Hi i want to Install,Uninstall,and Configure Embassy Trust Suite v Silently i.e with silent switches.
Since i have a setup.exe(InstallShield Setup) when we install it first check for hardware dependency i.e Dell TPM,then it calls one msi which do some configuration,this all we can record with /r switch which captures the configuration we have done.Then setup.exe.Calls Installer.exe which itself calls some 15 msi's,and this Installer.exe is not an InstallShield setup,so we tried finding silent switches for this but are not successfull in that.

So wanted to know if anybody has done this application before or knows the silent switches for it to Install Uninstall and configure the same.

Thanks in Advance.

Why not simply extract all the MSIs and run them in sequence using the silent switch for MSIExec? Remember afterwards, though, to:

- use a lightweight snapshot tool e.g. InstallWatch to take a 'Before' snapshot
- rename the various 'Uninstall' registry entries, to avoid the WI engine "seeing" that the products are already installed
- run the vendor install over the top of yours
- take an 'After' snapshot
- incorporate any relevant changes into a transform applied to one of the MSIs or into a separate, newly-created MSI which runs at the end.

Hi VBScab
Really Appreciate your suggestion to my question but actually setup(installer.exe) interacts with the Dell TPM i.e in BIOS,then it installs those 15 to 25 msi's.so we thought its better to install with silent switches.

So wanted to know if you guys know some additional silent switches which we can apply to setup.exe,so that it will install that and also it will able to do configuration as well.
