    Hi Vishnu/All,
    I suggest try to use this MS Tool called Orca(for msi) and edit the msi file you have.
    open the Msi in it and look for this property and if its found then try to make this option ‘Continue’ as Default in the msi.
    I’m not sure this might be success but give it a try.


    Hello Vishnu, Please try to answer that help us to identify and help you out.

    – What are the parameters you tried while installing silently ?
    -Are you using default MSI Installation app or custom app.
    – As already suggested by Mohan, Did you tried all.
    – Generate complete logs to check the installation behavior.
    – Whats the observation when triggering the installation manually ? Is asking any additional prompt.


    Hi Vishnu,

    for Msi installation default silent switch is /qn or /q /n
    for Exe installation default silent switch is /S

    but if it is your custom package please check with your packaging team for silent installations


      The silent installation is failing.


        Can you try to install manually by using below cmd, this will create log file of your installation, might you can see some errors in log during the installation process.

        msiexec /i “C:\MyPackage\Example.msi” /qn /L*V “C:\log\example.log”
