Unattended MS Visual Studio 2008 Pro

8 posts in this topic

To deploy Visual Studio 2008 in unattended mode, you must create the unattend file for the Visual Studio 2008 installation.

You must create a unique .INI unattend file for each target operation system. For example, unattend file created for Windows XP would not be usable for Windows 2003 and vise versa.

To do this, follow these steps:

Step 1: Create Visual Studio unattended .ini file

Insert the Visual Studio 2008 DVD and ignore the autorun message.

From the Start menu, choose Run.

Type the following:

<DVD-ROM drive>:\setup\Setup.exe /createunattend <path to VS2008 INI-file>

D:\setup\setup.exe /createunattend c:\VS2008_deployment.ini

On the Options page, select the features intended to be deployed, and then click Save Settings

Step 2: Create MSDN Studio unattended .ini file

From Run.

Type the following:

<DVD-ROM drive>:\msdn\setup\Setup.exe /createunattend <path to MSDN INI-file>

D:\msdn\setup\setup.exe /createunattend c:\MSDN2008_deployment.ini

On the Options page, select the features intended to be deployed, and then click Save Settings

Run Unattended Setup

Step 1: Run unattended Visual Studio setup on a client machine

Verify that Visual Studio 2008 is available on the network.

From Run.

Type the following:

\\<servername>\VS2008\Setup\setup.exe /unattendfile <path to VS2008 INI-file>

\\server\VS2008\Setup\setup.exe /unattendfile \\server\VS2008\VS2008_deployment.ini

Step 2: Run unattended MSDN Library setup on a client machine (Optional)

From Run.

Type the following:

\\<servername>\VS2008\msdn\Setup\setup.exe /unattendfile <path to MSDN INI-file>

\\server\VS2008\msdn\Setup\setup.exe /unattendfile \\server\VS2008\MSDN2008_deployment.ini

Log File Locations

The following log files are generated during Visual Studio 2008 setup:

dd_error_<VS_Product>_90.txt 
dd_install_<VS_Product>_90.txt

VSMsiLog****.txt (where * is a randomly-generated suffix)

During Visual Studio setup , the log files are located in the %temp% directory.

C:\Documents and Settings\[User Name]\Local Settings\Temp

After Visual Studio installation , the log files are located in the Logs directory in the path that Visual Studio is installed.

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9\[Product Name]\Logs

After a Visual Studio failed installation or removal, the log files are left in the %temp% directory.

Hi,

I have already posted about a problem with VS 2005 Pro here http://www.msfn.org/board/Microsoft-Visual...l=Visual+Studio

I have now moved onto VS 2008 Pro and am getting the exact same problem. It seems to be related to Windows Installer 3.1. Below is the last part of the log file. I can't attach my complete log file as when I hit the broswe button IE locks up (The machine I am writing this from is not the machine I am trying to deploy VS 2008 too :))

When I run the VS 2008 Setup manually it completes without any problems. I'm trying to install it onto a PC running Windows XP inc SP3. I have checked Event Viewer in the Application log it states: Product: Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Professional Edition - ENU -- Installation completed successfully.

I have just read Microsofts install guide again and found reference to Network paths not exceeding 39 characters. The path to the Windows 3.1 installer on out network is 90 characters. I think that's the issue. Could someone please confirm?

Log File:

Thanks in advance for any help.
