Hello.... I got an application Tower's Watson Emblem(GA) 4.2. The source consist of an Launcher.exe which extracts two MSI's which are also included in the source - A Towers Watson Licence Client.msi and Towers Watson Emblem.msi. The first msi acts as a prereq  to the main Emblem.msi. The packaging 

May I know how to proceed with this application?

Or is there any silent installation command for the .exe itself?

Suggestions appreciated!! :)

Create log file for the installation (With /qn).. use WILogUtl.exe to know what is causing error..

You need to see the log and see where it is failing.. Search for "Return Value 3"  in the log and you will get the error there.

If it is Installshield based application the run it with ISSETUPDRIVEN=1 in command line.

Run the .exe with /? or /help. That usually gives the unattended install switches.

What if you run the MSI's in order? Does it install your software?

  • Ya I had run the exe with /? but it doesnt not have any silent switches .
    The MSI's install the software when run in order but they fail to install silently on the machine where dongle is connected. (Note : I had used /qn as a silent switch which fails and the application gets installed by qb! )
  • Log the installation with with msiexec /i "YourInstaller.msi" /qn /l*v c:\install.log
    What does the /qn switch fail on?
