Hello everybody,

I have to find how to install this application in silence!

Start the msi installer "HEC-GeoHMS_10.0_Setup.msi"
Keep two files in the folder : C:\Documents and Settings\%userUsingForTheInstallation%\Local Settings\Temp
- one in the folder {CAF2499D-AF9F-493F-834D-6C530302F047} -> ArcHydroTools.msi
- the second one -> 249ae9.msi

Execute : msiexec /i "%folder%\ArcHydroTools.msi" /qb!
and after : msiexec /i "%folder%\249ae9.msi" /qb!

Successfully installation in silent

You could create a Package KB article for this application, other people will be able to find it easily then.

Just a point of note, /qb will run with a basic user interface in most cases - it may be that these MSIs in question have no dialogues so it works. The correct switch to use would be /qn

Have you had any success with this? I've been working on it for two days. I have extracted all the files within the package and can not for the life of me get the Arc Hydro Tools install. ESRI doesn't have the version which is required for this installation If we can get the Arc Hydro Tools v2.0.1.125 then we should be able to get a working silent installation. Anyone have success with this or knows where they embedded the Arc Hydro install? I've extracted everything and cannot find another installer within the MSI.

Any help would be great. At this point I'm giving up on the package and manually installing for the ones requesting... it would be less time consuming that way. I know on the 9.3 version they did not embed the Arc Hydro software so it was cake to install silently.

BTW, even using the msiexed /a software.msi TARGETDIR=c:\whatever /qn doesn't get the files extracted that are needed. I've used UniExtract, 7zip and IZarc with no luck.

Suggestions welcomed!
