I've created a transform to help automate the installation with EULA and registration settings which work fine, but for some reason it won't install the prerequisites. If I manually run Setup_ST.exe it prompts and asks if I want to install the prerequisites and they install fine.

Here are the prereqs:

  • Microsoft Text-to-speech
  • MSDE
  • Visual C++ 2008 redistributable

My command line looks like this: Setup_ST.exe TRANSFORMS="<path to transform>\Streets2010.mst" /qb+

Do I need to modify the Setup_ST.ini in any way to get the prereqs to install?

I am also working on this as well Permster!

I have been able to get the .MSI to install, however now upon completion I run into a license state error. My company purchased a 200 user VLK but every install its the same problem. What sort of transforms did you end up using? Maybe we can help eachother out. :)

Are you sure that the set-up stub takes arguments directly like that? I would think you'd need to extract the MSI and use MSIExec.EXE to run against it.

Hi guys,

The following may or may not help: How to deploy MS Autoroute 2010. Single click installation required. (Microsoft AutoRoute 2010 is the European version of your Microsoft Streets and Trips 2010.)

Setup_St.exe does accept arguments. See the package KB command lines for Streets & Trips 2006. I have verified that my transform does get applied correctly. It's only the prerequisites that don't install.

Also, my Setup_ST.ini already has the following in it:
[SETUP]
ShowPrereqsDialog=0
ShowFinishDialog=0

Any other ideas?

Looks like something built into the Setup_St.exe program. Here's the log file.

Knows it's a silent installation and automatically skips over the prereqs. [:(]

Doesn't really make sense as all the prereq install commands are silent. I have no clue how to force it to install them other than wrap this setup with a script and install the prereqs first. What a pain...
