Hello,

I am facing issue in silent installation of application "Visual Studio professional 2008".I have tried following procedure for silent installation ::

1. Creation of Visual Studio unattend .ini file
Command :: \setup\Setup.exe /createunattend "C:\Filename.ini"

2. Running Unattended Setup
Command :: \setup\Setup.exe /q /unattendfile "C:\Filename.ini"

Still no luck :(
Do I need to do any other modifications in file "Filename.ini"?
Please advice.

Thanks in advance !!

Lee,

first of all, have you seen this entry in the Package KB? It seems to suggest a different approach based on the MSI files, and making a transform ontop of that.

Secondly, for troubleshooting, we're gonna have to dig abit deeper. Assuming you made a logfile somewhere during your installation (if you didn't, try to do so), have a look if it can tell you at what point during the installation something goes wrong...

Hello,

Yes I have tried creating Transform as mentioned in Package KB.
But with that approach it installs only MS Visual Studio Pro 2008 and not complete suite.
I need to do Full Feature installation including MS SQL Server, MS SDK, etc with MS Visual Studio Pro 2008.
Is there any other way to install complete suite silently ?

Thanks in advance !!

Please post your filename.ini, as well as post your triggering script. You can manually trigger that command from cmd line, and check that is it working or not.

Does this not cover what you need?

It doesn't mention professional but the supporting switches should remain the same:

"setup.exe /q /full - this will perform a silent full installation of VS 2008. This is the equivalent of running VS 2008 setup using setup UI and selecting the Full install type radio button."
