5 posts in this topic

I use:

  <execute display="Windows Messenger 5.1">

    <program>%SYSTEMDRIVE%\Install\Applications\messenger.msi</program>

    <arguments>qb-</arguments>

  </execute>

but I have a message like this:

"The following app "Xplode core"' is using files which are about to be updated, close the window before continuing"

I'm guessing here, but it probably wants to muck around with the IE stuff, and you're probably using the SelectInstall display plugin.

Switch display plugins.

Try:

 <execute display="Windows Messenger 5.1">
   <program>%SYSTEMDRIVE%\Install\Applications\messenger.msi</program>
   <arguments>/qb-</arguments>
 </execute>

Hi,

When calling the *.msi file directly I had several problems in the past. Thus I am calling the file by using the msiexec.exe and that's looking like that:

<item display="Microsoft Messenger 5.01">
  <execute display="Installing..." desc="MS Messenger">
     <program>#SystemRoot#\System32\msiexec.exe</program>
     <arguments>/i #Systemdrive#\Install\MS_Messenger\Messenger.msi /qb /norestart ALLUSERS=1 EULA_ACCEPT=YES</arguments>
     <hide>true</hide>
     <wait>true</wait>
  </execute>
</item>

May be that the parameters "ALLUSERS" and "EULA_ACCEPT" are not necessary but both don't generate an error.

Hope that helps

Michael
