Silent installation of MFC 2012 SP1 fails

I have been deploying MFC 2010 and 2011 in the past without problems, but MoldFlow Communicator 2012 SP1 fails.

 

I am using the following command line:

amcpc.exe /SP- /VERYSILENT /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES /LOG /NORESTART

 The log file contains the following:

 I think this is due to checking for 3Dconnexion.

A manual installation just works fine, but I won't run arond in the company and install ~50 systems manually.

 

Thanks in advance for any pointers,

Stefan

Hello Stefan

I spoke with one of the developers and got the follwing information. Hopefully this will work, if not their is a new release of 2013 communicator  that shoudl be avalable for download soon.

Since 2012, we had have added Eula agreement, which is mandatory. So if the install command line is same as cited previously, but having for example

/eulalang=”enu” SP- /VERYSILENT /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES /LOG /NORESTART
will make the jobJ

Hello Derek,

 

Adding the switch /eulalang="enu" solved the problem, thanks for the hint.

 

Where can I find information about the commandline switches for the installer, which are not standard Inno Setup switches?

 

Thanks for the fast solution.
