I have been successful at creating RSP files and getting Oracle to install without requiring the user to input any info...

But I am having an issue with it bringing up a command box and then once the installation is completed, it wants me to press <ENTER>.

We are pushing this out to thousands of machines via SMS and having the user press <ENTER> would be a nightmare as well as most of the installations will take place after hours.


Any idea on how to get rid of the command box and / or not have to press <ENTER>?

Thanks!

How are you executing the command initially?

Have you tried something like:

cmd /c "<Server>\Oracle10g\client\setup.exe -silent -responseFile C:\OraInst\rec.rsp"

or

echo Y |  "<Server>\Oracle10g\client\setup.exe -silent -responseFile C:\OraInst\rec.rsp"

I don't think echo Y will work since they want you to press ENTER and not Y Sad

You may be able to simply use a '.' then, ie:

echo.|  "<Server>\Oracle10g\client\setup.exe -silent -responseFile C:\OraInst\rec.rsp"

will this work considering I'm pretty much putting this command into a shortcut and then running it? I'm not dropping to a command prompt first

The echo won't work thru a shortcut, but you could have the shortcut call a batch file that has the full command in it.

So someone is willing to double-click on the shortcut but just not willing to click Enter when it's done?

That won't work just because we execute it through an automated procedure. None of our users have Admin rights to their machines so we cannot run this as them nor will we have a very high success rate on the deployment if users see a command box... the typical response for users seeing a screen they are not used to is to close it.
