    I need to run the individual .MSI packages with /qr and /promptreboot options. Is there a way to pass the serial number to the MSI while installing at the command line?

    Hello svdorr,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    I am afraid that you will not be able to do this. Acronis True Image installation procees will prompt you to enter the serial number. This step can not be passed.

    Thank you.

    Yes you can install silently this is what i use from RunOnceEx works great and can be adapted for diskdirector also. just replace xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx with your own serial.

    Code:
    REG ADD %KEY%\1001 /VE /D "Acronis Trueimage v9.0.0.3633" /f
    REG ADD %KEY%\1001 /V 101 /D "CMD /C Start /Wait msiexec.exe /I C:\Install\Acronis_TrueImage9\AcronisTrueImage.msi PIDKEY=\"xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx\" /qn /norestart" /f
    REG ADD %KEY%\1001 /V 102 /D "CMD /C Start /Wait SLEEP.EXE 3" /f
    REG ADD %KEY%\1001 /V 103 /D "Pskill.exe msiexec.exe" /f
    REG ADD %KEY%\1001 /V 104 /D "CMD /C DEL \"%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Desktop\Acronis True Image Home 9.0.lnk\"" /f
    REG ADD %KEY%\1001 /V 105 /D "CMD /C DEL \"%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\Acronis True Image Home 9.0.lnk\"" /f
    REM REG ADD %KEY%\1001 /V 106 /D "CMD /C REG DELETE HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run /v \"Acronis Scheduler2 Service\" /f" /f""
    REM REG ADD %KEY%\1001 /V 107 /D "CMD /C REG DELETE HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run /v \"TrueImageMonitor.exe\" /f" /f""
    REM REG ADD %KEY%\1001 /V 108 /D "CMD /C REG DELETE HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run /v \"AcronisTimounterMonitor\" /f" /f""

    Hello svdorr,

    We are sorry for the delay with the response.

    Please disregard Aleksandr's reply. I believe he misunderstood your question.

    If you need to install Acronis True Image in the so-called "silent mode" you can do it in the way described by urie.

    You may also find this previous thread explaining how to install Acronis True Image upgrade in "silent mode" interesting.

    If you have any further questions concerning Acronis software, please feel free to submit a request for technical support or post any of them on this forum. We will certainly try to help you in resolving any issues.

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    If you wanted to install TrueImageServer silently to another directory other than the default, how would this be done?

    INSTALLDIR="E:\Program Files\Back Up\TrueImage" as a switch does not seem to work.
