Note
There are 2 parts: pre-requisites and the app. The main app can be extracted to an MSI/MST. For the pre-requisite you can extract the files, then modify the *.hta file to run automatically.

Setup Prerequisites 08.11.05.05_en.exe" /?
Setup Prerequisites 08.11.05.05_en.exe" /c /t:{path to extract files}

once extracted, edit the file "PrerequisitesGUI.hta" and search for the section:

----------
Sub Window_OnLoad
' ***************************************************
' * The code starts here when the window is shown *
' ***************************************************
InstallerGUI_initializeDialog
call showDocumentTree ("After OnLoad")
End sub
----------

Modify it to:

----------
Sub Window_OnLoad
' ***************************************************
' * The code starts here when the window is shown *
' ***************************************************
'InstallerGUI_initializeDialog ' <--- comment this line
call InstallerGUI_startInstallation() ' <--- add this line
call showDocumentTree ("After OnLoad")
End sub
----------

and if you don't want it to stop at the end of the install search for:

----------
MsgBox strInstallComplete, vbOKOnly, document.title
----------

and put a comment single quote at the beginning of the line:

----------
' MsgBox strInstallComplete, vbOKOnly, document.title <--- comment this line
----------

the MSI file can be used with the MST file with normal msiexec information.

There is an issue sequencing Bentley View 8i when launching it causes a BSOD. I logged it with Microsoft who confirmed there a bug in Softgrid 4.1 and 4.2 and quite possibly later versions that can't deal with some of the coding within the Bentley view app. MS aren't going to look at a fix for these versions.

Note

As of Bentley View V8i, the executable CreateDeployment can be used to download all the necessary install files to a folder and configure setup.exe to run silently. Creating a package from the resulting directory and running setup.exe installs the product silently.

Command Line

Using the Bentley View 8Vi (Select Series 3) source files, a silent deployment can be created using the 'CreateDeployment' shortcut. Once done, a silent install can be run using the main executable 'Setup.exe'. If you have a licensing server in the environment you may want to register the software. To do this setup it up manually and export the registry key from (different path for 32-bit environment): HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Bentley\Licensing\1.1

 

Here the command line on a 64-bit system (%~dp0 batch variable used for source path):

"%~dp0setup.exe"

rem Install Registration
REG IMPORT "%~dp0LicensingInfo\Bentley MicroStation V8i Licensing.reg" /reg:64

Virtualization

Virtualizing Bentley View 8Vi (Select Series 3) worked fine using App-V Sequencer 4.6 Sp1. The first command line in this command line section was used.
