Experts,
I have the installation disks of a nt/windows 95 program, it has been made using InstallShield, i have to install the program in a lot of nt workstations,
i would like to use the silent installation... i tried to use setup -r and setup -s but it doesn't work, the setup.log is :

[InstallShield Silent]
Version=v5.00.000
File=Log File
[ResponseResult]
ResultCode=-5

The ResultCode -5 i think is because there isnt' any setup.iss in the installer...

I need to know if i can perform the silent installation or the installer is configured to not to use the silent mode or if i can write the setup.iss myself!  then i would need  to know how can i write this file...

Thanks for your help...

The setup.iss response file should be in the same folder with setup.exe. When registering the response file using -r setup.iss is stored in the Windows folder.
You can provide the path to the .iss file if you want.
setup -s -f1c:\windows\setup.iss

Thanks ecaterina9.
Maybe you can help me in this problem to:

Running the silent installation of a product with setup.exe -s; the installation doesn't create the program folder an shortcut from the start menu, the pc is a nt-workstation 4.0 and the user logged on is adminstrator!

To run the setup remotely you must launch Setup.exe with the -SMS switch.
setup -s -f1c:\windows\setup.iss -SMS
