Re: Silent Installation Parameters

Hello Jerry,

I just looked it up in the documentation of the installer and it says that the option for that is "/S".

However I foresee a problem as the installer needs the username and password in order to be able to install a background service.
You cannot pass the username and password as parameters at the moment.
Would adding support for that help you?

Re: Silent Installation Parameters

Hi Wil,

Thank's for your reply.
unfortunately does the /s option not start a silent installation.
If there would be a way in the future to install it silent, why not.

kind regards
Jerry

Re: Silent Installation Parameters

Hello Jerry,

Sorry I wasn't very clear about one important detail. The option is case sensitive.
So "/s" does not run the install silently whereas "/S" does.
I just ran a test here with /S and it worked, but as I mentioned earlier the problem is that you still need to provide user credentials as otherwise you have a broken install.

edit: If adding credentials via the command line helps you for your needs then I can add that for you (not today, but in the next week) and I can let you try a private build to see if that works for you.

Re: Silent Installation Parameters

Jerry,

FYI, support for /USER="Username"  (or /u) and /PASSWORD="Password" (or /p) has been added to the installer.
Those options are case insensitive.
Now looking into making the /S option case insensitive as well.

If you want to test this then send me an email at support@vimalin.com
