Hi,

You can use setup.exe /silent to install it silently.Since it is suite setup you can use all the parameters related suite project mentioned here:

Thanks now need to figure out if i can install this on Windows Server Core. With regular windows server 2016 i can install in silent mode just fine but with Server core it appears to hang up and not sure why.

Hi,

Possible cause would be failure instantiation of MediaBuild40.dll,

-can you try registering C:\<PROGRAMFILES32>InstallShield\2019\System\MediaBuild40.dll on the docker instance?
-Give it a try for basic MSI project building also,to get to know root-cause.

Thanks,
Jenifer

So i register the dll, and built a basic msi and it appears to work but unable to build a installscript project.

After more testing, i can build msi install script project just not a pure installscript project. i did try CD-ROM option for compressing files which does not compress but it still fails with the same error.
