Hi RamuramSudheer,

Do the following steps to install in silent mode ?

1) Run the Essential Studio Setup.exe and then click the next button in the UI wizard. It will extract the MSI files into the "TEMP" folder.

2) After extracting the files then the another wizard appears. Please cancel the UI wizard and close all the wizards.

3) Open the run command and type the %temp%. It will open the "Temp" folder. You can find the MSI files in any one of the folder.

4) Copy and place all the MSI and zip files to your folder location like Ex: D:\temp

5) Open the command prompt in administrator mode and pass the following arguments

msiexec /i "MSI file path\EssentialStudio.msi" TEMPPATH="folder path of MSI and cab files" ADDLOCAL="ALL" PIDKEY="product unlock key" SAMPLEPATH="C:\Syncfusion\" /qb


msiexec /i "D:\Temp\EssentialStudio.msi" TEMPPATH="D:\Temp" ADDLOCAL="ALL" PIDKEY="product unlock key" SAMPLEPATH="C:\Syncfusion\" /qb

Please let me know if this helps you.

Let us look into the crystal ball to see if we can tell which of the two silent switches you tried...no, we can't see clearly enough, you're going to have to tell us.

This to me smells like an installer extracting an MSI. Especially the screenshot that says "Extracting the Syncfusion Essential Studio Windows Installer Package". Have a little search for MSI files in your %TEMP% folder.

Good call, Pieter. I missed that reference and was put off by the INF stuff.

@OP, if there's no MSI in %TEMP%, check for one in a new folder beneath %AppData%. Lots of vendors are using that location now, for reasons best known to them.

The INF sample file and the /VERYSILENT or /SILENT switches smells like a INNO-based setup all over.
The /VERYSILENT switch is more silent then the /SILENT one ;)

What did you try and what was not silent?

To create the INF file run: setup.exe /SAVEINF="C:\setup.inf"

For the whole list of switches have a look at: http://unattended.sourceforge.net/InnoSetup_Switches_ExitCodes.html
