using iexpress for .msi appz

Recommended Posts

mehargags    0

I made some self installing Silent plgs for Certain Appz lilke Rar,ultraiso, & other stuff using Iexpress utility & all of them flawlessly install. Only Glitch i faced is regarding the MSI based setups. For eg:-

I wanted to make an auto install for cmdhere.msi. Now i pkgd it with iexpress & in the Install Program field i tried the following ways turnwise:-

Cmdhere.msi /quiet

this gave me -- Error creating Process<E:\docum~1\abc\local~1\TEMP\IX000.tmp\cmdhere.msi /quiet>. Reason: E:\iwndows\system32\advpack.dll

then i tried

msiexec.exe /quiet Cmdhere.msi

&

msiexec.exe /i /quiet Cmdhere.msi %*

But all i get is a msg window showing me possible Parameters of msiexec.

Can u pls tell me how i can pkg these MSI based Appz so that i can use it in the SVCPACK.inf.

No im not making an unattended CD-- i just want these appz to be installed alongside with XP.

thx

Try MSI Extractor (a tool to extract files from .msi files). Then you can customise any file(s) and installation command.

You can find MSI Extractor here.

msiexec /i Cmdhere.msi /quiet

You do have to layout the command correctly or the window will popup to help out.

extract installer, if your msi has setup.ini file to guide install, try adding somethomg like:

CmdLine= /qn

under [startup]

CmdLine is usually blank after =.

_good luck...see attached, other option for pre iexpress tweaking.
