QvPlugInReDist.exe silent installation

I need to create an installation package that does not prompt the user for the language, but instead the language property of the installation package passes the value of 'English' to the installation process. Has anyone attempted this?

Look at MSI packagers. I have used custom MSIs on prior versions of QV without any issues.

The recommended procedure to do silent installs of the plugin without prompting users for language selections etc. follows.

After downloading and running the QvPlugInRedist.exe, the msi package will be placed on your computer.

Go to "My Computer", from the menu click "Tools" -> "Folder Options" -> "View"-tab.
· Click the radio button for "Show hidden files and folders"
· Uncheck "Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)".

Click "Ok" to apply changes and exit folder options.

Go to the temp-directory, "C:\Documents and Settings\(USER)\Local Settings\Temp" and
find the .msi package that corresponds with the time you ran the installer. Please note
that the file size will be slightly smaller than the original .exe installer file size.
The .msi package will have a somewhat cryptic name. Copy the extracted .msi package
to another folder on your computer and give it a valid name, preferably the same as the
.exe installer but keep the .msi file extension.

Example: Copy and rename the file to C:\QvPluginSetup.msi

Then go to Start -> Run ->
msiexec /i "C:\QvPluginSetup.msi" ALLUSERS=1 /quiet

Below is the reference of the document which i am refering to.

QlikView Server/Publisher

The QlikView Server is now installed on your computer. In order to activate it, you
need to complete a few further steps.
Obtaining the MSI package
If you need the msi package for installation you have to extract it from the
exe file.
1 Start the installation from the exe file and let the first dialog open.
2 In the temp folder in C:\Documents and Settings\username\
Local Settings, or C:\Users\username\App-
Data\Local depending on you operating system, you will find the
msi file under a random name, e.g. ed34g.msi.
3 Copy the msi file to a location of your choice.
4 Exit the exe installation.
5 Install using the msi (see below for silent installation). See also
Deploying MSI packages with Group policies in Appendix D.

I found the msi in this folder: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Wise Installation Wizard

So the correct action would be to start the exe and wait for die Wise-Wizard to extract the msi and then copy the msi from that folder to another location.
