Using response file as defaults to console user input

I run a console installation and create a response file based on user input.

If I run the console installation again, I need to read in the existing response file which will then be used as defaults to console user input.

How do I accomplish this?

Regards, Rob

Use the -f command-line switch when you run the installer to specify a response file for the installer to use.
install.exe -i console -f <path to response file>

I am using -i console -f input-response-file -r output-response-file when executing and I have no preset defaults displayed.  

Below is my response file.  Is there something wrong with what I have created?
