I'm looking for help in order to do a silent install for a program called Inspiration. I have checked the software kb forums and didn't find any unattended switches, has anyone here successfully install this program silently

I found out today that there are no switches with Inspiration 9 install. Tech Support at Inspiration sent me this. Hope it helps.

Thank you for your email. Our installer does not support silent
install switches. We do have an .msi for Inspiration 9 that I'd be
happy to share with you. Would that be helpful?

Though I don't anticipate any troubles with the .msi, you should know
that configurations different from my testing environment have a small
chance of showing unusual behavior. Please do let me know if anything
unusual does happen in the update process or after it is updated.

To obtain the Inspiration 9 IE msi, please download the the following
zip file from our server:

After you have extracted the files from the zip, please use the
following instructions:

-To place our application to a central location so the MSI can copy
the files to the local client, do a standard network install of
Inspiration 9 IE (as outlined in the volume license install
instructions) Our MSI will simply copy the files from the server to
the client, resulting in a local install.

- Copy the Inspiration.msi and ideploy.ini into the install directory
(the same directory as the Insp9.exe)

- Edit the ideploy.ini with a text editor and change the SourceDir
variable to point at your network installation (\\server\share\appdir)

- Now point your network deployment tool (such as Zen Works) at the
Inspiration.msi file in the same way you normally do. I would
recommend assigning the msi on the machine level, as opposed to the
user level for best results.

You can create respond files for unattended silent installations of VISE installer.

Step 1: Create respond file (like InstallShield installer)

setup.exe -r: settings.ini

Step 2: Launch installation silently with respond file

setup.exe -p: settings.ini


Hope this will be helpful...

For 9.2.3 I did the following: 

First generate the response file with 
setup -r settings.ini

If you have a site license, enter this info when it runs the first time. This will put a file called "Inspiration NOS" in the install directory which contains your serial info. Then zip this settings.ini file along with the "Inspiration NOS" file and installer. Then run the following: 

xcopy "Inspiration NOS" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Inspiration 9\"
start /wait setup.exe -p settings.ini
ping -n 11>nul
taskkill /IM Insp9.exe /F

Where ping just allows the program time to launch, then taskkill kills it (since the installer automatically starts it after its done installing).
