Installation without User Input

Using this procedure you can install SysInfo™ on Windows® systems silently and without any user input. No installation window will be displayed.

This type of installation can be run from any Windows® command prompt or via any other means of launching commands such as from Microsoft® System Management Server (SMS) or other management platform. Please note that SysInfo™ does not provide any reporting data to these management platforms, but can easily be installed and managed as an installed application.

The following command line options can be used for a silent, no user input installation:

    /S TARGETDIR=dir

For example, to install the x86 distribution with the Base and Agent components and specify a license file you would run:

mcsysinfo-6.0-GA-win-x86.exe /S PACKAGES=Base,Agent LICENSEFILE=C:\Temp\license.mcl
