SAS 9.3 installation is failing in quiet mode
I have created the response file for SAS 9.3 application using "-record" option.
Now I am installing the setup using the created response file... But the installation is faling.
In GUI mode, it is installing fine, but in quiet mode it is failing... I am not able to see the log files as well....
C:\Program Files\SASHOME\InstallMisc\Installlogs" folder is empty....
I am not able to see any error messages in evenviewer as well....
Below are the commands which I used to install the setup in silent mode:
setup.exe -wait -quiet -responsefile "C:\Programdata\SAS93_Install\Sasinstall.properties"
setup.exe -provision -noreboot -quiet -wait -nomsupdate -responsefile "C:\Programdata\SAS93_Install\Sasinstall.properties"
Below is the response file which I used:

Can body please help on this.....
Finally, I found the command to get the log file in one particular location that is
setup.exe -wait -quiet -provision -responsefile "path of responsefile" -datalocation C:\Test -loglevel 2
With the above command, i saw the log files. I read the logfiles and found the problem why the setup is failing in quiet mode.
It is acutally looking for some regional settings. The response file which I gave is not having those settings... So i have added those settings and triggered the silent installation. It is working fine now...
But I am not able to see the dependency appliations location(Runtime components applications).... Please help to find those apps in the setup folder.....
Check for the product folder in your media, if you have the product folder then all the pre-req's will be installed from that folder itself...
do check for the sequnce in which Pre-req (VC++ Dist ) are getting installed from the eventvwr.
and for silent installation pls check if the below command works as it worked for me.
"%Path to setup.exe%\setup.exe" -wait -quiet -noreboot -responsefile "%Path to Response file%\response.properties" -skipadmincheck
There is a long discussion of SAS 9.2 here which I used before.
On the other hand, you may want to append the commands with this: -quietstatus -loglevel 1
Also, make sure you deploy the Prerequisites prior to the SAS silent installs. You can see them during the GUI mode installs which are mostly MS Runtime Components and Dot Net.
Those pre-requisites are installed through media only and are not downloaded from website.
I have checked the log files....Mainly i am able to see one log file (IT_DATE_Time.txt) which is having information about Runtime components, dot net etc...
But it is not having informatin about the media location from which it is installing those applications.
Can anybody know about those applications locations(Run time components) in the setup folder?
