I am trying to create a .bat file where (among other things) Python will have to be silently installed.
It needs to be installed to the non-default location "c:\program files\python27". Any idea how this can be done?
I keep getting the 'Help' menu, indicating that something went wrong. I've been fighting with this for like an hour now! :-(
I followed this structure : msiexec /i (yourFile).msi TARGETDIR=C:\YourBin\YourApp
The following does NOT work (I added the cd/md commands later, idem for the /qb)
y:\>set PYTHONDIR="c:\program files\python27"
y:\>cd /d "c:\program files"
y:\>cd /d %temp%
y:\>msiexec /i python-2.7.3 TARGETDIR="%PYTHONDIR%" /qb
 Platform: Windows 7 Enterprise, it that matters.
All right, but apart from the sanitation, the medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, a
fresh water system, and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?
