FileMakerPro9.msi

Assisted Install.txt

Package cannot be installed without "Setup" folder. Because this setup folder contains 10 dll files and 1 exe which are required for the installation.

If you want to suppress the Registration window and popup, for that we need to disable one custom action.

Goto Dialog section and find the finish button and Double click on it, remove the event condition from that.

- By default It is not supporting LIMITUI=1, (If we add Assisted Install.txt, then it will support Silent Installation LIMITUI=1)

The content of Assisted Install.txt as follows

[Assisted Install]

Name= USERNAME
Organization= COMPANYNAME
License Key= XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX
Language=English
Admin_NoNewDatabases= 0
Shortcuts= 1
Registration= 1
SkipDialog= 1
DisableUpdateNotify= 1


- The package is not supporting Admin Installation with SHORTFILENAMES. It is giving error during installation if we perform installation from the created Admin image.

- In the vendor MSI there is no HKCU entries

- While launching the shortcut it will prompt the start guide window and will ask for username. To suppress these window we have to add the following HKCU Entry to the shortcut's feature/component
HKCU\Software\FileMaker\FileMaker Pro\9.0\Preferences

Hide Template Dialog =1
User name=[USERNAME]

These are the properties we have added in mst


COMPANYNAME=COMAPANYNAME
USERNAME=USERNAME
AGREETOLICENSE=YES
LIMITUI=1
INSTALLCODE=XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX(Without "-")

Download fmp_9.0v3_win_produpdater.exe

This is a full installation, which can be installed stand alone without the need of installing version 9.0 v1 first!
First unpack the installer with 7zip or Uni-Extract.
For a functional Installpoint, you need the following files:
FileMaker Pro 9.msi
Data1.cab
Data2.cab
Data3.cab
Data4.cab
Assisted Install.txt
The 'Setup' sub folder.
10xx.mst for your preferred install language.

To make the installer run without version 9.0 v1, change the following line in the property table:
LanguagePackInstaller 0

Disable the following line in the InstallExecuteSequence table to set your own features:
SetDefaultFeatures OFF 992
(OFF means a condition which is not true)

Now you can disable all unwanted features.
Go to the feature table and set the 'Level' column to "0" in each line you want to disable.

To remove the AutoUpdater Plugin, go to the components table and set a condition which resolves always to untrue to the following line:
FileMaker_Pro_INSTALLDIR.Extensions.FMSAUC.fmx {3EC9555D-9D8E-41BC-8CE6-3A02852BDE7D} ...

Be aware, that the 'setup' sub folder is needed, as one of the resource DLL's in it, is called by the MSI during the install.

The MSI reads some important variables from file 'Assisted Install.txt' during a silent install. Some of them are:
- License Key
- Organization
- Desktop Shortcuts
- Language
