Hey all!

Once again, i'm having package deployment, and only you all can help me solve it!! lol.

Here is the problem. I have just created the Response file, the setup.iss file, by Setup.exe /r and going through the entire installation. Everything seems up and up, and when i do the installation i use the command Setup.exe /v /qn. to install it silently using the Response file.

However, there is ONE window that keeps poping up asking for a user interaction. Its a window where one has to choose a test database or a production database. I can't have that popping up, and I have NO idea why the Response file isn't picking that up when i first create it.

Is there ANY way i can edit the Response file to add that particular choice so that it's totally automatic? I open the setup.iss file with notepad and i understand how they are doing it, but i have no idea what to put as the 'category' like "[{5394DE4B-3CC0-4C0F-B6A7-7BFC749EDAE5}-SdAskDestPath-0]" and i have no idea what information i have to put under it.

Any help would be awesome!! Thanks all in advance for your time...

Ok, i think i know how to fix this. But i need to figure out the name of a particular Dialog Box.

Anyone know how to find out a name of a Dialog Box?
I have edited the MSI using the AdminStudio, but when i go to Dialogs under User Interface, it's empty.

Any help would be awesome!

Thanks again.

since its an installshield installation to begin with, can't you just try & convert it to a pure MSI & ditch the setup.exe?
