With the Advanced Installation for Windows®, you can perform specialized installations on Windows® based Operating Systems requiring no user input.
The following command line arguments are accepted by the SysInfo™ installer:
|/h||Print usage/help information and then exit.||/h|
|/S||Perform silent installation without displaying any installation windows or asking the user for any input. Note that this is a capital S. A lower case s will not be recognized.||/S|
|LICENSEFILE=||Specify the name of the license file to install.||LICENSEFILE=C:\Temp\license.mcl|
|PACKAGES=||Specify the list of component packages to install. These are the values found in the Choose Components screen of the GUI installation.||PACKAGES=Base,Agent,Doc,GUI|
|TARGETDIR=||Specify the directory under which the product should be installed.||TARGETDIR=C:\Program Files\MagniComp\SysInfo|
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:
arch.exe /S TARGETDIR=
For example, to install the
x86 distribution with the
components and specify a license file you would run:
mcsysinfo-9-H14-win-x86.exe /S PACKAGES=Base,Agent LICENSEFILE=C:\Temp\license.mcl
