Hi,

When i try to install an application in command line using silent installation command line parameters it isd not working. The command line arguments used for silent installation are /quiet or /qn or qb. Please find the command below used for installation:

msiexec /i app.msi transform=app2.mst /qn /l*v C:\ins.log

Kindly help me in this regard.

Thanks & Regards,
S.Yuvaraj.

So telling us how it is not working may be a help?

What does the log tell you? Does the install fail?

Also it should be TRANSFORMS= not transform=

Hi,

Sorry for the delay. After some investigation we have found that the source contains an exe that is executed through wise script in custom action that does not allows the silent installation of the application. More over the other problem is it puts two entries in ARP(one for msi and other for exe). Is it possible to remove the arp entry for the exe? The Application name is Nortel Contivity VPN Client V4.65

Thanks & Regards,

may be you should check if the exe provides an option to run silently too.
No option of re-package it?

You have to wonder about vendors, don't you? Surely someone at Nortel has the nous to figure that 99.99% of their customers are going to be deploying their product and will probably want to do that silently. It defies belief, it really does...

Anyway, I'd capture the EXE separately into a new MSI and deploy it as a dependency (or vice-versa, it probably doesn't matter).
