I created the file .iss below for automatic installation of Sybase. However, I can't suppress the choice of language. Some help?

The problem was not in setup.iss, was clarified at this link. Best regards, Leonardo.

I guess you have used the "Record silent setup" feature to record this .iss response file?

FWIW, it seems the "Choose Language Dialog" is a feature not set in the response but in the products SETUP.INI - at least in my case there's the following section:

[Startup]
EnableLangDlg=Y
AppName=SQL Anywhere Studio
...

And apparently changing the first entry to "...=N" omits the according dialog.

Yes, I used "Record silent setup" feature, but setup.ini is set this option.

This is the screen that asks me. There is missing some information the file. iss to pre-configure option?

Sorry, I can't give more clues - it was several years ago that I used a v9 silent setup for the last time, and in our case, the language dialog was suppressed, IIRC...

The contents of the setup.ini seems rather similar, except that

  • the CmdLine= is empty

  • and the Language section is shorter (fitting to our licensed languages, methinks):

[Languages]
Default=0x0009
count=2
key0=0x0009
key1=0x0007

However, as in your sample, the default language is the one listed in the setup.iss.

(09 Oct '12, 09:43) Volker Barth

Your setup.iss file is missing the entry for the ClickWrap dialog - that is the one you see showing up during the silent install. Not sure why this happened during your recording. Your setup.iss is also missing an entry for one of the Destination Path entry dialogs - so you would probably end up seeing that dialog as well during the silent install. I've attached the setup.iss I generated during my test install for comparison.

Try one of the following options:

  1. Manually add the missing dialog entries to your setup.iss, or,
  2. Re-run the recording session ensuring that you enter the required information in all dialog fields in all dialogs presented.

My SETUP.ISS from a test recording:

I guess the 3rd destination folder is only used when installing the samples.

However, I can confirm that "ClickWrapLicense" is not missing in my .iss file, and furthermore it has "Result=1" for the "SdWelcome" entry like in your file, whereas Leonardo has "=0". Might that matter here, too?

Volker,

You're right about the third destination dialog being for the Samples. But it should show regardless because the Component dialog hasn't been displayed yet and therefore the Samples haven't been de-selected yet. (Unless there is some command line dependency - I don't recall) [Forgive me folks I'm a little rusty at this rather archaic version 9 stuff :-( ].

You're also correct about the Result=0 (I missed that!). I believe that means the Next button was not clicked to dismiss the dialog. Which should mean the install was canceled. Not sure what to make of that!

I would strongly recommend re-recording the install making sure that all dialog responses are extremely accurate. If you make any errors whatsoever - start over again!!
