Command Line
To record a response file:

disk1\setup.exe -record c:\full_path_to\response.rsp

To install with the response file:

setup.exe -nowait -force -silent -responseFile c:\full_path_to\response.rsp

Note that log files are created during the installation at C:\Program Files\Oracle\Inventory\logs. These are very useful in debugging your response file.

To uninstall with the response file:

setup.exe -deinstall -nowait -force -silent -responseFile c:\full_path_to\response.rsp

Note that after uninstall, the home directory and many files will still remain. Some files and folders in the C:\Program Files\Oracle folder will also be left over. I created a post install script to clean out the installation directory, but left the Program Files\Oracle folders intact so that uninstall log files would not be lost.

Note

This is a two CD install. When I received the software to package, the CD's were copied to folders called "CD1" and "CD2". The OUI response file did not like this at all. Even by adding a LOCATION_FOR_DISK2 value in the response file, OUI coud not find it. I renamed the folders "disk1" and "disk2" and everything worked. Apparently, OUI defaults to those folder names.

Another note on the response file: when using relative paths for the FROM_LOCATION value, remember which setup.exe is actually looking for the response file. The setup.exe in the base folder only does preliminary work. The setup.exe in the "install" folder is the one looking for the response file.

The typical value will be "..\stage\products.xml"

[base folder]

+- setup.exe

+- response.rsp

+- [install]

+- setup.exe

+- [stage]

+-products.xml

Note
Fully Silent Install/Uninstall for Windows platform

I am adding details to give a fully silent install command line option, ie one with no OUI shell screen giving a running install tail

All command lines assume use of the Windows command shell for execution.

Step 1
Copy Your source files to your target location.
This should be in the form of
OD10g(or equivalent)\Disk1
\Disk2

Step 2
Record your response file

Note - there are templates in OD10g\Disk1\Stage\Response\ to check or rename if required.

Additonally check out these links for more response file information

http://download-uk.oracle.com/docs/cd/B14504_01/dl/core/install/appdx_d.htm

http://www.dbasupport.com/oracle/ora10g/response_files01.shtml

Use this command line to record the response file

C:\Path To\Disk1\setup.exe -record -destinationFile C:\Path To\Disk1\stage\Response\response.rsp

Step 3
Use the following command line to install

"C:\Path to\OD10g\Disk1\setup.exe" -silent -responseFile "C:\Path To\OD10g\Disk1\stage\Response\response.rsp" -nowait -force -noconsole

-nowait = prevents user from having to manually accept the Exit button at the end of installation

-force = allows installation into a folder already populated (ie a 10g Oracle Home)

-noconsole = suppresses the OUI shell during install, otherwise this isn't a fully silent install

Step 4
Use the following command line to uninstall

"C:\Path to\OD10g\Disk1\setup.exe" -deinstall -silent -responseFile "C:\Path To\OD10g\Disk1\stage\Response\response.rsp" -nowait -force -noconsole

(Both command lines will need to be one complete line if you're having trouble with the syntax.)

After uninstallation, I would also suggest a cleanup script or command to remove your DevSuiteHome_1 folder contents(leaves about 6mb)wherever you have set that to be. Also C:\Program Files\Oracle\Inventory\* leaves a set of install related files. The same for the following registry key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ORACLE\KEY_DevSuiteHome1
