I gather much of the information about Visual Studio .NET 2003 from here.

here is my cmd to install:

msiexec /qb- /i \\server\vs2003\vs_setup.msi ALLUSERS=1 TRANSFORMS="full path to transform file" VSEXTUI=1

Once installed, i go to open the program and then windows installer fires up, but shortly after that if closes, and so does the application....perhaps 10secs or so.

All my transform does is remove some components, i have not changed anything else.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Something is triggering self-repair, probably because it is missing or a security issue. Check your application event log, you will find a log entry which will indicate the component that Windows Installer is trying to repair. That should give you a direction in pinpointing what the problem is.

The logs do not indicate anything...other than a successful install.

I have also tried to install without any transform...

msiexec /i \\server\vs2003\vs_setup.msi ALLUSERS=1 VSEXTUI=1

same result. The only way i am able to successfully install this application is by running the setup.exe...

can anyone tell me how to modify the setup.ini to specify the appropriate components to install with Visual Studio.NET 2003?...or is there another way to do this?

Hi f:

Why don't you call the setup.exe in a silent mode by running it with /qn switch in case this does'nt work then try recording an answer file for the same and then do this

c:\setup\setup.exe /s/v/qn
