I've been having horrible luck for a long time with Installshield. When it works, it works great. When it doesn't work, I have an awful time figuring out the problem. Now it has come down to just a small handfull of problem programs to sort out before I can finally call my unattended disc (well, the apps part, anyway) complete.

Basically, I can't get the Logitech mouse and keyboard software, Pinnacle Studio, and PowerDVD to install at all. I've tried various forms of the command line and recreated the iss files several times all to no avail. Here they are:

PowerDVD
start /wait %cdrom%\Apps\Multimedia\PDVD\Setup.exe -S -f1"%cdrom%\Apps\Multimedia\PDVD\setup.iss"

Pinnacle Studio 8
start /wait %cdrom%\Apps\Multimedia\PinnacleDisc1\Setup\Setup.exe -S -f1"%cdrom%\Apps\Multimedia\PinnacleDisc1\Setup\setup.iss"
start /wait %cdrom%\Apps\Multimedia\PinnacleDisc2\Setup.exe -S -f1"%cdrom%\Apps\Multimedia\PinnacleDisc2\setup.iss"

Logitech Mouseware and iTouch software
start /wait %cdrom%\Apps\Utilities\Logitech\itouch\it220enu.exe -a -S -f1"%cdrom%\Apps\Utilities\Logitech\itouch\setup.iss"
start /wait %cdrom%\Apps\Utilities\Logitech\mouseware\mw9791enu.exe -a -S -f1"%cdrom%\Apps\Utilities\Logitech\mouseware\setup.iss"


cdrom is assigned properly, so that rules out that possible issue. I'd post the iss files as well, but they'd make the post quite lengthy and I doubt they'll be of any help. Of course, if you want to look at them I can post them. Anything to help you help me.

Installshield has a tendency to quite if it can't write a log, and the -f2 makes sure you have a path

-f2"%windir%\temp\install.log"
