Note the relative path for the setup.iss file:

setup.exe -s /f1.\setup.iss


SD Packages based on InstallShield may fail when run with the '/s' switch,

even though a Green check mark is received in the GUI.
Any of the following parameter combinations may fail as well:

/s + : 	

Also relative paths may give unpredictable results.

The following command line should allow the install to work:

setup.exe /s /f2$rf  

Any additional parameters can be applied after these.

The following command line is also known to work:

setup.exe /s /f1"$ip/1.vol/setup.iss" /f2$rf
