Silent install needed for Visual Basic Express

P: n/a
I am trying to create a silent install for the free version of Visual
Basic Express. Currently I am working on creating an msi, but it keeps
failing to install the program on my virtual
machine. I would like to know if there are any command line parameters
I could pass through to make it install sillently or any way to create
an unattended install. I ask to do this because I have to deploy this
to our offices in overseas. Thanks.

I am trying to create a silent install for the free version of Visual
Basic Express.
Why?
VB Express is a Microsoft product and, as such, I would fully expect
each and every user installing it to have to read and agree to the EULA
that (I assume) it displays during the installation process.
I ask to do this because I have to deploy this to our offices in
overseas.


Are you actually trying to "sneak" VB Express itself onto people's
machines, or are you trying to deploy an Application built /with/ it?
In the latter case, you only need the Framework, not the entire package.

I am trying to install VB Express on about 100 machines in my office
and in a couple offices overseas. I just want to know how to make it a
silent/unattended install. I will be deploying it through AD. I am NOT
trying to deploy an application made with VB.

I will need to deploy this very soon. If there is someone out there
that has done this or that knows how to do this, help would be greatly
appreciated.
