IIRC, BO extracts MSIs so I imagine that any patch would be an MSP.

Consequently, the best option is to create an Administrative Installation Point with the MSI, patch the AIP and then install on the client machines.

hi

Even i tried with silent installation with arguments called "exe - install" and it works properly but now when i uninstall using command "exe -uninstall" then it agains tries to install the same and not uninstall why this should happen any idea...??

yes regarding admin installation means you meant to say admin installation for main MSI and then sequence wise patch installation.
because in this case i have main exe extracting msi and later on 2 patch exe's so first patch extracts 4-5 msp's...

you need to patch your distribution msi with all the msp files. To do this first make an Administrative Install Point (AIP) of the msi, using the msiexec.exe /a <msi path> command.

The resulting network source will contain an msi that you then have to patch using the command msiexec.exe /p <path to msp file> /a <path to AIP msi file>

This will result in an msi that incorporates all the patch data and you can use to install with a single command.

hi

Ok thanks for this but one query as u said msiexec /p "path to msp file" means i have 2 patch exe with me so i have to try this twice one after another or how

as i am not aware of this m doing first time...also after admin installation i will get msi in extracted temp folder itself...

still i will try first and let you but please clarify my above doubts....

I dont' think the setup exe switches your using are valid.

does this help:

What Peiter explained is the best way to go about it though, forget about the exe

In order to apply the patches, the EXEs must extract them. I'm guessing they'll get dumped in %TEMP%. Grab them from there and copy them somewhere safe. Then you can apply them to your AIP.

ok but apart from this i need to know that suppose i have 1 msi and then need to apply two patch exe and then finally again 1 msi so in this case if i try this way:

installing 1st msi then silently installng first patch exe and then is it nessecary to check silent uninstalltn after that for 1st patch as i wll be installing other patch n then msi and then if to check uninstallation i will uninstall this last msi....

how should i go if this then my exe -install cmd line is working fine..please suggest..

you don't get it. you don't install the msi, you have to create an AIP, and applied the patches to that. this will give you a full msi that will be used for installation. see previous posts for instructions.

No i got that AIP installing means my question is the same on that if instead of patching i go by this way like as i explaines so even that is fine as i concern more on silent installation so m asking that uninstallation silently individually is not nessecary thts it.

uninstallation silently individually is not nessecary

correct.

The advantage of the method I described is that you have one centrally located patched source for all your installations. You don't have to patch all the clients separately. Both installation and uninstallation are done like any msi. Once the patches are applied to the AIP source, you can just install the MSI, and it will install everything in one go.

DLLs normally fail to register when one or more of their dependencies are missing.

Drop the offending file onto Dependency Walker (free from MS and another tool without which you will struggle to do this job properly). It will highlight any missing dependencies. You can ignore "errors" connected with dynamically-loaded libraries (MPR.DLL is one such which crops up often).

as the scab man says, you need to determine why the file is not registering, simply removing it from the selfreg table (why is a vendor using this table) is not a solution

i copied in reuqired folderWhich folder? If the dependencies aren't in the same folder as the dependee or on the PATH, the registration will still fail.

BTW, I'd not noticed it in the past when transforming BO so I'm stunned to learn that HP is using the SelfReg table!

I'm working on BusinessObjects Enterprise XI and there's loads of selfreg entries and 42 thousand files - Rubbish

If I were you I'd start again get yourself a clean machine read the vendor documentation and make sure you have all prerequisites installed.

Create and patch you AIP and try to install.

Just copying missing files willy nilly probably wont help you. They might depend on something too!!

You cannot fail to have noticed the entreaty in my signature: why not do what it advises and use ProcMon to help diagnose the problem? It will tell you exactly what's going on. Don't forget to filter any unnecessary processes, though, otherwise the output window quickly gets unwieldy.

If you have followed the instructions you have been given to date, you will have ended up with a patched AIP, meaning that the resulting MSI is patched. Therefore, there is no need to uninstall the patch (indeed, most patches are marked as uninstallable) since it will by definition have become part of the package.

If you're persisting in patching clients individually, why bother asking for advice if you're going to ignore it?
