I tried this but it did not work on Windows 7.

I would like to install Visual Studio 2008 from a batch file on Windows 7. We can assume I have the .iso file downloaded already.


Mount the iso

Find the installer and experiment with different switches.

If it's an MSI, try /qn or /quiet and it might need /norestart

InstallShield uses /s and if it calls more installers then try /s /a /s or /s /v"/qn" or some combination depending on how the installer is setup.
