View Full Version : Big problem with Run Windows Installer

01-28-2005, 06:57 AM
I need to install external MSI files during my installation. I use the following parameters to achieve a silent install:

Run Window Installer %_SB_INSTALLDIR%/SomeOther.MSI /i /quiet

This works fine on my XP machine.

But when I run my setup on Windows 2000 (which has an older Windows Installer), I get an error. On this setup I have to use

Run Windows Installer %_SB_INSTALLDIR%/SomeOther.MSI /q

So I wonder if it is possible to detect which version of Windows Installer is available, or if SetupBuilder could have a Checkbox for Quiet install and figure this out automatically.

Yes, you can do this. I would suggest to use the Get System Information (Windows Installer Version) script item.

Does this help?
