hi all

This is my first post on this site, so sorry if this is the wrong place.
I am currently trying to create a .iss file for the deployment of Sage Accounts 2011 using the following cmd
C:\>c:\SageInstall\install\setup.exe -r -f1e:\responsefile.iss

I have copied the install files from the cd to the following folder c:\SageInstall and creating the .iss file to the e: drive (usb)

When i run the above cmd the Sage install takes place however no .iss file is created. Not sure what i'm doing wrong.

All help would be greatfull

Thanks

try this command line.
C:\>c:\SageInstall\install\setup.exe /r /f1"e:\responsefile.iss"

also take a look in windows\system32
I think that is where it will drop a setup.iss by default if no switches are used.

I hope you have used "/" not this "\".

Try following

C:\SageInstall\install:\>setup.exe /r /f1"e:\responsefile.iss"

It is a installshield package?

Following link will be helpful :
Link1
Look for article section of appdeploy.com - Installshield Setup Parameters

Every Sage product I've dealt with so far extracts and executes one or MSIs. Use that/those. True, they are a vision to behold - some an object lesson in how NOT to package - but you'll be able to custimise with transform, apply whatever arguments you want and so on.

On your packaging VM:

- clear out your %TEMP% and %SystemRoot%\TEMP folders
- start Setup.EXE with no arguments.
- when you see the first screen - normally a 'Welcome' screen - look for an MSI in %TEMP%, %SystemRoot%\TEMP or a new folder beneath %AppData%
- use the resulting MSI (copied - and renamed something sensible if necessary)
