This article explains how to achieve more than one Oracle Application Server silent installation using a shell script (Batch file) on Windows platforms, without getting any collapse or confusion in terminal child processes.

The main concern is that the silent installer command open a new shell terminal child window and the Operating System moves to the second command, without waiting for the first installation to finish. So its important to be sure that tasks are done in the right order. This way, you can run two or more dependent silent installation commands in the same batch script. For example you may want to install a basic Application Server installation silently, then immediately apply a patchset silently as well.

This note is Windows specific. Normal behavior in LINUX/UNIX is that the parent shell terminal will pause until the child shell terminal processes are done. Therefore there are no further requirements/actions for a LINUX/UNIX silent installation.
