"Hotkeys Features Integration" will not install unattended



We have customized our OS roleout by automating the installation of all the software we wish to provide our Laptop users.
This includes all the Lenovo software components we feel they need. 

One of these is of course the "Hotkeys Features Integration"  package.


Our installation image is currently based on Windows XP Pro, EN, SP3



Now according to the readme, this package supports unattended installation: 


Unattended Install

  This is for system administrators' use only.

  1. Refer to the Manual Install section, and download and extract the file.
  2. In the step 11 of the Installing files section, uncheck the checkbox next
     to "Install ..... now", and then click Finish to cancel installation.
  3. At the command line, execute setup.exe with the /S option.
     Example: [Path where the files were extracted]\setup /S


However, we have found that, while all the other Lenovo packages seem to install fine with the /S option or something similar, this package will not.  

It will return a status code of 0 (completed) but in fact will not have installed anything.


If we then run the install manually from the command line, including the /s option, it seems to install fine.


If I had to guess, it is going wrong because the installer is somehow doing something under the assumption it is being launched in a GUI session. 


However, our customization scripting runs as a background service, and does not actually use a GUI session. It is all done as a background process.  All the other Lenovo packages have no issue with installing under that scenario, but this one, for some reason, does. 


Anyone have any idea how to work around this?

Try the following command line instead and see if it works for you:


setup.exe /S /B /H /m

What's DOS?

Re: "Hotkeys Features Integration" will not install unattended

Thanks for that but it seems to work with just '/S' can you explain what the other switches do. The documentation with the install says to use 'setup.exe /SP- /VERYSILENT /NORESTART /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES' but that doesn't work.
