Hi,

I am trying to do a package for MicroStrategy 8.0.1 and getting nowhere...

I found this very helpful entry in AppDeply from one of our contributors and I am able to record the setup.iss, BUT running the setup again (with --ResponseFile="C:\setup.iss" command line parameter) gives me the regular setup box and an UNsilent installation!?!!? If I use the -s (for silent installation) with -F1/-F2 parameters, then the installation LOOKS like its doing something (with the setup.exe showing in the Task List), but then quits without making any directories/files or links. The log shows that the process finished properly (but it hasn't).

I have tried re-running the installation and re-capturing the setup.iss in the C:\Windows directory and I have checked that the paths that I am giving are correct. All I can suggest is that the setup.iss was recorded incorrectly in some way (I have seen this with early response files recorded in Oracle Universal Installer).

I am installing upon Windows XP SP2 as an administrator.

Ideas?


Regards,


QuietLeni

Hi Wildhair,

Yes... you are right, but I am having problems with the installation not removal!!!

BTW - thanks for the very helpful entry.

Hi Guys,

I'm trying to silently install Microstrategy 8.01 and having a similar problem to QuietLeni. I successfully created a setup.iss file using command:

setup.exe /r

BUT when I try to silently run the setup and setup.iss file using:
setup.exe /s setup.iss
the installation looks like it's doing something for about half a minute and then quits without making any changes.

The setup.log file however says it's installed successfully.

Here's what my setup.iss file looks like:
