I have a problem with a silent installation.
The original application does this:there is a setup.exe ( and a setup.ini,autorun.inf) which runs another exe called xsetup.exe. (xsetup.exe runs 4 msi).
I've done an silent install script (a vbscript ) and the app works fine.The problem appears when I have to run the install script from another setup.exe.
When I run setup.exe (who runs install.vbs) the xsetup.exe "dies"..and shows me the failure message.
What should be done so that the setup.exe to run the install script successfully?
Please advise.
Thank you.

Have you tired to install the MSI separately? Which means without using Xsetup.exe. What you can do is install using XSetup.exe and from the EventViewer you can see the sequence, then do another install using just the MSI in correct sequence, if all the Xsetup does is to wrap these MSI's into one executable then extracting the MSI's would do fine.
