Hi, the file FolderStructure.txt in the .zip package outlines where you need to extract the files in order for the script to find what it needs (like setup.exe).

Brianlala,

Thanks for your response. I am little confused about this file FolderStructure.txt

\SP2010\AutoSPInstaller\AutoSPInstaller.ps1
\SP2010\AutoSPInstaller\config.xml
\SP2010\AutoSPInstaller\Launch.bat
\SP2010\AutoSPInstaller\README.rtf
\SP2010\AutoSPInstaller\SetInputs.xml
\SP2010\AutoSPInstaller\Hotfixes\
\SP2010\AutoSPInstaller\Hotfixes\Windows6.0-KB971831-x64.msu
\SP2010\AutoSPInstaller\Hotfixes\Windows6.1-KB976462-v2-x64.msu
\SP2010\AutoSPInstaller\Hotfixes\Windows6.1-KB976462-x64.msu
\SP2010\LanguagePacks\<ServerLanguagePack_XX-XX.exe>

Assume I unzipped files on d:\Installer\ folder and SPS 2010 installation files on d:\software\SPS2010\ folder, should I change the above file to

d:\Installer\SP2010\AutoSPInstaller\AutoSPInstaller.ps1
d:\Installer\SP2010\AutoSPInstaller\config.xml
d:\Installer\SP2010\AutoSPInstaller\Launch.bat
d:\Installer\SP2010\AutoSPInstaller\README.rtf
d:\Installer\SP2010\AutoSPInstaller\SetInputs.xml
d:\Software\SPS2010\setup.exe

Thanks in advance,

Actually the simplest thing to do would be to unzip the files to D:\Software\SP2010 (update your existing path if possible) so they're nested within the path of your existing binary installer files. The idea is that if setup.exe is in folder D:\Software\SP2010\, then the AutoSPInstaller files should be in D:\Software\SP2010\AutoSPInstaller.

Hi Brian,

Thanks again for your response! If that is the case, I have existing binary installer binary installer files under D:\Software\SP2010\ including D:\Software\SP2010\setup.exe

and have AutoSPInstaller files unzipped to D:\Software\SP2010\AutoSPInstaller\ folder including D:\Software\SP2010\AutoSPInstaller\Launch.bat  

Should I define the following file path in FolderStructure.txt?

D:\Software\SP2010\AutoSPInstaller\AutoSPInstaller.ps1
D:\Software\SP2010\AutoSPInstaller\config.xml
D:\Software\SP2010\AutoSPInstaller\Launch.bat
D:\Software\SP2010\AutoSPInstaller\README.rtf
D:\Software\SP2010\AutoSPInstaller\SetInputs.xml
D:\Software\SPS2010\setup.exe

Thanks in advance,

FolderStructure.txt is just a guide, and not actually used as an input file. Your folders above appear correct except the last line, the path to setup.exe should be D:\Software\SP2010\setup.exe.
