Unable to silently install prerequisites when silently installing package

Postby ncoish » Thu Dec 07, 2017 10:32 pm

Hi all,

I am trying to build a package which has another of my installers as a prerequisite. If I install at full UI level, I expect both the main package and the prerequisite package to install using the full UI, which is exactly what happens. However, when I run the installer silently (by passing the /qn flag on the command line), I expect both the main package and the prerequisite installer to install silently. Instead, the main installer runs silently, but the prerequisite still pops up the full UI.

I have set the Install Command Lines from Prerequisites -> <prereq_package> -> Setup Files for `Silent (no UI)` to /qn, but the UI still pops up. The only way that I can suppress the prerequisite UI is to set the `Full UI` command line to /qn, but if I do this, the prerequisite always runs silently, even if the main package is run at Full UI. I have ensured that my package is Enterprise, as apparently non-enterprise packages ignore Basic and Silent command lines.

Any help would be appreciated, I have tried to do this in the past on previous versions of Advanced Installer and have run in to the same problem.
