Unattended Install without Best Practice Analyzer RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    I'm installing the latest version of the Power Tools unattended using msiexec.exe. However, the installation fails if PowerShell isn't installed on the machine. Is it possible to suppress the Best Practice Analyzer from being installed from the command-line?

  • Hello William,

     

          Could you please try the following command line.

     

          msiexec /i tfpt.msi ADDLOCAL=PROCESSEDITOR,CLI,VSIP,CHECKINPOLICIES,BUILDTESTTASK /qb /l*v install.log

     

         It specifies which “Feature” should be installed and excludes BPA

     

        Thanks.

  • Excellent information.

    However I get an error when trying to use this. I removed the PROCESSEDITOR since I do not want my users to have that, and then I get an error: "Internal Error 2711. BUILDTESTTASK" The log file says that BUILDTESTTASK is not found in feature table.

     

    I am running the TFS2008 Power Tools.

     

    When I removed the BUILDTESTTASK and just ran

    msiexec /i tfpt.msi ADDLOCAL=CLI,VSIP,CHECKINPOLICIES /qp /l*v install.log

    it worked just fine...

     

    Thankful for any help!
