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.
To make a silent installation start the msi file, 32-bit or 64-bit, from the command line with the following parameters for the msi package: msiexec /i QvsSetupRedist.msi MYUSERNAME=domain\username MYPASSWORD=password /l*v log.txt /qn and for the exe file: msiexec /i QvsSetupRedist.exe MYUSERNAME=domain\username MYPASSWORD=password /l*v log.txt /qn where domain\username is the domain and username of the user you wish the QlikView Server/Publisher services to run as, password is the password of that user, /l*v creates a log for the installation and /qn makes the installation silent.
Adding this to the above issue. I am getting this error message when i enter domain\username and password after opening qlikview enterprise management console. May i know what this below error message means???
You don't normally need the msi file. After running the *.exe file the installation is complete. The msi file is only required if you are trying to push an install with something like SDS. Is that what you are trying to do?
Thanks for you reply. My i know what do you mean by SDS here.
I will explain you what exactly i need. I have completed the design the application. Now i want to deploy/publish the developed application in to web/local so that others in peer can access the application in their web browser.
Still if you have any doubts please do let me know.
You mean to say that i need to add userid and password while installing the server or do mean to add the userid and password in the windows server. I have installed the server in windows xp and not windows server. Do i need to install windows if i want to deploy the application???
Below is the way i added the userid and password. And later i used the same when opening the qlikview management console. That time only i got the error message.
If you need anymore clarity on my request do let me know.
