I made setup with setup.exe file and tried setup -s option (silent mode) and all is ok, but when I put all setups file to self extracting (InstallShield option Packaging) then I cannot use silent mode - switch -s doesn't work.

What can I todo?

Thanks in advance

In the packaged scenario, you need to preceed the setup's internal switches with a -a, meaning additional, so that the wrapper properly passes them down to the underyling IS setup.

Therefore, in this case, you would run the following:

<SelfExtractingPackage.exe> -a -s
