Advanced Arguments

Using the Advanced Arguments feature, you can specify different command line arguments for the wrapped installer depending on the user interface level (UILevel).

An MSI package operates in one of four different user interface levels:

  • None - Completely silent installation.
  • Basic - Simple progress and error handling.
  • Reduced - Authored UI, wizard dialogs suppressed.
  • Full - Authored UI with wizards, progress, errors.

Normally you will want your wrapped installer to run silently in the modes None, Basic, and Reduced.

Advanced arguments are appended to the list of normal fixed arguments if you have set any.

More information on the MSI UILevel is available here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/aa372096(v=vs.85).aspx
