I really wish this was the case. :)

Re: how to define a prerequisite pre-install (with URL) command line parameter

Hello Silvio, Thank you for your followup on this. I have tested this and everything worked as expected on my end, i.e. the prerequisite was installed silently.

Re: how to define a prerequisite pre-install (with URL) command line parameter

Hello,

Thank you for your followup on this.

In this case, I do not think a log file would be of much help.

In order for me to further investigate this, could you please forward me a download link for the respective prerequisite so I can test it on my end?

Best regards,

Hello,

Do you launch your main setup with full UI?

Please note that the command line passed into the "Full UI" field will only be used if the main setup is launched with full UI.

Re: Language based prerequisit

Hello Holvaa,

If the prerequisite is either feature-based or post-install, you could condition its' feature installation (in "Organization" page) based on the "ProductLanguage Property".

Your approach is, however, also correct.

Best regards,
Catalin
