I need to silently install the Alerter software on computers in our Network, is this possible?
For installation, use the
/qb switches. Use the
/l* switch to produce a log file. You can provide named options (or "properties") at the end of the command line; which properties are supported depends on the package. For example, this command:
msiexec /i c:\downloads\livehelpnow.msi
...is how you install LiveHelpNow Alerter
Perhaps the most important common property is the REBOOT property, which you can use to suppress any automatic reboot the MSI package might try to perform. So in general, you want to provide the
REBOOT=ReallySuppress parameters to
msiexec can do many other things, like uninstall software or apply patches. Neat, huh? Too bad nobody uses it.
