Silent mode won't work from the c:\temp folder on Win7. Had me chasing my tail for hours.
The install does not allow relative paths for response file. So giving %~dp0 in the command file would not install the application. Its better to copy the .rsp file locally and run from there.
A simple script for deploy with SCCM 2007:
Dim oShell, sFolder, sCmd, iReturn
Set oShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
sFolder = Left(WScript.ScriptFullName, Len(WScript.ScriptFullName) - Len(WScript.ScriptName))
set oEnv = oShell.Environment("PROCESS")
oEnv("SEE_MASK_NOZONECHECKS") = 1
sCmd = sFolder & "win32\setup.exe -force -silent -waitforcompletion -noconsole -nowelcome -responseFile " & sFolder & "win32\response\response.rsp"
iReturn = oShell.Run(sCmd, 0, true)
Set oShell = Nothing
From the command line run setup.exe -help to view all available commands. Create a response file for an automated install.
I handled the 11G package with the ODT plugin package by doing a full repackage into an MSI. It was not easy, and was a long and drawn out process, however the benefits were fantastic. All our oracle apps are now packaged and we don't have to deal with the Oracle installer failing and stupidly updating files and registry entries.
