Do you want to create a msi package for a application? Maybe you can give us more details.

If you want to install a msi in silent mode, you can use the next command:

 msiexec /i path\name.msi /qn

For more details you can execute in a cmd windows: msiexec /?

  • s i want to create a msi package as a silent installation. i need to make silent installation
  • i can't understand the execute above command i have 2.3 yr's xperience in installsheild...i need to know about silent installation
    • The command msiexec /? or msiexec /i can be used only if you already have the msi. If you have to create the msi, then is an entire process. You can find on google some nice tutorials for InstallShield. I don't have so much experience on InstallShiel, I am using Wise Package Studio, Admin install or wix.
    • Really??? you have 2.3 years experience in Installshield and you don't know about silent installation???

You supposedly have at least 2 years experience with InstallShield and yet know *nothing* about silent installations?!?!

Apart from my comment above about your experience and silent installation...

You can do a capture of your application and convert it to MSI. Well, if you just have Installshield you will not have the capture tool in it. 

It only comes with the complete suite.. Installshield Admin Studio.

So you can get a new tool or try to find a free one.

One more thing, did you check to see if the application is not yet a Vendor MSI? If is a exe setup maybe you can extract it with 7Zip and check for a msi. Or maybe the setup.exe already has a switch for silent installation for example: /s or /Silent.

Please tell me the name of the application you want to install.
