Understanding the response.ini file contents
The data captured in the automatically-generated response.ini file provides a detailed, reliable snapshot of the installation choices made during an interactive installation.
The response.ini file includes:
*A header version number and application details
*Section labels defined by brackets for easy referencing
*Each dialog box comment section identified with the label DESCRIPTION and the specific dialog box title
*Easy-to-read descriptions of the fields of each dialog box
*Only the values captured during the interactive install are stored in the response.ini file; there is no extraneous content
*Dialog boxes that appear in the same order as in the online installation
*A complete list of products installed
The original response.ini file is initially created when you run the Silent installation; it is never overwritten. If you re-run the Silent installation to add products to an existing installation, a new unique response.ini file is created. It is identified as response.ini.1, response.ini.2, response.ini.3, and so forth. These files will be saved to your installation directory.
Note: You can manually add the license addendum file path to the response.ini file by adding the LicenseAddendumFile= and the CompanyName= parameters after the Configuration Count section. The silent installation automatically adds the license and the company name for the license.
