Silently install something old - CrystalUpdate.exe
04/24/2015 2932 views
Have been asked to install an older program via SCCM 2012 but can't figure out how to silently install it.
It's called "CrystalReport.exe" and as the name suggests it's part of a Crystal Reports install.
It looks like it's been created within Installshield, and it look fairly old.
I've tried the following to silently install it:
- CrystalReport.exe /r (to create a response file) didn't work
- CrystalReport.exe /s didn't work
- CrystalReport.exe /quiet didn't work
- CrystalReport.exe /passive didn't work
The install itself it fairly straight forward, just next next finish so there isn't any custom inputs.
Anyone any suggestions?

To silently install I needed to run the CrystalUpdate.exe, browse to %temp% and found a temporary folder with another folder named Disk1 in it.
Disk1 contains the actual setup files. I copied the Disk1 folder to my desktop and ran setup.exe /r from there. It created setup.iss in C:\Windows. I then copied setup.iss back into the Disk1 folder and ran setup.exe /s /v/qn. Voila!
