Hi,

Just a little question, I have this setup.exe file, and I want to run it as an silent installation, but I have tried with all the command switches that are available for setup.exe, my question now is, can it that the .exe file is build on an msi.
And what can I do if it is?

It depends on whose Setup.EXE it is i.e. which tool was used to create it. Those produced to extract an MSI and then MSIExec against that MSI *generally* have a switch to which you add the commands you want to pass to MSIExec (e.g. Setup /V"/QB /L*V %TEMP%\SomeLogfile.LOG". Those produced as stand-alone EXEs will use different switches. I imagine the product vendor's support people should be able to help you.

It's simple to find out if the EXE produces an MSI - the MSI will be extracted to the %TEMP% folder. So, when you see the first 'Welcome' screen of the install, see if there's an MSI in %TEMP%.

If you can't find or guess the supported switches for the setup.exe maybe "Universal Silent Switch Finder" could manage to do this. Have a look at http://www.msfn.org/board/Universal-Silent-Switch-Finder-01-t17940.html
