Hi,

Is there a way I can do a silent install fo JDK 1.5_14?. I tried out the method suggested on the Sun/Java website below from the Windows command line..but it doesn't work as it pulls up the InstallShield wizard ..and the website directs me to InstallShield support

Thanks

I double-checked it actually is working from command line but not from within InstallAnywhere 2008 using Exec Command Action

 I have this set up in the Exec Command action of  my IA 2008 project..it executes fine..but still launches the JDK install in GUI mode and not in silent mode as specified on the Sun website http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/sdksilent.html

$INSTALLER_TEMP_DIR$$\$jdk-1_5_0_14-windows-i586-p.exe /s /v"/qn INSTALLDIR=C:\gehc-it\cfw\Java\jdk1.5.0_14"
