    I saw that it is possible to silently install disk director 10 by extracting the .msi and the use the following command-line:

    start /wait msiexec.exe /i z:\packages\acronis\DiskDirectorSuite.msi ADDLOCAL=ALL PIDKEY=xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx /norestart /qb-!

    The Problem is during the installation the DiskDirectorSuite installer launches the OS Selector Setup (which let's me upgrade/reinstall, activate, uninstall, ...) because it detects an existing OS Selector partition. But I want to install the package silently because I use a deployment system and this means skipping the OS Selector window (no matter if there is already an existing OS Selector installation on any partition or not). Is there a parameter to do this for example VERYSILENT=1 or SKIPOSSELECTOR=1?

    Or is it possible to choose the action for the OS Selector Setup like OSSELECTOR=REINSTALL or OSSELECTOR=ACTIVATE or something? If not this would be a really great feature for the next release don't you think?

    Thank you

    Hello Marc,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Partition and Disk Managing Software.

    I'm afraid that it is not possible to skip Acronis OS Selector installation or choose other actions for the program in Acronis Disk Director Suite 10.0 silent installation.

    I have forwarded your suggestions to Acronis Development Team. They will consider it certainly and probably such a feature will be implemented in future versions of Acronis Disk Director Suite.

    Thank you.
