How do i create silent install , where i don't need to press next button

Hi,

I don't want user interaction while installing the software. Right now  when I push exe file on remote PC , It's asking user to press on "next button" and install it.

It would be appreciate it in advance.

Regards,

Bhuvana

To trigger a silent installer from the command line, use the following command:
installername -i silent

Eg : install.exe -i silent

This will do silent installation if the installer is configured for silent install.
To configure silent installation,
go to InstallAnywhere designer->Installer UI ->Look & Feel Settings-> General UI Settings->
Allowable UI Modes -> Enable silent checkbox.

Hi ,

Is there any other option via command line, because setup.exe is the download by the site(internal).

Thanks,

Re: How do i create silent install , where i don't need to press next button

Hi,

I have used the command "setup.exe -i silent" but the application is not installed properly on my windows server.

can we force to install it or when trying to it manually it will ask

1st  pop-up : Do you want to all this app from unknow publisher to make changes to your device 

clicked on "yes" button

2nd pop-up: installanywhere is preparing to install

3rd pop-up: installanywhere will guide you through the installation of xxx

"next" button

so, I want to all these to be in the command line.

"setup.exe -i silent" won't work for me

 

Thanks,

Bhuvana

Hi Bhuvana,

Your installer is running in GUI mode.
The popups can be avoided with silent mode installation. What error you are getting when you
try setup.exe -i silent?  Can you please share the screenshot of the error displayed?

You were able to enable silent mode in   InstallAnywhere designer->Installer UI ->Look & Feel Settings-> General UI Settings->Allowable UI Modes?

Hi Veentha,

This command "setup.exe -i silent" is not giving any error, but i can see that the software didn't install completely.

Thanks,

Hi Bhuvana,

Will it be possible to share the log file?
To generate the log file:
In InstallAnywhere designer->Project-> General Setting-> Enable Logging -> select yes
Select install checkbox
Select uninstall checkbox
Include Debug output(stderr & stdout) - select yes

In Project->JVM Settings-> Installer Settings ->
Additional Argument -> enter -Dlax.debug.level=4 -Dlax.debug.all=true

Share the log file generated in Logs folder after the silent installation.
