Silent deployment of a .exe application


I have an exe that uses  app that I want to install silently (for the time being on desktop then maybe on docker)

The problem is even though the installation doesn't work, I don't get any error codes.

I tried variations of this command:

Start-Process -FilePath ".\Objets100c_902.exe" -ArgumentList "/s /a /f1.\Setup_OM.iss" -Wait -PassThru

if you want the file for testing purposes you can find it here.

How are you deploying it, via Kace scripting? Have you tried removing the silent parameters to see what the error may be? Is the powershell you're running located in the same folder as the exe and iss file where it can locate it via .\?

For this deployment I'm not using any other software. The problem is I want to install the program in a docker container as it is a dependency for my app.

The installation works normally when executed in a non-silent mode but bugs out when executed in silent mode with a with no error in the logs but the installation doesn't complete.

the log:

[InstallShield Silent]


File=Log File




Name=Sage 100c Objets metiers Runtime




These logs where from tests on the host computer and not in a docker container.

And the files are indeed in the same folder. 

  • Have you been able to install it and use it on docker ?

    From my understanding it's not possible to install OM on Docker because it need at least .gcm .mae installation to run.

    It's not just a simple DLL that you can use on your app. - loken 4 weeks ago
