Hi,

I am using InstallAnywhere Premier 2013 to launch 3 bundled msi files. I'm doing this with the "Execute Command" action as follows:

msiexec /a $USER_INSTALL_DIR$$/$IISServiceInstaller-1.2.1.msi

What happens is that the msi's will launch but they won't install themselves, it's like they die right away. But, I can launch them manually from that directory and they install without any problem.

Any insight into my problem is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Paul

Ah, I solved my own problem. Needed a /i instead of a /a, like so:

msiexec /i $USER_INSTALL_DIR$$/$IISServiceInstaller-1.2.1.msi
