SAP Crystal Report 2008 SP5 Unattended Installation Issue


I have tried several times to install Crystal Reports 2008 SP5 Full Installation using the command:

msiexec.exe /i "%dir%\CrystalReports.msi" PIDKEY="xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx" /qb /norestart


%dir% is the full path for the location of the MSI. and PIDKEY is the actual product key.

When the installation occurs, a small pop-up appears displaying progress.

Once this has completed, crystal reports 2008 SP5 appears in the "Add remove programs" but is no-where to be found otherwise.

It appears to only install a folder with a txt file labelled "product id".

Is there something I could be doing wrong regarding this unattended installation?
