Hello,
 
I am trying to run a silent install (no upgrade) of v 8.3.3 using the
following switches:
 
msiexec.exe /log errorfile.log /i postgresql-8.3.msi /qn
ADDLOCAL=server,psql,docs SERVICEDOMAIN="%COMPUTERNAME%"
SERVICEPASSWORD="admin" SUPERPASSWORD="admin"
 
The install fails with the following error in the logfile:
MSI (s) (F4:F0) [09:13:01:403]: Product: PostgreSQL MUI Wrapper 8.3 --
Installation failed.
This same message appears in the Application Event Log.
 
Based on a post on the installer mailing list, I tried using
postgresql-8.3-int.msi for the silent install, and received the
following error:
MSI (s) (F4:08) [09:01:53:051]: Product: PostgreSQL 8.3 -- Installation
failed.
The Event Log also said to use the "main MSI" file for an install.
 
Running the install from the main MSI directly works just fine.  If at
all possible, I'd like to run an install with no user interactive
whatsoever.  Is there something wrong with the properties I set?
 
Thanks,
