Creating the Script to Generate the .iss File and Install SQL Server

The script we will create in this article is the first of the lower-level scripts; in other words, the script that generates the .iss file and then installs SQL Server.


We create our own .iss file for every installation of SQL Server (that is, every time the script is called) so that we can pass in different values for each installation of SQL Server; for example, the registered user name or the folder path to install the data the transaction logs to.

This allows us to customize each installation for every installation without having to manually modify the .iss file.
