About: InstallAware installer.

I am currently working on a package which is created by InstallAware. So frustrate that there is not even a help message in the vendor's installer. Does anybody here know the build-in command line argument of InstallAware ? Any comment is appreciate!

I found this question by searching for another issue. I think I can answer this if someone will need it.

The command line for an InstallAware setup in silent mode is something like that:

setup.exe /s LANGUAGE=German [Parameter=Value] /L=<PathToLogFile>

Language is something like that:

German|English|French|Portuguese (Portugal)|Russian  etc.

Er...isn't InstallAware a packaging tool for creating MSIs? If I'm right, then normal MSI command line arguments apply.

Actually, it seems that the tool may allow packagers to create custom command line arguments (see here for details). If that's the case, you have no choice but to contact the vendor and ask them what the custom arguments are.

Thanks for your quick reply. VBScab. I had already checked the URL you provided by using google before I open this new thread here. This executable is created by InstallAware. I tried so many ways to extract the arguments include procexp.exe. But still no lucky. Seems I have to get to the vendor for their custom arguments. Thanks again.
