Run AutoSPInstaller without the Product and Technology Wizard running after the binary install

Hi Guys,

I am trying to use this just purely to setup the environment and install the binaries.. I have commented out the setup farm and validate credentials in the main.ps1 however the SP  Product and Technology Wizard runs as default after the binary install, is there a way of stopping that? as i wanna package it in SCCM and not confuse the other guys?

That's kind of like getting a car just so you can listen to the stereo... In other words, you can probably accomplish what you want with very few lines of script. MS and others provide sample script/command syntax and techniques for simply installing the SharePoint binaries.

For example, the line that installs SP binaries in AutoSPInstaller is really just this:



Start-Process "$env:SPbits\setup.exe" -ArgumentList "/config `"$config`""



Where $env:SPBits is the path to your binaries, and $config is the path to the config.xml file.
