Excel Viewer 2007 Silent Install

01/29/2014 10192 views

I'm using Wise Package Studio to create a silent install package for all of the Microsoft Viewers and Compatibility Pack. All of my packages run completely silent except for the excel viewer. I still have a window that pops up during installation and my group would like it silent.


I ran the file from the command prompt with /? and it said use /quiet for silent /passive for uninterrupted. I'm running both of those commands with the excution with set to hidden. Has anyone else come across this issue and know how to get the file to install silently?




Execute %TEMP%\ExcelViewer.exe /quiet /passive (Wait)

You can either choose the /quiet switch for silent and /passive for semi-silent installation but don't use both
