Silent install instructions and parameters for MySQL 8.0.32

Hi, I need some help figuring out how to do a silent install of MySQL 8.0.32. I currently got this command:

Code: Select all

msiexec /a mysql-installer-community-8.0.32.0.msi TRANSFORMS=mysql_transform.mst TARGETDIR=D:\mysql-installer-community-8.0.32.0 /qb
which gives me a "This Installer doesn't support Advertise or Admin installation option". What other stuff do I need to do to make it work? I specifically need 8.0.32 to work as well

Hello and welcome to our forums,

In order for me to better assist here, could you please provide a download link for the MySQL MSI so I can run some tests on my end?

Best regards,

Re: Silent install instructions and parameters for MySQL 8.0.32

Hello,

I have just noticed that you are passing the /a parameter to the MySQL MSI, which stands for administrative installation - it basically just extracts the content of the MSI. It looks like the MySQL MSI does not support that and thus it throws that warning.

If you'd like to install the MSI, please use the /i parameter of MsiExec instead.

Let me know if that helps!
