IBM SPSS 25 not Silent

01/24/2019 1546 views

So I am trying to install SPSS 25 silently and it does install with the switches below but it isn't silent there is a pop-up during the install about Python compiling a bunch of stuff.  Anyone else seeing this, is there any way to make it truly silent (other then INSTALLPYTHON=0, excluding Phyton)?

msiexec.exe /i "IBM SPSS Statistics 25.msi" /qn /norestart /L*v spss25log.txt LICENSETYPE="Network" LSHOST="server1.domain.com~server2.domain.com~server3.domain.com" DISABLE_COMMUTE=1 COMPANYNAME="Company"

What would be wrong about not installing their flavour of Python and just installing the same version but directly from python.org as a separate installation?

You need to add the arg INSTALLPYTHON=1 after your silent switches. Here is the command that I use:

msiexec /i IBM-SPSS-Statistics-25.msi /passive INSTALLPYTHON=1 AUTHCODE=123456789
My installs are silent except for the progress bar, which is a result of using /passive instead of /qn. This arg for Python works for v26 as well. Notably, I am using license codes and not an authorization server like you are.
I found that info on page 3 of the SPSS Authorized User License Administrator Guide

Hope this helps if you are still seeking an answer a year later :)
