From what i can remember SAP has its own inbuilt Administrative Customization Tool whereby you run the admin executable, enter all required configuration and it churns out a deployable executable.  We would then add this to our installation script which would incorporate company standards, etc.  
Check that you have all the source media you need to complete the job.
There should also be an accompanying .pdf file explaining how to create an admin executable and what switches to use, etc

  • I can't find the pdf file for the SAP

Clear %temp%, event viewer Application logs.
Run the setup.exe
It will extract the msi's in %temp%, monitor the event viewer Application logs, it will have the location of the msi install and the switches as well.
Create transform for those extracted msi's and go for install and uninstall with the msi switches.

  • I haven't found one
    • My comment wasn't about the PDF. It is a link to a myriad of posts and articles about packaging and deploying BO products.

      Actually, it comes to mind that, in my experience, most BO products are ultimately packaged in to MSIs so run the EXE until you see the 'Welcome' screen and then, keeping that displayed on-screen, browse your machine for new MSIs. These will typically be in folders in %TEMP% but increasingly, you'll find them in %AppData%\[Vendor_name]\[Application_Name] or similar.

      Once you have the MSIs, you can create transforms for them and use the normal arguments against MSIEXEC.EXE to silence the installation.
