Without using switches?? I did not inderstand what do u mean by that.

I did not package this application so cant tell u exactly, but u can try these options

1. Extract all the msi's and try to create a wrapper as discussed in earlier post.

2. Check what command lines does the app supports by the command line setup.exe /?

3. Try to creat a verbose log for the setup.exe and check for the cammnd line.

and the last option is check for the response file and try to install the application using it.

As far as I know first of all u need to get the command line for the application to do the silent installation. Then u can create a wise script or vbscript or a batch file using that command line.

Wise script mean for me is to create a wrapper using multiple msi's or exe's. I dont understand for what type of script u r asking for?? May be other guys in these forum can help you regarding this.

thanks.

Your client needs educating which is part of your job as a packager. If he's deploying VS Ultimate, he most likely has a deployment system (e.g. SCCM/SMS) in which case his deployment team know how to install MSIs silently.
