Scripted Install with Microsoft Report Viewer v8 Post Installation Task

Referencing http://www.itninja.com/software/microsoft/microsoft-report-viewer-redistributable-2005/2-2143;

"Launch EXE as per normal. While installation is stalled at welcome screen, go to your %TEMP% directory and look for a sub-directory called IXP*.TMP. This is where the files are extracted to. Copy the files elsewhere and lauch MSIEXEC with the ADDEPLOY=1 property."

In the IXP000.TMP file, do I use the install.exe or the ReportViewer.msi? What would the complete command line be? 


thanks a bunch!

I'm not familiar with this app, but since msiexec installs are pretty straightforward, give this a shot:

msiexec.exe /i reportviewer.msi ADDEPLOY=1 /qn

Personally, I would put this in a batch file, copy the batch file into the same folder as the install files and setup the postinstall screen to use "call batchfile.bat" for the parameters.

Instead of running and extracting it in temp you can unzip the source exe using 7Zip tool.
