Silent Installs with eXpress Edition

463737 Member Posts: 10
I am interested in looking at XE for my clients.

I have an ESL for SE1, SE, EE, and PE. With those Editions, I create a Silent Response file which I then call from the command line. How would I do that with XE?

Thanks very much!

    Normally you can record a response file when doing a normal installation with an InstallShield installer. This response file can then be called afterwards for subsequent installations.

    It won't work with all InstallShield installations though and I haven't tried with XE. But you can read instructions about it here and try it.

    That worked perfectly!

    I'll just have to figure a way to deinstall it for those customers who upgrade to Standard Edition One or higher.

    Thank you very much for your help!!
