Silent install for Visio standard 2007

12/19/2008 27592 views
Hi Experts,
Once again i need your suggestioons.

I am working on Visio Standard 2007, customized it using Office Customization Tool (OCT). With this the installation is working perfect, but I need to do a silent install and uninstall. I tried different switches to make it a silent install and it is not working.
I appreciate if some one could suggest me what need to do to install and uninstall Viso Standard 2007 silently.

Thanks
WEK

if those don't work you need to explain exactly what command line you used and what error if any you got.
why so secretive? we can't read your mind.

You really need to do an administrative installation which will create a .msp file. Run the setup.exe /admin and an administration installation will run allowing you to customize the installation. You then can run the command line something like this (path to installation)VisioStd2007\setup.exe /adminfile (path to .msp)\updates\visiostd07.msp. Microsoft recommends you put the .msp file in a subdirectory of Visio call Updates. This will run a completely silent installation of Visio.

Not to be pedantic but the level of UI is determined by admin tool and the config.xml file, just running the admin tool and generating the MSP won't make it silent. The xml element looks like this:

<Display Level="none" CompletionNotice="no" SuppressModal="yes" AcceptEula="yes" />

Hello,

with the above response I have tested the Visio Standard 2007 and it installed fine. It is not a complete silent install but there is no user interaction.

I also tried to do a silent uninstall with the uninstall string from the following registry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\....
Msiexec /x {Product code}
It does a silent uninstall but it is rebooting after the uninstall. i tried different switches to suppress the reboot after uninstall but the reboot is always taking place.

how can i suppress the reboot at uninstall.?

Enable MSI logging. That should highlight the culprit for you.

I vaguely recall one release of an MS package from a while ago which rebooted on uninstall because it removed a shortcut from the Startup folder. Priceless!

How was the SETUP_REBOOT property set when you installed? Check this out for how it works:
