We have Stylus Studio 2007 XML Enterprise. I am currently creating unattended setups for all our developer tools.

Is it possible to install Stylus Studio unattended?

Hi Michael,
the current installer doesn't support silent installations.

These are my steps on how to perform an unattended/silent install for Stylus Studio 2007. I hope this helps.

First, run the StylusStudio's setup.exe file. This will extract all of the setup files to the user's %temp% folder and start the InstallShield wizard.

Leave the setup running, and navigate to %temp%. You can sort the files/folders by Date Modified and look for the 3 recently modified folders in that folder (they should all have the same date/time). One folder contains setup.exe and other related files. Copy all of those files to another folder for use (i.e. C:\stylusstudio).

In the folder you just created, open a command prompt window (hold Shift then right-click a blank area in Windows Explorer and click "Open command window here".

You'll first need to record the Setup configuration by running through a setup installation in record mode and output to a .iss file for later use. At the cmd window, type the following:

setup.exe /r /f1"C:\stylusstudio\setup.iss"

This will start the installation normally. Proceed through the steps and define any special configuration settings for all users you want to silently install.

After installation is finished, look in your original C:\stylusstudio folder and you should see a setup.iss file. This holds all info you specified for the installation you just performed. This can now be defined for silent installs using the command line below:

setup.exe /s /f1"C:\stylusstudio\setup.iss"

StylusStudio 2007 will perform a silent installation.

Please note that an absolute path needs to be specified after the f1 parameter (i.e. setup.exe /s /f1"setup.iss" will not work even if the file is in the same folder).

I haven't figured out yet how to automatically activate the software yet using a key, but I am working on it. :)
