MYOB 2011 Accounting Silent install

Post by Mavericks choice » Sat Jun 30, 2012 4:21 pm

Wondering if anyone has installed Account Right Basics 2011 & able to install silently from an admin install?
I have previously & successfully installed earlier versions of MYOB though having problems with this one.
Once I perform the admin/network extraction can have it install silently though does not produce any shortcuts either in programs list or desktop?
It does show on installed programs though. when I run manually & try to update it says it aint installed??
If you try to install the recommended method "setup.exe /S qvn" refuses to install.
Any pointers are appreciated

Maybe because your switch is wrong

BTW use the /l switch to create a log and see what commandline switches setup.exe uses (the msi might be missing a few property commands)

Code: Select all

setup /S /v/qn /l <path_to_log.txt>

Thanks Rick I ended up using the "/r" to record & create the setup.iss file but found it stalls on the serial/key page. I edited the .iss file for my product key but fails to use it?

Code: Select all

[{C53917E5-789F-4BF0-91EE-F5BF29560122}-DlgOrder]

Perhaps the serial key inclusion area is incorrect?

If you want to do a gui setup and get a log try without /qn

Code: Select all

setup /S /v/l <path_to_log.txt>
Are you sure there is a MSI?

To me it does not look like it

Sure is, setup.exe looks for the myob.msi.

Setup log,
[ResponseResult]
ResultCode=0

Starting to think this installshield installer has "custom dialogs" which are not supported by setup.iss!

Closest can get to a silent install is running setup.exe /S with the setup.iss file in the root.
The serial/rego key pops up & if you key next without inserting the key it does install!
Someone else having the same problem here http://community.myob.com/t5/Upgrading- ... d-p/116040

May have to devise a quick autoit script to handle it?

If you want, upload a copy of the app somewhere, PM me the link and I'll take a run at it. Always up for a challenge..... 8)

You'll have to contact Mavericks choice. The app was bought and paid for by him. I deleted all when I was finished.... 8)

Thanks for the offers Guys, but this Installshield is not the usual style msi! With Elite's help have used VM thin app & virtual Mach. to make an installer that is Aus region specific. I can now install it very fast, silently all setup installer under 165mb very cool.

Thanks & Regards
