Hi,

I'm currently working on deployment framework for BizTalk Server 2009 into server. May I know is there any way to skip the UI (with Step 1-3) asking for domain access, bindings.xml, etc? Can I do all the 3 settings in batch file?

Example where batch file called SetEnvUI.exe in ServerDeployWizard.bat:

@echo off
IF EXIST EnvironmentSettings\SettingsFileGenerator.xml (
Framework\DeployTools\EnvironmentSettingsExporter.exe EnvironmentSettings\SettingsFileGenerator.xml EnvironmentSettings )
Framework\DeployTools\SetEnvUI.exe InstallWizard.xml Framework\ServerDeploy.bat %1

Thanks

This has previously come up in several threads.  SetEnvUI.exe just sets environment variable values -- you'll find the environment variable names in your InstallWizard.xml file.  MSBuild automatically sees all environment variables as properties.

Here's one of the recent threads:

Thanks,
