View Full Version : Create redistributable install package?
April 30th, 2009, 03:41 PM
I have 110 users on v2.7. To install them, I built a .rar package that contained a .bat file, the exe file, and an xml file. I was able to unrar the file and have it automatically do a silent install and ask for restart. I am unable to find the instructions on doing this for version 4. It seems as if the command line switches are different as well.

It looks like I had overlooked the Copy function within the Package manager. This has allowed me to export a redistributable package. However, regardless of the /qn or /qb! command line switch, the install interface comes up requiring clicks on Next, next, etc. I left the command line switch default to begin with and then added the /qb!.. same result both times. I want a silent install as I had with v2.7. The less the end user has to do, the better!

You can export out your desired settings to a file named cfg.xml and so long as it is in the same directory that the msi package runs from, it will use it for the settings. That way you can keep using your batch script method to invoke msiexec with the /qb! switch so users can only see a progress bar.
