Sage 200 Silent Install

11/28/2014 4149 views

Has any one managed to install this silently, using msiexec.exe switches?  There's an EULA checkbox acceptance page and I think this causes it to fail, and I can't think how to get it to precheck the checkbox.

Any ideas?

Have you had a look in the property table?  There is often a property value defined for EULA acceptance, defaulting to NO. The other simple check is to open the MSI in any decentMSI  editor and have a look at the EULA checkbox acceptance dialog to see what property value is populated with the result, and set that property via a transform, or on the command line.
Bear in mind that a silent MSI installation does not run the UI dialog at all, so presetting the property value is the best course.  However, did you check the vendor documentation, as they may have already specified information on silent deployment in a readme file or an installation document.
