I am trying to script the installation of the web deployment service (WebDeploy_x64_en-US). There is a quiet flag (/quiet), however it does not install the remote management service by default. I did a "WebDeploy_x64_en-US /?" but I can't see any command line argument for selecting features.

Does any one know how make to WebDeploy_x64_en-US.msi install all the features quietly?

I had to add LicenseAccepted="0" to get it to install.

msiexec /i c:\path\to\WebDeploy_x64_en-US.msi ADDLOCAL=ALL /qn /norestart LicenseAccepted="0"

Silent install command line, with all features:

msiexec /i c:\path\to\WebDeploy_x64_en-US.msi ADDLOCAL=ALL /qn /norestart

This doesn't work. It just hangs. I think it's because the EULA isn't automatically accepted. – GregB Sep 22 '14 at 19:15
@GregB I suspect you are right about the EULA. I have experienced something very similar recently with Windows SDK. – Arnold Zokas Nov 23 '14 at 16:28
I posted an answer with the LicenseAccepted parameter. – GregB Dec 3 '14 at 2:33
So in a build setting how would i know when the install is done to move on to the next step of the build? – Rod May 28 '15 at 20:16
In addition to comment question before this, i had the directory path wrong for the silent install but didn't see any indication in event viewer or anywhere that it was wrong. I just happen to take a 2nd look and notice it. – Rod May 28 '15 at 21:14
