Unattended Install of Client Components RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to do an unattended install of the client components for SLQ2005.  I have read the document on doing a install from the command prompt but when I use the "ADDLOCAL" switches I get some components that I don't require.  For example, I am using the following command to run the setup -  "start /wait <path>\setup.exe ADDLOCAL=Client_Components,SQL_Tools90,Connectivity".  When I look at the Add/Remove Programs list I can see that it has installed "MSXML 6.0 Parser", "SQL 2005 Backward Compatibilty" and "Office 2003 Web Components".  The only components I require are the "SQL Support Files", "SQL Server Native Client" and " CLient Tools".  If I run "start /wait <path>\setup.exe REMOVE=SQLXML,TOOLS_BC_DEP" it will remove "Office 2003 Web Components" and  "SQL 2005 Backward Compatibilty" but not the "MSXML 6.0 Parser".  How can I get rid of this?

    Thanks for any help.
