MS Visual Studio Enterprise 2015 Update 2

it has been quite a hazzle to install or uninstall Visual Studio Enterprise on a Win7 machine.

So here is it is.

Install:
\\ShareName\vs_Enterprise.exe" /AdminFile "\\ShareName\DeploymentConfig.xml" /ProductKey XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX /passive /norestart
Within the deploymentConfig.xml modify the the line to 

<BundleCustomizations TargetDir="C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0" NoCacheOnlyMode="yes" NoWeb="yes" NoRefresh="yes" SuppressRefreshPrompt="yes" Feed="default" />

Even after using the switches /full /NoWeb /NoRefresh it would not allow you to do the full installation.

Uninstall:
"C:\ProgramData\Package Cache\{675a5109-38d6-406c-9e75-d0e922f87a58}\vs_enterprise.exe" /uninstall /force /passive


Using this as the uninstall string as the removes the whole application as a bundle.

If you are using anything before Update 2 it would ask you to update the application before you try to uninstall it. So get the latest version of the application and then do the install and then the uninstall.

IBM iAccess for Windows 7.1

1) Extracted the setup.exe by using the following command.

2) Setup.exe /a to a location that you want. This would extract the language pack also, something like MRI2XXX(not really sure of the number.

2)      Create a transform to cwbinstall.msi if needed. If not just leave it alone.

3)      Then modify the setup.ini file

3) In the commandline area to something like this.


4)       Then wrap the whole thing with the command line

setup.exe /s /v"/qn"

 

6) When you run this is it a silent install. But there is a Microsoft C++ 2005 redistributable that you need to install to install the service pack.

5)       Reboot the machine.

6)       If you have a service pack that you need to install then so the same thing like you did to the main installation. But there is a Microsoft C++ 2005 redistributable that you need to install to install the service pack. And do this commandline

9) image32\setup.exe /s /v"/qn"

7)      That should install the whole thing.

Deploying through KACE or SCCM 2007/2012:

Not Really sure how KACE works. But you need to create a task sequence in SCCM 2007/12(worked fine for both the SCCM's), which would do the following.

1)      Reboot the machine no matter what first.

2)      If there are any older versions remove them. ( skip if it a new machine install)

3)      Reboot the machine again.

4)      Install the main IBM iAccess Package first along with the Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable.

5)      Reboot the machine

6)      Install the service pack.

7)      Reboot the machine again after that. That should take care of the whole install.

 

Hopefully this helps you man. It has been working great for me. No issues none so far.

Axe 4.0.0 silent installation.

For installing Axe

Install the software manually and then  get the files aksllmtp.exe, hasplms.exe from System32.

extract the msi from the EXE and then use the following commandline to install the software.

MsiExec.exe /i AxeSetup.msi AXESETUP=/nohasp /qn to make it a silent install.

Then run the following commandlines

hasplms.exe -install

hasplms.exe –start  

which would start the license manager

 

For uninstall do the same thing.

MsiExec.exe /X AxeSetup.msi AXESETUP=/nohasp /qn. Where you can silently uninstall the product.

IBM Rational Functional Tester

I think almost everyone knows how to create a package for IBM functional Tester. But these are the basic things that you need to do while creating a package for that .

 

1) Create a package that would install the IBM Installation Manager.( Dont worry about the upgrade of Installation managew, becoz the installation would automatically upgrade the package).

2) Create the .xml files for how the installation should happen. The xml file would contain the location of the repository sources and the where the license files are located.

For silent installation this the command line.

 C:\Program Files\IBM\Installation Manager\eclipse\IBMIM.exe --launcher.ini silent-install.ini -input "U:\responsefile.xml"

U: drive that is right. U need to map the drive for the installation to happen. The source directory should be mapped first for the installation to happen.
