PackageForTheWeb is an InstallShield-packaged application contained in a self-contained, self-extracting file . You create a Setup .iss file and use it in almost the same way as described in the previous section. The difference is that you must use the /a command-line option to pass the command-line options to the setup program after the file extracts its contents . For example, a file that you downloaded called Prog, exe will expand its contents into the temporary folder and then run Setup . exe when finished. To pass command-line options to Setup . exe, you must use the /a command-line option . The following procedure demonstrates how this extra option changes the steps.
To create an InstallShield PackageForTheWeb response file, perform the following steps:
1. Run the setup program using the /a /r command-line options: Type setup.exe /a /r. This creates a Setup .iss file based on the way you configure the installation as you step through the setup program. The Setup .iss file is in %SystemRoot% .
2. Copy Setup .iss from %SystemRoot% to the folder containing the package.
3. Run the setup program using the /a /s command-line options: Type setup.exe /a /s . The setup program runs silently using the responses in the Setup .iss file.
