dialog display

hi all

aside from the /qn option on the command line, how can i disable the dialogs when an app is installing?

i have to click on next 1 time and on finish at the end of the install, i want to skip those, in fact i want to skip everything but the status bar.

how to?

thank you all!

You can use /qb or /qr

qb - Basic UI . Use qb! to hide the Cancel button.

The basic UI level supports a user interface for the installation that has simple progress and error handling.

qr - Reduced UI with no modal dialog box displayed at the end of the installation.
yes i know about all those options, but i want to double-clik on the file without any questions.

i can do that very easily with wise for windows installer so i beleive i can do it in installshield no?

so no command line arguments, and no questions.

thanks again!
You want to define UILevel property in your package.
ok that looks like what i need, but how to?

i forgot, i'm a newbie.

i'm doing all my msi files with wise, but now i'm trying installshield and it looks better than wise so far.

but i'm still exploring it and i'm a bit lost on some functions.

You can go to the Property Manager view in Developer and add the property LIMITUI=1 or you can use the command line
msiexec /i "MSI File" LIMITUI=1

If the LIMITUI property is set, the user interface (UI) level used when installing the package is restricted to Basic
wow it worked.

thanks a lot!

and yes, it is a lot better than wise.
