Hi @Sivagurunathan,

Thank you for your post.

The documentation at the following link:

mentions the following:

InstallScript MSI and InstallScript Silent Installations

For InstallScript MSI and InstallScript projects, you need to record a response file that records the end-user interaction. This response file is passed to Setup.exe so that the installation can be run. The traditional silent installation works almost exactly the same as regular installations. It follows the same script logic as the regular installation.

If you need to install an InstallScript MSI installation without using Setup.exe, you can use the MSI silent mode.

This leads me to conclude that recording a response file is absolutely required and nonnegotiable for running a silent InstallScript-driven install.

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns. Thanks!
