The silent mode is working as designed (i.e. silent -> no error messages whatsoever, even in debug mode). Does this happen on a single Unix platform or on all of them (assuming that there are more than one). How exactly do you launch your installer?

i launch my installer by this command sh dprj200720.bin -i silent or I set the installer_ui=silent in the .properties file

Well, the output is quite clear, isn't it? "Please report the following to IA Engineering:" So it looks like you found a bug in InstallAnywhere!

Have you enabled the silent mode in your installer? I'm not sure how can you run the installer both in silent and in debug mode? Then the output you posted comes from a console mode and not silent...

I have enabled silent mode in my installer this debug mode is run by setting LAX_DEBUG=true this works for console as well as silent mode
