The setup program supports a wide range of command line switches. These switches can be used to run the installation without user interaction or as a completely silent installation.
When the setup is run in silent mode then you need a way to specify the selections, you want to make. This is controlled through a range of command line switches supported by the installer.
|/SP-||Disables the startup prompt.|
|/SILENT, /VERYSILENT||Instructs Setup to be silent or very silent. When Setup is silent the wizard and the background window are not displayed but the installation progress window is. When a setup is very silent this installation progress window is not displayed. If a restart is necessary and the ‘/NORESTART’ command isn’t used (see below) and Setup is silent, it will display a Reboot now? message box. If it’s very silent it will reboot without asking.|
|/SUPPRESSMSGBOXES||Instructs Setup to suppress message boxes. Only has an effect when combined with ‘/SILENT’ and ‘/VERYSILENT’.|
|/NOCANCEL||Prevents the user from canceling during the installation process, by disabling the Cancel button and ignoring clicks on the close button. Useful along with ‘/SILENT’ or ‘/VERYSILENT’.|
|/NORESTART||Instructs Setup not to reboot even if it’s necessary.|
|/RESTARTEXITCODE=exit code||Specifies the custom exit code that Setup is to return when a restart is needed. Useful along with ‘/NORESTART’. Also see Setup Exit Codes.|
|/DIR=”x:\dirname”||Overrides the default directory name displayed on the Select Destination Location wizard page. A fully qualified pathname must be specified.|
|/GROUP=”folder name”||Overrides the default folder name displayed on the Select Start Menu Folder wizard page.|
|/NOICONS||No icons are installed in the start menu, on the desktop, and in the Quick Launch bar.|
|/LOG=filename||The setup program writes a log to the specified file name. If the file exists, it will be overwritten.|
|/COMPONENTS=”comma separated list of component names“||Using this command line parameter causes setup to automatically select a list of a components.
Only the specified components will be selected; the rest will be deselected.
If a component name is prefixed with a “*” character, any child components will be selected as well. If a component name is prefixed with a “!” character, the component will be deselected.Available components are:
