    I was able to successfully Package this,

    Critical Steps include modifying the default settings.ini file in the INSTALLATION_22_0_17_0 source folder and changing

    [Threshold]
    Hours=1

    to

    [Threshold]
    Hours=100000  ( The Installer compares up time to this and fails if the uptime it greater than the threshold. )

     

    Next Create a silent install ini file and copying it before running the installer.

    Example : WS_Silent.ini

    [configuration]
    Language=ENU
    approvelegalagreement = yes
    country = US
    installtype = standalone
    shortcut = no
    autolaunchworldship = no

     

    When Creating the Deployment Package Step 1 would be to copy your new WS_Silent.ini file to the target computer in a standard directory. 

    I used c:\temp\

    ( This will not work with a relative path.  ) 

     

    Step 2 would be to install the program stage the INSTALLATION_22_0_17_0 source folder with modified settings.ini file

    Select the Setup.exe 

    and add extra parameters of  /s /i c:\temp\WS_Silent.ini  /l c:\temp\ups.log 

    and check the include Entire Directory

     

    Good Luck everyone !

    I realize this thread is more than a year old at this point, but I am unable to get this working. I do not have a default settings.ini file as mentioned in your solution above. I simply have an executable file. Could you possibly post the contents of the ini file?

    I am attempting to deploy version 2020 of Worldship and have created the silent install ini file as you listed. Hoping there is a further solution for the remainder. Thanks for your help in advance.

    Jason,

    Run the WS2020_23_8.exe you downloaded and it will create the Installation directory I usually exit after it extracts the contents and tells me to reboot. 

    In the INSTALLATION_23_0_8_0 folder it creates you need to modify the settings.ini file and re-save it.

    Next Create the PDQ Package around the setup.exe in the INSTALLATION_23_0_8_0 folder with the flags above.

    I'm still unable to get this to work properly. It errors out part way through the installation just saying "silent mode option flag found." Thank you anyway for your help. I'm not going to continue trying to work on this at this point.
