My problem is that I recently deployed Microsoft SQL server 2008 R2 Express to create a database for a locally hosted application to access. To save myself time I used the /CONFIGURATIONFILE option to set it all up to run from the command line so I could stript the installation from soup to nuts.

I now am trying to use the same ini file with Micro SQL Server 2012 RC0 and the thing won't install quietly. I continually get the Window to configure installation even if I use /Q="true", /QS="true", and I even tried /QUIET="true" but the window continues to open.

Is there a way to force MS SQL Server 2012 RC0 to install quietly or is that functionality that is not in this release?

Have you specified the rest of the required command line parameters for a quiet install for instance IACCEPTSQLSERVERLICENSETERMS?

This help page covers the required parameters for a quiet command line install.

Call setup.exe with your configuration file and "/q" and in the configuration file use INDICATEPROGRESS="False" – Jason Cumberland Jan 17 '12 at 18:33
