Installing in silent mode


You can install Mediaplus on client machines automatically in silent mode.

Step 1: Genrating the dialog box answers file

Run the SETUP.EXE file with the options -r and -f1 .

  •  the -r option writes the silent setup file (.iss).
  •  the -f option allows you to specify the path of the to the compiled script.
  •  For example: \\server\MediaplusClient\Setup.exe -r -f1"c:\temp\setup.iss"

    Step 2 : Run the installation program in silent mode

    Run the SETUP.EXE file with the options -s, -SMS and -f1.

  •  the option -s indicates that the installation must run in silent mode.
  •  the option -SMS helps you to manage the installation via the network.
  •  the option -f1 allows you to specify the path to the silent setup file that the installation program must use.
  •  For example : \\server\MediaplusClient\Setup.exe -s -SMS -f1"\\server\MediaplusClient\Setup.iss"
