Issue in passing parameter to Advanced UI Suite Setup.exe

08/01/2013 4744 views

I'm facing an issue while passing parameter to Suite Setup.exe. If the parameter contains space, then execution will not happen. Eg: Setup.exe /silent INSTALLDIR="C:\My Path" Here Setup.exe is my Suite and suite cotains msi, so I have to pass INSTALLDIR from outside. I dont want to use the Silent Command Line option in Package. I need to pass it from Commandline only. Any help on this will be appreciable. Thanks -RN

  • Thanks Jagadeish, But we are not using Basic Project's Setup.exe. Your solution will work for Basic Project.
    We are using Advanced UI Suite Setup.exe which is available in 2012 Spring Premier Edition of Installshield. If you getting any clue on thisplease post the same.

Command line options should work regardless of which version of Installshield you are using. The inability to pass multiple parameters to your setup.exe file suggests an issue with your project. Perhaps you need to look at the parsing of the command string.  Alternatively, you could edit your MSI to remove all dialogs so that the install is naturally silent.
