Hi everyone,  trying to deploy MPM 3.4 (Vendor: Pinnacle Ent Management Specialists) silently so searched for some related documentation in the website and online but very insufficient info :((( if anybody has ideas how to push it silently please share here.

I really appretiate your help


Answer Summary:
extract the main setup.exe (including some other files beside) from %temp% and create a response file (setup.iss) with the configurations needed and write a script like this "%~dp0setup.exe" /s /f1"%~dp0setup.iss" /f2"C:\temp\mpm.log" To create a response file use this "\your setup.exe" /r /f1"your location wer to create\setup.iss"

Answer this question or Comment on this question for clarity



have u tried the usual silent switches like /q /s
if this didnt work, see if the setup is created in installshield and try to create a response file(.rsp) out of it. Then pass this .rsp file to setup.exe. Your application will install silently

Some software sets up it's installer in your temp folder by decompressing the base install file there.  flush your temp folder, start the installer and step into it watching your temp folder.  You may get lucky, I have been able to harvest the real installer from the temp and create a silent install using the msi or exe that decompressed from the orginal exe.

  • another thing you can try is to install the program then look at c:\windows\installer for a msi with the time stamp of the time of install and use that.

  • Sometimes you have to get creative. There are usualy at 3 ways to anything in windows. Use whatever tricks you can to save you time.
  • You should post that in the software library for others to find.
  • sure but we don't have that in our repository...
  • That is a good question! How do you add a new software to the library? Why Don't you ask so you get the points?
