run installation file

csn hi, i want to use ebook to protect my setup program. Therefore, i use one password protected webpage to link and run the setup.exe file using this code- ##RUN('{ebook}/setup.exe').

Now, i need it to install the database engine as well which need to install using following syntax:
dbsetup.exe -s -a -f1 "<path>unattend.iss"
where <path> is the full path to the unattend.iss file.
(The unattend.iss is compile into ebook)
i've try a few code to run it, but it seems that cannot run due to the full path and the -s -a -f1 parameters.

pls help me on it.
millions thanks.

EBookCompiler Try

<A HREF="##RUN('{ebook}\dbsetup.exe -s -a -f1 {quote}{ebook}\unattend.iss{quote}')">Click here</A>

Something along these lines

Maybe dbsetup.exe can't find the unintend.iss file, because of a limitation in dbsetup.exe - in which case you could copy dbsetup.exe and unintend.iss out of the ebook to some place else maybe using FILECOPY etc.
