contains more information than what is listed here and should be read thoroughly.

The information in this note is a brief and concise overview of performing a basic SAS 9.1.3 quiet install.

A SAS 9.1.3 quiet install is a four-step process. The following is an overview of those four steps:

1. Create the image with the SAW.
2. Create the quiet.ini file using the record option.
3. Ensure the minimum system requirements are met using the SRW.
4. Perform the quiet install.

Here are the detailed steps with some troubleshooting tips:
1. Create the image with the SAW.
Use the SAS Administrator Wizard (SAW) to create a deployable
image. A common error is manually copying each CD to a network
location and attempting to use it to create a quiet.ini file.
The quiet.ini file must be created from an image made by the SAW. It
cannot be made from a SAS Software Depot either because it will
fail. The image creation begins by selecting 'Create a SAS Image for
Deployment' from the Administrator Steps on the SAS Setup Disk.

2. Create the quiet.ini file by using the Record option.
When you create or use the quiet.ini file, be sure that you use
the setup.exe within the SAS folder of the image. A common error is
to use setup.exe on the root of the image when you should use
the setup.exe within the SAS folder in the image. See the example in
the documentation link provided regarding 'Using Record Mode
with SAS Setup'.

3. Ensure the minimum system requirements are met by using the SRW.
The minimum system requirements must be met before a quiet install
can succeed. This can be accomplished by running the system
requirements wizard (SRW). The SRW can be deployed silently in
SAS 9.1.3. See the example in the documentation link provided
regarding 'Using Quiet Mode to Deploy the System Requirements'.
Note: Some administrators might choose to determine system-wide
machine requirements and deploy those across their enterprise via
tools of their choice.

4. Perform the quiet install.
Perform the quiet install using the recorded quiet.ini file. The
machines should have enough disk space for the install and should
also have met the minimum system requirements. See the examples in
the documentation link provided above regarding 'Using SAS Setup in
Quiet Mode'. Example commands are in the section 'Using a Quiet
Record File'.

Hi - my first post\reply - yipee.

Not sure if this is helpful but...

Have recently 'investigated' SAS 9.1.3 to decide whether it was worth repackaging. Decided against it because of size and number of end users.

During my investigation I completed the following:
1. Ran SRW (SAS requirements wizard) silently.
2. Created SAS image (for Personal users - not Client users).
3. Created Quiet.ini for use with this image.
4. Installed the complete package silently.

As far as I can remember I didn't encounter any problems silencing the install - am basically running the setup exe with the appropriate switches.
Planned on using SMS at a later date to deploy the app. Going to reinstall it now to confirm...

I still have the files used if anyone wants to take a look..?
