I've built a silent install file for IBM iSeries Access which works just fine, except that the -SMS switch seems to be ignored: I launch Setup.EXE in a DOS box with appropriate parameters:
setup -SMS -s -f1C:\Install\IBM_Silent.iss
and it runs with the icon in the taskbar, but returns control to the DOS window almost immediately. This is a problem because eventually, the install will be wrapped in an MSI (WAY too much work to re-package it...) and then distributed via Group Policy.
Now, I *could* set up a script to launch Setup.EXE and have the script loop until Setup.EXE process terminates but surely the point of the -SMS switch is that Setup doesn't return control until it's finished its job.
