Hi,

I am having trouble creating an answer for for a setup.exe which calls a .msi file,

I can get the MSI to silently install no problem, however the options are incorrect, so I tried creating an answer file for setup.exe (yes its installshield) to try and get around this problem,

it seems to ignore my /r switch, or even /r /f1"c:\answer.fil" or something similar,

Any suggestions? It's an application I bet no one has ever used, so I won't go too much into the application specifics.

PS: I'm a noob at this, so go easy. :) If it can't be done, it can't be done.

Or if re-writing the MSI is required, then I will investigate that option.

Dude,
If the setup calls an MSI then it's probably just there to launch the MSI (+ check conditions, etc)
Run the setup to extract the MSI - create an MST (transform) and provide the setup.exe with arguments to point it to the transform
Search the forum for similar posts - dunnpy posted something re this recently :)
Good luck
Regards,
Al
