Run Suite installer in Silent mode

Hi ,

We created a suite installer which is having 20 Installscript MSI projects exes as packages, we need to install/upgrade this suite installer in silent mode.
We are running the suite installer through command prompt using MySuite.exe /silent command, but we can see the UI related to those packages, though Suite installer related dialogs are not shown.
Can anybody suggest how to run(fresh installation/upgrade) the Suite installer in Silent mode?

Thank in advance

Sounds like you need to propagate the silent switch setting through to the InstallScript MSI projects via the package MSI EXE command line. You can use a suite property to do that and set it appropriately.

The suite property "ISSilentInstall" should help you set the command line value correctly. Actually not sure if this is available in IS 2014 - I use 2015.

Hi Hysteresis,

We have converted our projects to IS 2015 now, can you please brief us what needs to be done? What is the property value(for ISSilentInstall) we need to set and pass it in exe command line?

Thanks in advance

You can add the parameters to each packages EXE Silent Command line, in the packages Install section.
Its under the packages Operation>Install>EXE Silent Command Line section

Re: Run Suite installer in Silent mode

I think you want to run it with the Silent command switch. "/s"

The documentation states to use "/s" for Installscript MSI projects but you must FIRST create the response file.

Hi,

I have created the .iss file and added that file in support directory and passing /s /f1"[SETUPSUPPORTDIR]\Setup.iss" in EXE Silent Command Line setting .

But the .iss file created while fresh installation does not work while upgrade and .iss file created while upgrade does not work for fresh installation , so this is not working for us, we don't want to change .iss file everytime because we are not sure whether it is the fresh installation or its an upgrade in production.

Re: Run Suite installer in Silent mode

The .iss files where a major headache for me as well so i moved all my projects to Basic MSI projects and that solves ALL the problems with silent installs. Might be the only option you have.

We can't move our projects to Basic MSI projects , we have lot of installscript code involved, we need to use Installscript MSI projects only
