I tryed to extract it then installing it silently, by using the -s switch but it didnt work. :/

When I try it it initializes setup.exe then within a matter of seconds, it closes it. :/

/extract_all:<path> : Package's files should not be run but simply extracted (InstallScript and InstallScript MSI projects only)

Specifies that a self-extracting package's files should not be run but simply extracted to the location that is specified by <path>.

I hope someone figures it out.

Google Earth uses InstallShield. I did a record mode setup using the '/r' switch, which creates a 'setup.iss' response file in the %WinDir% folder.

GE extracts a couple folders to the %temp% folder, i copied setup.iss to the Disk1 folder and tried running setup with '/s' but its asking for data2.cab which im not sure how to get? :}

As of right now i just repacked it as an msi.

your supposed to extract the installer as I said

in cmd run it like this:

GoogleEarthPro.exe /extract_all:C:

it will extract in C:\ you will find a folder called disk1 and find data2.cab

how did you repack it as a msi?

could you send it to me once you have data2.cab?

put setup.iss in the folder you extracted GoogleEarth.exe to and install silently by using setup.exe /s

I use Google Earth Free, I dont have Google Earth Pro.

Pro comes with full support, why not ask google?

But I tested the method above and can confirm it works for the Free version.

Hi. If it works on Google Earth, then there is no reason why it is not gonna work on the pro version.

By the way, that is a new installshield switch. I don't think I've seen that before. :)

I still don't understand why they didn't use msi for their installer..

ok i just tried it with pro, it would not install using the setup.iss from the Free version. I used the record switch to create a new setup.iss for Pro which works. Same procedure, just a slightly different setup.iss :)

setup.iss for Google Earth Pro
