4.2.1.1 To create a response file for a scripted silent installation

 

Before you run a scripted silent installation, you must use the Dashboard Design or Presentation Design

 

media to create a response.ini file.

 

1. Run setup.exe -w C:\response.ini from the installation media.

 

The interactive installation wizard appears.

 

2. Proceed through the wizard, selecting your installation options. Follow the instructions in the “To

 

install Dashboard Design or Presentation Design interactively” section.

 

3. On the "Start installation" page, click Next, and then click OK.

 

The installation program writes your installation options to the response.ini file, and closes.

 

You can now open C:\response.ini in a text editor to review your installation options.

For guys who gets the Runtime Error while starting SAP BusinessObjects Dashboard, you will need folder permissions for the targetdir. In the www u will find the solution to start SAP BusinessObjects Dashboard with "Run as administrator", but this is one crazy way for deployment :)

With the right folder permissions, this error is gone !
