setup.ISS living in a different location
Posted 18 July 2003 - 19:38
I have a 3rd party installer that I need to launch silently. The 3rd party has supplied me with ISS files that I need to modify prior to launching their installer. That being said, the ISS file lives in a completely different location than the setup.exe
Application Lives at:
Setup.iss lives at:
I am using Windows Scripting Host to make the following call:
<cd drive>:\3rdParty\AppName\setup -s -f1c:\test\setup.iss
The resulting error in the Setup.log is "-8" telling me that it is an invald path to the response file.
Am I missing something here? Does the ISS have to be in the existing path of the setup.exe?
Any help would be appreciated.

Your syntax looks correct, so does the same thing happen when you just run the commmand directly from Windows instead of this scripting language? 'cause it may be losing something in "the translation".

Also, just to verify the ISS, try put both the setup and this file in the same directory and just running it with with -s switch.
Finally, has this setup been wrapped so that it's a single-executable install? 'cause if it has you need to have the -a switch before all those other ones.

* It is confirmed that the third party is using 6.x installer
* I have put both the installer and the ISS in the same directory. And the result is that it does work as expected
* THis particualr installert is not wrapped up in an EXE. This was one of the first things that I had verified.
I'm completely out os ideas on why this isn't working
