Trying to package Nokia PC Suite 6.84.10.3 is a little different to the past packages.

The file downloaded off website http://www.nokia.com.au/nokia/0,8764,79711,00.html

Nokia_PC_Suite_6_84_10_3_eng_web.exe

I found a couple of ways to silently install this. Have not tested via AD yet as i use Tivoli.

First and easiest is cmd script:
c:\%location%\Nokia_PC_Suite_6_84_10_3_eng_web.exe /SILENT="1" /DISABLE="AUTORUN"

This obviously silent installs with the only appearance being program on the task bar that cannot be opened and disappearing when complete. It also disables the program from starting up automatically when it is finished installing.

The other is more of a failsafe way in which actually start the installation up to the point asking for the directory to install to. Then browse to

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Installations

There should be a temp DIR in there and if you search through it you should find 3 .msi files corresponding to
Cable driver
connectivity solution
and pc suite.

They must be installed in that order or you may come across some errors.

From here you should be free to package / deploy through most systems.

My end solution for this application was to repackage. The repackage was fairly simple, but had to include the driver installation of 3 inf files. I did this via setupapi.dll calls. One thing to point out - the “connect to the internet” functionality of the application, where you can configure GPRS connections by default advises you need administrator privileges when the application run the app as a standard user. If you require this, this will need attention, but this lockdown was perfect for my requirements.

My last resort option to repackage Nokia PC Suite 6.5 (which is MSI based) is based on the following reason:

The application is a download from Nokia, which comes as a single compressed executable. This when launched contains an MSI based installation.

Using command line switches with the InstallShield executable, to pass variables to Windows installer did not produce the desired results. All the options for silent installations, passing a /qb, /qb+ failed. Using a /qn for a totally silent installation worked, but not in a locked down environment - needed administrator privileges, so no use to me.

Extracting the contents of the InstallShield executable was next. I got the PCSuite MSI and the ISScript9.msi dependency. Both need to be edited to allow them to function without being called from a Setup.exe. Delivering these MSI's actually worked, but the installation was not complete. There were no particular error messages, hence I did not pursue resolving the issue, but no connection types were present when the application launched.

Use just package.exe /S to install completely silent to default folders. Works for me with PC Suite 6.5.

I have succesfully made a distributable version of the 6.6 version.

Here are the steps I did:

1. Execute the installation, but do not actually install the software
2. Go to the temp directory, and voila, there are two msi files: ISScript9.msi and Nokia PC Suite.msi.
3. Copy those files to your share.
4. Open Nokia PC Suite.msi with Wise package Studio and add the following line in the table:
Table - Property: Add New Entry - ISSETUPDRIVEN = 1
Then (was necessary for me) remove the condition about Adminuser
5. Save the msi file.
6. For both files you have to make a mst file (I did that with Wise Package Studio).
7. Make sure that you first trigger the ISScript9.msi and then the Nokia PC Suite.msi.
