Silent Install from CD and setup.log
Posted 28 September 2006 - 16:04
I know that the /f2 parameter can be used to force the log elsewhere--however, the desire is to not have to "hard-code" the path and name of the file to somewhere like C:\Temp or C:\Windows (not all our target systems have TEMP off of C, and some target systems are still Windows NT), or to somehow re-direct the creation of the log to another location during OnBegin. My installers check a registry key to set the location of <TARGETDIR>.
This is holding up the QA group from doing acceptance testing, so a prompt response would be most welcome.

But I guess that's asking too much

start /wait setup.exe -s -SMS -f1"PATHTOWHEREVERTHEISSFILEIS" -f2"%LOGDIR%\TheAppName.LOG"

It appears to function ok if I launch the setup from Start/Run with the command-line parameters, but we have a setup launcher that uses an INI file to feed the individual setup kits the proper command-line arguments. I have verified the syntax of the command-line arguments, and have verified that I have a TEMP environment variable that points to a valid path.
Does anyone have any ideas???
