I'm trying to bundle the SlimDX .NET 4.0 Runtime in my installer, but I need an MSI package so I can use the /quiet parameter. Is there an MSI package available for the 4.0 runtime? Alternatively is there a command line switch for the 4.0 Runtime installer that allows quiet installation?

Thanks.

Unfortunately there's no MSI for the 4.0 runtime, because MS changed the way the VC runtimes work and disallowed embedding both the x86 and x64 versions into the same installer. For the upcoming release we'll probably just provide separate MSIs for x86 and x64, but until then it should be easy enough to just do the few simple steps in your own installer:

1. Make sure DirectX is installed

2. Make sure the VC10 runtimes are installed

3. Copy the appropriate SlimDX DLL wherever you may need it
