Silently install Windows Media sdk RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to figure out how to silently install wmformat11sdk.exe

     

    I tried

    Start /Wait wmformat11sdk.exe /q

    but after it unpacks, it prompts me for next...and everything else.

     

    I tried

    Start /Wait wmformat11sdk.exe /q /c:"wmformatsdk.msi /q"

    but it says "Error creating process ..wmformatsdk.msi /q. Reason: C:\WINDOWS\system32\advpack.dll"

     

    So when it unpacks to a temporary location, there is a file advpack.dll in that directory, so why can't it figure it out?

  • Hi,

    I downloaded the Windows Media Format SDK and perform a test, It can be installed silently successfully, the following are the detail steps:

    1.    Open CMD as administrator.

    2.    Run: wmformat11sdk.exe /t:<location to release the temporary installation file> /q /c

    3.    Run: msiexec /I “temporary folder\WMFormatSDK.msi” /qn

    Hope this helps.
