MSI package and quiet mode
Posted 30 August 2012 - 17:04
does someone knows, why it's absolutely necessary, that MSI packages are running in quiet mode?
I would like to decide the mode myself.

I'm doing something wrong.
I only want to start a simple msi from a simple suite.
I can' see the UI of the basic MSI.
The next problem is, I don't find the logfile.

|The /l command-line option cannot be passed to the package to generate a log file. If you want to log the installation, use either the logging system policy, or the MsiLogging property. |
Note that a Suite installation always launches .msi packages silently. Therefore, it is not necessary to pass a command-line parameter that hides the user interface of the .msi package.
I guess that explains the problems you are seeing. I don't know if this has changed in IS 2012 Spring version or if there's a workaround (other than using a .exe instead of a .msi)

I don't want to make around all MSIs an EXE launcher with all the additional efforts.
