For silent install, I use vs_setup.msi. To get it is a bit tricky, here's how you do it:

1. Download vb_web.exe from microsoft.com

2. Unpack vb_web.exe

3. Open baseline.dat with any text editor

4. Under [vs_setup.dll] you find the URL-Parameter (something like that: URL=fwlink/?LinkId=165113)

5. Go to go.microsoft.com\fwlink\?LinkId=165113 (switch 165113 for the correct ID from the baseline.dat)

6. Download ixpvb.exe

7. Unpack it and use vs_setup.msi for silent installation

Necessary Parameters:

vsextui=1 (makes the .msi think it has been run from the .exe. Without this, you get an error)

PIDKEY= (you need this to give your Registration Key to the Installer

This also works for all other Instances of Microsoft Visual Studio Express

If you cannot open .NET 4.0 or 4.5 Projects, you also have to install Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Multi-Targeting Pack

msiexec /i NetFx_DTP.msi EXTUI=1

All components of the setup can be run seperately and consist of MSI files. Some MSI's might be hidden in a setup.exe, but when running the setup it will tell you where the MSI is extracted (Something like C:\<random hex>)

The following components are needed to get a working default installation on Windows 7 x86:

wcu\Silverlight\Silverlight.3.0.exe /q
wcu\dotNetFramework\dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64.exe /q /norestart /log %temp%\dotNetFx40.log

msiexec /i wcu\EFTools\ADONETEntityFrameworkTools_enu.msi REBOOT="ReallySuppress" /qn USING_EXUIH=1

msiexec /i wcu\Help\help3_vs.msi REBOOT="ReallySuppress" /qn USING_EXUIH=1 VS_SETUP=1

msiexec /i wcu\MTPack\NetFx_DTP.msi REBOOT="ReallySuppress" /qn EXTUI=1

msiexec /i wcu\Watson\dw20shared.msi REBOOT="ReallySuppress" /qn

msiexec /i vs_setup.msi PIDKEY="[serial-with-dashes]" REBOOT="ReallySuppress" /qn NOVSUI=1 /lv* %temp%\vbe2010.log


[edit]
Almost forgot: The VC++ Redists 2008 and 2010 have to be installed as well. Didn't mention them above because they are part of the image deployment already over here.


have fun!

Watson command line above didn't work for us.

This worked:

msiexec.exe /i wcu\Watson\dw20shared.msi APPGUID={9E9D30B2-2065-4FDE-B756-8F1A6EABAFC3} REBOOT=Suppress REINSTALL=ALL REINSTALLMODE=vomus /lv watson.log

We couldn't get the vs_setup.msi to work, however it turns out that all that is needed is:

setup.exe /q
