Hello,

I try to install

SQLAnywhere10_Windows_Patch_10.0.1.exe

without user interaction in a network environment. If I invoke the install program with the -r option, no *.iss file is generated. Does anybody know, how I can install this patch automatically?

Thanks in advance Joachim Emde

Did you follow the steps as described in the docs? - FWIW, the response file should be generated in the Windows directory.

BTW, you can also use the Deployment Wizard to customize a setup as a MSI file, and then have that run silently with the usual Windows Installer service options...

I am not sure if the same would apply for version 10 but the discussion on this question for SA12 might help you with the silent install.

Hope it helps.

Hello,

many thanks for your help.

BTW, you can also use the Deployment Wizard to customize a setup as a MSI file, and then have that run silently with the usual Windows Installer service options... I first tried to use the msi file produced with the deployment wizard. But on 64 bit machines there where no 32 bit odbc drivers installed which I need.

With your help I learned that the SQLAnywhere10_Windows_Patch_10.0.1.exe file is an archive which I could open with winrar. Inside this archive there is again a setup.exe which understands -s option. So everything is fine now.

Many thanks again Joachim Emde

Sorry, I didn't get the point that you were trying to make a silent run of a packaged download file. For this, there's an official documentation here:

Using a Silent Installation to Deploy a SQL Anywhere 11 Express Bug Fixes, SQL Anywhere Monitor or the Documentation ...
