How to Install PeopleTools 8.53 PIA in Console Mode

in PeopleSoft Administration

While installing PIA on my machine for PeopleTools 8.53, I came across a unique situation as shown below.

After running the setup.exe from <PS_HOME>\setup\PsMpPIAInstall and working around the setup procedure, I came across the screen to provide the name of the web profile used to configure the webserver. As you can see from the screenshot below, I did not have any box or option to provide the details. If I pressed next without providing any value, I was thrown an error to provide the password.

So, the workaround I used was to use the console mode instead of GUI mode.

To install PIA in console mode:

1.  Edit C:\PT8.53\setup\PsMpPIAInstall\setup.bat file and change the parameter (marked in red font)
set args=-i gui %args%
to
set args=-i console %args%

2. Double click setup.bat

3. Follow the screenshots pasted below:
