We are trying to create a 'silent install' for Microsoft® Project (MSP).  The contents of the mspsetup.exe must first be extracted in order to run additional command line switches.


The mspsetup.exe is available under the Account Settings page in the CA PPM application. To extract the contents, you must first run the setup with a "/a" switch from a command line. Once this is run, you will be prompted to select a destination for the extraction. When it is fully extracted, there will be an CA Clarity PPM Microsoft Project Interface.msi. file along with additional MST files in the extracted location. From here you can run the setup with the additional switches needed for the silent or network installation.

Additional information on performing this type of installation can be found in the CA PPM Installation Guide.
