Hello,

I've been able to succesfully automate a SQL2008 Express install. One issue I have is the setup.exe opens a dos console window during the silent installation. If this window is closed the install fails. Is there anyway to suppress this?

Suppress what? The DOS box or the idiot user who closes a window, the purpose for which he has no understanding? For the latter, you may want to consider The Persuader, a short, stubby lump of wood fashioned specifically for User Education and available from my web site. For the former, you should consider using the bare MSIs with a transform applied to whichever is the one producing the DOS box (probably SQL_RUN.MSI) in which you have changed the way that the DOS program is called.
