    Oops. Sorry about that. Try this:
    setup.exe /s /v"/l*v \"c:\My Log File.txt\" /qn"

    OK I got a logfile finally to generate with this statement:

    setup.exe /s /v/qn /debuglog"C:\users\scott\desktop\silent.log"

    With Win7 you need to save to a directory with proper permissions.

    The last statement in the log is:

    Setup returning 1603

    - My application requires .net 4.0 and the install program handles detection and installation just fine. But it looks like it is failing in silent mode. The computer
    I am testing on already has .Net 4.0 installed.

    The log file also shows this:

    "Skipping prerequisite 'Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 Full.prq' because it was installed before the reboot"

    Where next?

    The debuglog contains information about Setup.exe. It doesn't contain information about the .msi part of the installaton. Can you try logging with the corrected command line that I posted, and then post both of the log files?

    The new statement still just pops open the dialog box I described.

    I tried changing the directory just in case with the same result.

    setup.exe /s /v"*/*l*v \"c:\users\scott\desktop\My Log File.txt\" /qn"

    OK - I might have missed the new line or something this worked:

    setup.exe /s /v"/l*v \"c:\users\scott\desktop\My Log File.txt\" /qn"

    Logfile attached.
