Hello, I see that this package is very easy to create. However I have hit a small bump. I already extracted the msi from the exe. When I run the msi I get a prompt for a EULA agreement just as it describes. I have to input ACCEPTEULA=1 ASSOCIATE=1 according to the Package Knowledge Base. How do I input this though so that I can deploy it from Group Policy in Active Directory?

I'm thinking maybe an MST but I don't have any software to make an MST. If that is how I need to do it is there any freeware that will create these?

I appreciate any feedback whatsoever. Thank you,
Matt

Yes, and MST is the way to go. Just create the MST from the Visio MSI and change those properties. A great freeware editor/repackager that supports transforms is the MaSaI Editor. Check it out at http://www.masaieditor.com

Thank you for the reply bkelly. I've installed the program you're talking about and am now looking to where to actually enter the ACCEPTEULA=1 entry. I'm also looking for the option to create the MST.

Hmmm, I found a spot that has a STRING ACCEPTEULA and a VALUE that is blank. I put it to 1 and saved it. I ran it and the acceptance agreement still comes up. If anyone has any pointers or tips on where to look I'd greatly appreciate it. I know I know, I'm asking for the whole world :) I'm new at this but I'm getting better!

To create the MST, select File > New > Transform. Then, to specify or add a property value, Click on the "All Tables" tab and scroll down to the Properties table, you will see all the properties and their values for the MSI. Add or change any of them here. When you hit save, you will have your transform.

Thank you so much for the reply. I did as you said and unfortunally it still isn't working. [:o] The ACCEPTEULA string was only found in checkbox under the first tab. I added it in the properties though as a string with a value of 1, just as you suggested. HMMM, funny how such a simple thing can be a huge obstacle :)

Hmmm. I finally found out the answer. I did a administrative install and pushed it out by group policy. The administrative install creates a package that bypasses the EULA. Geez. I can't believe it was this easy. I guess all office products are probally this easy.

Thanks for all the answers though bkelly. It definitely got me to find alot of kool tools and knowledge on how to manipulate stuff.

hello

what exactly you did for admin install...
Actually for me pacakge works fine when i use /q or /qb or any other silent switch along with ACCEPTEULA=1 ASSOCIATE=1
but when i install with silent switch it gives error that User Agreement not accepted...why is that?

The command line i am using :
vviewer.msi /qn /m vviewer ACCEPTEULA=1 ASSOCIATE=1

Please advise

a) how is this any different from th eOP's command line, and
b) what's the '/m' switch meant to be doing? It's not one I'm familiar with. Nor, it would seem, one that MS is familiar with http://support.microsoft.com/kb/227091
