FAQ Installation Question #15 www.erieri.com Frequently Asked Questions Installation Topics
 QUESTION: How do I perform a silent installation?   Parameters for silent installations follow:   /r In order to run an installation program in silent mode, you must first run Setup.exe with the /r option to generate a response file, which displays all the run-time dialogs, and stores the responses in a file.  The default file is Setup.iss, created inside the system's Windows folder.  To specify an alternative response file name and location, use the /f1 option, described below.   /s The command Setup.exe /s runs the installation in silent mode.  Use this along with the /f1 option to specify the absolute path of the response file.  (Response files are created by running Setup.exe with the /r option.)   /f1 The /f1 option is available both when creating a response file (with the /r option) and when using a response file (with the /s option).  Using the /f1 option enables you to specify where the response file is (or where it should be created) and what its name is, as in:                Setup.exe /r /f1"C:\temp\response.iss"        Setup.exe /s /f1"C:\temp\response.iss"   Specify an absolute path; using a relative path gives unpredictable results.
