Thanks for your prompt reply. The user in the post you linked to was stuck trying to automate the FileMaker Pro 11.msi installer. The instructions I read did not mention anything about using the .msi file. I did read the network installation.pdf which stated you can automate the installation by editing the .msi with Orca or a similiar editor application. i didn't want to go that route. I may have misread the help pages, but it seems you have two optins when it comes to creating an automated installation. By using setup.exe w/assisted install.txt or FileMaker Pro 11.msi. Am I mistaken?
Does the same bug apply to setup.exe? I posted the same question over at MSI problems. You can lock this post if needed. I will check the other post for a reply to my question.
