SQL Server express 2005.
I want to install from batch file as part of an application set-up, either from a CD or USB stick.
I have created a settings .INI file, and the following works, but ONLY IF I specify the drive letter and full path of the .INI file:
start /WAIT setup.exe /ADDLOCAL=ALL /qn /settings Y:\install\sqlexpresstemplate.ini
(I was working from the directory Y:\install)
If I use
start /WAIT setup.exe /ADDLOCAL=ALL /qn /settings sqlexpresstemplate.ini
then it looks for the file C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Setup Bootstrap\sqlexpresstemplate.ini which of course does not exist.
Any ideas how to use a .INI file from the CD when I do not know what drive letter the CD drive will be?
