Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 118635] silent install using /GUILEVEL=qn fails with Error 1303
Date Tue, 29 Nov 2011 13:18:39 GMT

I've tried different scenarios on the "clean" VM (Win Server2008 Std x64), it
looks like there is a race condition in accessing C:\Program
Files\ 3\program:

1. installing 3.2.0 (/S /GUILEVEL=qn) and updating it to 3.2.1 silently with
the same switches work ok, for both versions the installation of C++ Runtime is
in the InstallUISequence, therefore is not installed in the installer's silent

2. updating 3.2.1 to 3.3.0 (/S /GUILEVEL=qn) fails with the error 1303. 
BTW, why the installation of the C++ runtimes are hardcoded with the
PARAM_SILENTINSTALL="/QB" (unattended, not silent) switch? In this way , the
totally silent installation of 3.3.0 is impossible as the installation of the
C++ runtimes is bootstrapped from setup.exe (see setup.cpp) and always runs

3. the installation of 3.3.0 (/S /GUILEVEL=qn) on the machine with no previous
OO is successfull.

4. if either 3.2.0 or 3.2.1 are installed, and both C++ redist from OO 3.3.0
redist\ folder are also installed, the silent update to 3.3.0 (/S /GUILEVEL=qn)
fails with error 1303.

5. if either 3.2.0 or 3.2.1 are installed, the update to 3.3.0 is successfull
(unattended, not silent) with /S switch.

In v3.3.0 the /GUILEVEL=qn switch breaks the silent installation.
