I am trying to deploy IE 8.0 to clients via CAS.I have build msi file with IEAK then used publisher and tried to deploy.However it requires user interaction.I would like to perform silent installation.Has anyone tried this ? Any suggestions ?
I asked this question on our internal forum. Here is the response I got:
I just tried it out with some success... First I just used the raw executable that can be downloaded from following location: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/downloa...03-08cdecd8852b (This is specific to Windows XP, Windows Vista would require different download) For install switches I used the following: /quiet /update-no /norestart All seems to work well, however CAS still reboots the machine to finish installation... But no user interaction is required... So maybe this is acceptable to customer?
When publishing executables, you need to use "component select" within admin publisher. Navigate to the executable, and then right click and choose, set install command. Then define your command line switches, such as /quiet /update-no /norestart/
However, I noticed in my testing the install still requires a reboot after CAS is finished installing...
