Hi @Hclee

 

 

 

I think if You use the right command options for the MSI call then there will be no difference.

 

I suppose that finally the Setup.exe will not do anything different.

Installing using setup.exe will install any prerequisites.

 

Installing using .msi will *not* install any prerequisites.

What are you talking about as a prerequisite?

On the Solid Edge install media if you browse to the "Solid Edge" folder, under this you will see the folder "ISSetupPrerequisites".  These are the prerequisites that Solid Edge installs.

 

If your system does not have the required software prerequisites, the Solid Edge setup.exe will then attempt to install those prerequisites from within this "ISSetupPrerequisites" folder.

 

In this " ISSetupPrerequisites" folder are the following software:

 

  • Key Shot
  • .NET 4.5
  • Silverlight
  • Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable
