Looking for the silent switch

I wonder if some one knows the silent switch mode for the latest update for the Revit Structure 2009 web update 2 from Autodesk.

 Below is the snapshot.

Post the exact text you were using. Worked for me no problem. Might also want to d/l the update again in the event it's corrupt.  I also tested the 64-it english version. What version are you trying (in case it's corrupt on Autodesk's web site).
Did you try RST2009_WU2_SP_ENU.exe /S (the S can be case sensitive)

That did not work.

Have you tried RST2009_WU2_SP_ENU.exe /? this will usually list the available switches

You could also try RST2009_WU2_SP_ENU.exe /q for a quite install

Do you know how can I extract the msp file. When I try the /q switch it is silent but at some point the windows installer window progress bar pops up. can that be suppress by SMS . Please find the snap shot.
This is the syntax to extraxt the MSP....(modify per your setup and use quotes arounf paths with spaces)
c:\myfolder\RST2009_WU2_SP_ENU.EXE /e c:\myfolder\RST2009u2.msp

This info is in the readme file.

You should be able to use /qn for no UI or /qb for a basic progress ui when calling the MSP from MSIEXEC

I keep getting Error Code: 13 Invalid command line switch. Do you know why is that happening.
I do not have spaces in my path and also user the quotes. . Is there any other way to create msp FILE
