I've been able to get this software to install very easily unattended by using various different switches, my only problem that I've found is that I cannot seem to figure out how to get the microsoft office integration to install using these switches.  I'm really just using the following:

setup.exe /qn /passive /norestart

Is there anything that you are aware of that I can use in order to enable this integratoin through command line switches?  Thank you in advance!

  • Sorry, I had originally thought I was replying to an existing thread, but must have made a new post instead. I've edited the subject line. Thanks!
  • have you tried the commands for ver 10 to see if they will work

The switches indicate (and it would be a major surprise if this weren't the case with a Microsoft application) that there is an MSI being extracted and executed. Use that and pass the relevant property (ADDLOCAL or ADDSOURCE) on the command line for the feature(s) you want to install.

And yes, a tiny cluette in your 'Subject' line will help attract more responses! :-)

If it is MS Office you are talking about, then you can create an MSP and modify any property in it and install it along with your package by placing it in Updates folder.

setup.exe /admin will open the Office application in its own tool.

  • For some reason Microsoft Mappoint 2011 allows for setup.exe /admin. I don't believe that they consider it to be an Office application apparently.

Did you ever get a proper response? There is this information in the MapPoint 2013 readme.htm file, I assume it's the same for MapPoint 2011

When installing MapPoint 2013, clearing the check box for Enable MapPoint Integration with Office will still install the feature, but it has to be enabled using each Microsoft Office application’s specific COM Add-ins dialog box. For example, to add MapPoint actions to the Microsoft Word menus and toolbars, you need to open the Microsoft Word COM Add-ins dialog and select the MapPoint Office Add-in check box.

To modify this functionality through the Setup command line, use OFFICE_INTEGRATION as the parameter. Use 0 for off and 1 for on. For example, the following command line installs MapPoint 2013 without the Office integration feature:  msiexec /i <path>\data.msi /qr OFFICE_INTEGRATION=0 

Hope this helps!

  • That was what I was looking for! The OFFICE_INTEGRATION=1 seems to have done the trick! Thank you so much for your response!
