I've been having a lot of trouble with getting this silent install to work. I finally got a working batch with the following script: "setup.exe /s/v USEINI=setup.ini /qn" All the other options failed on me (MSI, ISS capture, etc). If you're having a problem with the installation, try this out.
I tired the above methods with little or no success. The application would install but not take in account the setup.ini parameters. I finally got the silent unattended installation working by using AdminStudio to edit the extracted msi and then creating a transform with the differences. Works like a dream.
1. Change your setup.ini
The options for all settings you'll find in the install.txt file.
Put this section to the end.
COUNTRY = Germany
SETUPTYPE = Enterprise
MAILSERVER = Exchange
REDIRECTOR = Enterprise
USERS = AllUsers
SHORTCUTSTARTUP = False
SHORTCUTDESKTOP = False
Change to the folder where the install files are stored and execute the following line.
setup.exe /s /l1031 /vINSTALLLEVEL=100
The options are:
US is default.
100 is default
1 BlackBerry Handheld Manager 1
100 BlackBerry Handheld Manager and BlackBerry Desktop Manager
125 BlackBerry Handheld Manager, BlackBerry Desktop Manager, and Certificate Synchronization
Further Option are in the KB Article:
In the file %Temp%\BB_DM_WR.log you'll see if the options are working in the right way.
4. My environment
User has only "USER" rights.
Scrip was executed as Computer related Service with Netinstall.
It works fine!
