Create Silent Installation

Hi
I have an MSI installation that does not accept silent install option ( /quiet or /qn).
Does anyone know how can I make it complete silent.
Thank you for your help.

Not without looking into it. All MSI installations accept /qn, so if yours does not, it needs to be found why; maybe there's some special tweak inside of it that forces the dialog regardless of command line . it has to be found. If you can upload your MSI here, please do and we will take a look. Otherwise you have to look inside the MSI (using MSI editor like orca, or whatever is available) and find what might be causing it.

Thanks for your comment.

I cannot upload the MSI. What I am looking for freeware tools to record the Installation and all the dependencies.
Does anyone know a freeware tool able to record an MSI and create silent MSI.

Thank you so much for your quick prompts.

FWIW, here's a tool to find your silent install switches: https://deployhappiness.com/the-ultimate-exe-silent-switch-finder/

It works with .msi and .exe files.

Here's what looks like what you asked:

That said, I can tell from my own experience that repackaged installations made even by professional tools like Installshield adminstudio and wise package studio, still need further adjusting, which in turn requires being intimately familiar with the structure of the MSI - except perhaps the most trivial cases like installing one single file.
