Hey guys, hoping someone can help me here. I am trying to do a silent install of Streets and Trips 2005 to use on my unattended DVD.

I have already combined both CDs into one place and successfully did an admin install first and have my data.mst file all ready to go. The total size is 1.2 GB and works great as long as I run it from the hard drive. But as soon as I burn this streets folder to DVD the install only works half way until it asks for CD2. It never asks for CD2 when I run the same data.msi from the hard drive??? Anyone know how to solve this?

This is the command line I am using
data.msi transforms=data.mst /passive /norestart

but have also tested a manual isntall by just clicking data.msi and walking through it. Aagain it works fine if run from a folder on the hard drive but will not complete when run from DVD. I assume this has something to do with needing write access? Would be nice to solve this without having to first copy the 1.2gb to hard drive and run install from there.

Is there another msi in the cd2? I think you have to schedule that to run after the first msi. :)

Mine installs fine from the DVD (didn't test in silent mode although).

Option #1 What I did is copy the Second cd to a folder first then copied the first CD into the folder. I had probelms if copying the first cd in then the second. Overwrite all existing files.

Option #2 there is only like 1 or 2 fiels you really need on cd to under the data directories I believe jsut copy those into a folder containg your cd 1. Don't worry about the rest of the cd structure like pocket streets (make sure you get any maps in there if they exist and copy them too).

I also have on my dvd Mappoint 2004 in a sperate folder (2cds combined) and works fine this way. Now I jsut need to see if i can figure out how to combine S&T 2005 and Mappoint as they seem to use the same data sources.

Wouldn't you be able to do an /A install on this like you can with Autoroute? mebbe if that works it will combine all the data in the admin install..

I did the /a administrative install straight from the CD.

From Run... on the start menu:

D:\Setup_ST.exe /a

Then I just went through the install as per normal, it asks you to insert the Run Disc, I did that, and everything you need is in the folder you specify during the administrative install.

Then I just played around with the Setup_ST.ini file that's in the folder specified in the administrative install.

The pertinent points in mine to get a silent install that runs completely from the hard drive look like this:

[Options]
USERNAME=Your Name
RUNTIME=FALSE

[Display]
Display=None
CompletionNotice=No

I'm pretty sure that the RUNTIME=False is what gets you to get the entire installation on the hard drive. If you open up the Setup_ST.ini, each section is explained fairly well, just make sure you remove the ; prefixing any comments you edit and want to keep.

Another thing you might try doing is using the Cutom Installation Wizard of the Microsoft Office ORK to make a transfrom. I tried it and it seemed to work. However, the ORK tells you that you may not get the proper reults considering that it's not Office. The only reason I tried in the first place is because i tried a /? switch on the Setup_ST.exe and it told me to go to to the Office ORK page for support on command line parameters. In any case, the first method works like a charm.

How big is the size of the AIP? Is it smaller than the original installer?

@totoymola:

The AIP turned out to be 1.03 GB. Not too shabby! The stats from the original are as follows:

577 MB (Install Disc)
+ 494 MB (Run Disc)
1071 MB (1.05 GB)

So the admin install makes it very slightly smaller (insignificantly really). However, this method is very smooth, requires no switches, and works very well.

@Astalavista:

To get the administrative install started use the /a switch.

If you edit the Setup_ST.ini file as I have (see above post: <{POST_SNAPBACK}>), you don't need any switches at all for a completely silent install from the AIP.

Hope that clarifies. :huh:

Step by Step Instructions

Requirements:

A. Street & Trips 2005
B. 7zip
C. MST File i created
D. Registry Tweak for Eula and Registration

Step 1: Creating an Admin Install Point

Use this command to create a Admin Install Point.
Setup_ST.exe /a

Place It in C:\Streets

Step 2: Using MST to do a Full Install.

Note: I discovered the if u do not use a MST, silently installing will lead only to a min installation. I tried to hack the data.msi but to no success. That is why i ended up
making a MST. I tried to use Office CIW to make a MST but it was not compatible.
I had to use Wise MST maker.


Place the MST File i created in the same location as Setup_ST.exe

Step 3: Choosing the type to GUI or Display

A. With GUI Box without Cancel

Setup_ST.exe transforms=data.mst /qb!

B. Totally Silent

Setup_ST.exe transforms=data.mst /qn

If u want to save 105MB u can use the 7zip compression.

Look for keytotime's guide on how to make a 7zip installer.

Here is the command u will need

;!@Install@!UTF-8!
RunProgram="Setup_ST.exe transforms=data.mst /qn /T:%%T"
;!@InstallEnd@!
