A Forum reader asked the following question:
“I’d like to install SecureLogin 6.1.0 using a response file and have it display the installation progress to the user. Then I want it to prompt the user to reboot after the installation is completed. Everything works fine, except for the prompt to reboot.”
And here’s the reply from Allan Clausen …
Msiexec.exe /i "T:\SSO\Novell SecureLogin.msi" /qb PATHTOISS="T:\SSO\responsefile.ini" DWUSMANAGER=0 REBOOT=Force
Please note the DWUSMANAGER variable – it stops the Install Shield Download manager.
Below is my ResponseFile.ini description. First of all, I will not be held liable for this list – so it’s entirely at your own risk 🙂
Remember that the responsefile.ini is not like a normal INI file. The line number is determining the function of the values. So I have compiled a “line number list.”
The default value is just my own defaults, not necessarily
SecureLogin defaults. You can check those by doing an install without selecting anything, and then look in C:\NSLFiles for the result.
– “N/A” means a blank line, as “NO” and “0” are not always used the same way.
– In Line 11, data is written by SecureLogin, even though no data is entered during install.
– “No” and “NO” are used by SecureLogin. I have not tried
to see if this makes a difference.
