Silent BIOS update - Setup is unable to load a setup DLL

Hello

I try to update the BIOS and Network card firmware, while running Windows server 2003. I can do the update manually, by running cpqupdate.exe. However I need to perform the update silently.

To update the BIOS, I put this line in a batch file:
C:\FW\BIOS\cpqsetup.exe /s /f

The batch file exits quickly, with no error. When I check the errorlog in C:\CPQSYSTEM\log this is outputted:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Setup Session Beginning 1/21/2008 - 9:27:58 AM
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Command Line Parameters Given: /force /silent


Setup is unable to load a setup DLL

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
End Session
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Proliant Support Pack v.8.00 is installed.
I can't find any information on which DLL is missing. I've searched the internet with no luck.

Thankyou

I figured it out. Didn't need to unpack the cpXXXXXX.exe files.


D:\FW\NIC\cp008346.exe /s /f
D:\FW\BIOS\cp008692.exe /s /f

-did the trick
