Command Line
If you're using a batch script then setting a variable for the location of your files makes sense given the number of commands you have here;

set pkgloc=\\yourserver\nvivodeployshare

Most machines will have .net 2.0 framework by now anyway;

if not exist "c:\winnt\microsoft.net\framework\v2.*" start /wait %pkgloc%\dotnetfx.exe /q:a /c:"install.exe /q"

Installs SQL Express;

start /wait %pkgloc%\SQLEXPR /qn ADDLOCAL=ALL SQLAUTOSTART=1 INSTANCENAME="QSRNVivo8" SQLCOLLATION="Latin1_General_BIN"

Installs Crystal Reports;

start /wait msiexec /i "%pkgloc%\CRRedist2005_x86" /qn

The next part isn't in the install package but fixed our NVivo 7 installation - files available from the main InstallShield site;

start /wait msiexec /i "%pkgloc%\ISScript1150.msi" /qn

Installs NVivo;

start /wait msiexec /i "%pkgloc%\QSR NVivo 8.0.msi" /qn PIDKEY="yourlicensekeywithouthyphens"

The last bit requires you to make an xml file as set out in the Network Administrators Guide - gets the software activated;

c:\progra~1\qsr\nvivo8~1\nvivo.exe -a %pkgloc%\My-Activation.xml

Note
This install is very similar to the NVivo 7 notes on this site. Basically you need to run through a full install on a test machine to get the files from the single install file.

Worth noting is that the installer now requires Quicktime 7 and Windows Media Player 11. Packages for both inside the main installer.

Start the main installer (setup.exe) and open your temp folder to scoop up the file as the installer extracts them. Best way to do this is to run 'explorer %temp%' from the Run prompt and then organize folders by date. WAIT until the NVivo component has been fully extracted towards the end of the install process (there's a lot of components that come before this) and then copy the entire contents to a share for deployment.

Note you will need the above method for getting the Service Pack files later.

Finally - to make things simpler later - in your deployment copy of the install files, move the individual files out of the sub-folders so all the files are at the same folder level. Now look at the Commands tab on this page for silent commands that worked for me.

Command Line
The SP1 update for NVivo 8 contains a Microsoft update to Windows Installer 3.1 v2;

"\\yourserver\nvivodeployshare\sp1\windowsinstaller-kb893803-x86.exe" /quiet /norestart

Then the update itself;

msiexec /p "\\yourserver\nvivodeployshare\sp1\nvivo 8.0 sp1.msp" /qn /norestart SHORTFILENAMES=TRUE

Note that I have put the service pack files in a separate sub-folder to the files included in the main NVivo deployment - there were some .ini files with the same names. The 'SHORTFILENAMES' command isn't documented anywhere by QSR - that's from a suggestion elsewhere on AppDeploy.com - but it worked first time for me.

Note
on Windows 7 you may have problems with permissions to install using the extracted .msi, this isn't a problem using the Install shield setup.exe. Fix it with the following reg key set.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Layers]
"C:\\<path to .msi>\\QSR NVivo 8.0.msi"="# RUNASADMIN MSIAUTO"
