Hello, I trying to install RWD InfoPak in silent mode, and this fails to install, with this log:

**************** 12/22/2009 12:02:37 ****************
RWD Info Pak 5.70 setup.exe was run with the following command line parameters: /S /M= D:\DEV\APPS\RWD_INFOPAKV5.8\SOURCE\SETUP.INI
from location D:\DEV\APPS\RWD_InfopakV5.8\Source by aceadmin.
WARNING! The following setup.ini variables contain values with invalid formatting:

Thanks in advanced.

can you run and check the command line is working or not through cmd.exe?
if command line work fine, may be somthing problem in setup.ini or in squence of PRODUCTID.

As those INI entries are in all upper-case, I strongly suspect that the stub utlimately extracts and executes an MSI. I'd run the set-up stub normally and, when you see the first screen, normally a 'Welcome' dialog, search your ROOTDRIVE drive for a new MSI. These normally get extracted to the %TEMP% folder but some vendors have taken to using folders beneath %APPDATA%. If you find an MSI, copy it to a safe place, renaming it to something sensible along the way. Then you can either create a transform or set the relevant properties via the command line when calling MSIExec.

I check the PRODUCTID, it work fine in the product, if I install manually. I use this in uppercase and hypens, and no spaces between characters.

I check if the installer put an .msi in %APPDATA% or %TEMP%, but this not put any package in this locations, I try to find in the hard disk, but no msi package have in a disk. The manual installation works fine, the problem is when I try to install unattended via setup.ini

I got it working with:

/S /M=setup.ini as the command line switches

Inside our setup.ini...

MAINDIR=C:\Program Files\InfoPak

You may want to check for stray spaces, carriage returns, etc that might be throwing it off.

Underneath the wrapper is an MSI so you can find your product's GUID and run MSIEXEC against it.

msiexec.exe /qn /x{64F3B15C-24C7-4B2B-9B72-65CCBBD7F06B} /lie %WIN%\Packagelogs\%LOGFOLDER%\Uninstall.log /norestart for the version of InfoPak that I did (5.80)..

Hello, I need your help.
I'm making a package with the FireFox 3.5.5, and managed to silence, and do not appear on IE migration wizard, and check that no updates, not to be the default browser. But, I need to import data from IE to Firefox, without user intervention, for which I need a command line, you can not find on the Internet.
Someone can help me? With either command line or a script, I did capture with InstallShiled.

Thank you.
