Read parameters passed to MSI


I want to pass some custom parameters to my MSI installation file created with InstallShield 2013 LE. As an example I used installer class described in the following link:

When I pass arguments to installation ( for example: "Windows Agent.msi" the methods are called but I cannot see my passed parameter "Email"

Could you please guide how to read arguments properly.

Thanks in advance

You are trying passing the the "Email" as a property to the MSI, but have not passing the property to the to the installer class.
I do not believe the field to do this is available in limited edition.

Also, property being passed to the MSI in the command line has to be public.
