Silent Install CreoView Express Fails

I'm trying to create a silent install for Creo 2.0 M160 and all the client side components.  I'm getting an error on the CreoView Express install:

Invalid Switch - "/vADDLOCAL="ALL""

The syntax for calling the installer in my batch file is:

start /w "\\server\creo_install_files\creo_2_m160\pvx32_64\CreoSetup.exe" /vADDLOCAL="ALL" /qn

This matches what is in the install guide for Creo 2.0 M080.  I do not have the install guide for M160, but the install guide for Creo 3.0 F000 shows the same syntax. I assume the Creo 2.0 M160 syntax should be the same.

Any insight as to what I'm missing?

Figured it out.  There are no quotes around the path to CreoSetup.exe:

start /w \\server\creo_install_files\creo_2_m160\pvx32_64\CreoSetup.exe /vADDLOCAL="ALL" /qn

not

start /w "\\server\creo_install_files\creo_2_m160\pvx32_64\CreoSetup.exe" /vADDLOCAL="ALL" /qn

Is this for Creo or Creo View?  I use that for Creo View.

You can also add this at the end to define the installation directory:

APPLICATIONFOLDER="C:\xxx"

Here are all the options.

Here is the code I use. When you use start with quotes, you need a title in quotes first. I put in blank. This is preferable, in case you have a space in your path.

     start /wait "" "%InstallViewExpress%" /vADDLOCAL="ALL" /qn APPLICATIONFOLDER="%creo_load_point%\View Express\"
