Issue/Introduction

 

 I have trouble using EXE command line options to automate the installation of CA TDM tools.

In example, I’m trying to automate the installation of Javelin but I’m facing an error for which I cannot find a solution. (See details below)

These are the commands I used in command line:  

extracting the files from the EXE:
setup_Javelin_4.8.122.0.exe /extract "D:\Apps\CA\TDM\tmp" /exenoui /exenoupdates

running the MSI in quiet mode:
msiexec /i "d:\Apps\ca\TDM\tmp\setup_Javelin_4.8.122.0.msi" INSTALLDIR="d:\Apps\ca\TDM\Javelin64" /qn /log "d:\apps\ca\tdm\tmp\javelin_install.log"

 

 

Here is the log :
