Issue 31048  —   Uniface 9.6.06 - Silent install of Uniface Deployment Suite does not work

Status:   Solved in 10.2.01

Solution available in patch(es):      MX07    MG01

Description:

 Summary:
 Uniface can be installed without user interaction.
 This so-called silent install can be achieved by running
 setup.exe from the command line with command line parameters.
 Since version 9.6.06 however, it is not possible anymore to
 install the Deployment Suite using silent install.

 Note - The silent install option does work correctly
        for the Development Suite.

 Environment:
  +Uniface: Version 9.6.06 (and up)
  +Operating System: Windows
  +Database: DBMS independent

 Symptoms:
 It is possible to install Uniface APS products without user
 interaction by running setup.exe from the command line with
 command line parameters. Since version 9.6.06 however,
 it is not possible anymore to install the Deployment Suite
 using silent install.

 This so-called silent install option does work correctly
 for the Development Suite.

 How to reproduce:
 ----------------
 1. Create an installation parameters file.
    a. Run the uniface_setup\w32\setup.exe program from the
       command line, with the -r (record) options.

       For example:
         C:\uniface_setup\w32\setup.exe -r -f1"D:\setup.iss"

    b. Choose the 'Deployment Suite'

    Note - As you follow the prompts of the setup program, these
           options create a file called setup.iss (on D:\).

 2. To silently install the product on a different machine,
    run the setup program with the -s (silent) option.

    For example:

      > C:\uniface_setup\w32\setup.exe -s -f1"D:\setup.iss"

 Actual result:
   - The Setup program will run briefly and finishes without
     installing the Deployment suite.
   - When checking the setup.log file then the
     ResultCode -3 can be found (ResultCode 03 means:
     Required data not found in the Setup.iss file).

   Please note that the silent install will work correctly
   when installing the Development suite.

 Expected result:
   The Setup runs without errors and completes the
   installation successfully (just like the recorded
   installation session)

Workaround:

 There is no workaround for this problem.
