Hi guys,
I have an MSI that came from a vendor, and I need to find the names of the different features/component within the MSI, so I can use them in a command line.

When I manually install the file, I have the choice of selecting different features/components I want to install.

If I use a command line to do a silent install - and I use ADDLOCAL=ALL in the command line, it installs ALL the features.

I know that I can install individual, or only some selected features by using the commandline, but the documentation I have is for the previous version of the MSI, and is invalid for this version. (eg. ADDLOCAL=FAX,VM) to install just the fax and voice mail components.

There is no updated documentation on the vendors website, and getting in touch with them directly is difficult.

I've downloaded ORCA, and I've opened the MSI.

Does anybody know of a table, or property I can look for, that will tell me the valid names of the features that I can use when I use the ADDLOCAL property?

Thanks in advance!

Check for INSTALLLEVEL property value, depending on which the features with level value less than or equal to will get installed.

Take a log while installing the msi, and find in the log the value for the ADDLOCAL property.Those will be the features installed by your application.

INSTALLLEVEL property will also tell you the which features are getting installed, but there may be a case that during installation the INSTALLLEVEL value is getting chnaged and a certain features wont install eventhough the INSTALLLEVEL property indicates something else . So better option is checking through log.
