I apologize for the delay in a response. We have verified that there is an issue where the MSI file detects the license key, but not the user name and company. We are currently looking into this issue.
I have sent you a private message to further assist you with this issue.
Jon, does the same .msi bug apply to using assisted install.txt/setup.exe?
I need help creating an automated FMP 11 install by using Assisted Install.txt.
I have read the instructions posted at http://help.filemaker.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/6951/kw/kinsfm/related/1
I have modified my assisted install.txt file. I correctly edited the command line in setup.ini to allow for a silent install. However when I click setup.exe, the installer prompts for alll the information that is in my assisted install.txt file. Does setup.ini also need to be modified to read from assisted install.txt and launch setup.exe? Setup.ini references FileMaker Pro 11.msi
I apprectiate any help regarding this issue as I need to get this installer created as soon as possible.
I'm not sure, as I haven't tried it. However, setup.exe does utilise the MSI file further along the instalation process, so it may be causing the problem...
Have you had success using this method with older versions of filemaker? I know the instructions haven't changed, so if it works on v9 or v10, but not v11, you can be pretty sure it's not your fault!
So what are my options for creating an automated install? I have limited knowledge when it comes to creating automated installers. Which is why the assisted install.txt was a viable option for a noob such as myself. I don't know anything about editing a .msi in Orca. I need to install FMP11 on 300+ PC's. Can you guys provide me a working solution for creating some type of automated installation?
No further update at this time. This is definitely recognized as an issue with FileMaker Pro 11. It does work properly in previous releases.
Thank you for your post.
Just to clarify, the assisted install.txt file works correctly. The problem is with the .msi file where the username and organization are not picked up. For more information about assisted install, see Knowledge Base Article #6951 at:
