Unable to use msiexec /i <WIXinstaller.msi> /qn

vijay chander
Hi,


I have a requirement to silent install an installer created using WIX.
I have created a sample WIX installer with WIX UI Templates, when trying to
install the same installer with MSIEXEC commands it was not working.

Command used:
msiexec /i sampleUI.msi /qn

When I have tried using with option /qb installation was successful..

Can we use msiexec for silent installation or WIX provides any options for
Silent Installation through command line?
Please let me know how can i resolve this issue.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Vijay Chander

Hi,

@Swapnil: Thanks for the reply but below is the behaviour

I have tried as you have mentioned i.e., msiexec /qn /i sample.msi. Even
that didn't work.

I thought this problem is because i'm using feature tree, while on Silent
install it was unable to get at features so it is not installing and tried
using installdefault attribute of feature tag with value local. Still it
didn't work.

Vijay Chander

Re: Unable to use msiexec /i <WIXinstaller.msi> /qn

In reply to this post by vijay chander
Hi,

@Vijay: I tried silent installation using feature tree using msiexec /qn /i sample.msi. And it is working fine. It must be some another issue.

Thanks,

Hi,

@Swapnil: Thanks for the reply but below is the behaviour

I have tried as you have mentioned i.e., msiexec /qn /i sample.msi. Even
that didn't work.

I thought this problem is because i'm using feature tree, while on Silent
install it was unable to get at features so it is not installing and tried
using installdefault attribute of feature tag with value local. Still it
didn't work.

Regards,
Vijay Chander
