InstallShield Standalone Build: Parameters to automate the registration process

InstallShield Standalone Build: Parameters to automate the registration process

Summary:
This article shows how to automate passing the license information to a silent install of the InstallShield Standalone Build (SAB).

Resolution:

  1. Download the InstallShield Standalone Build. For example: InstallShield2021R2StandaloneBuild.exe
  2. Open an Administrator command prompt.
  3. Run the following command:
    InstallShield2021R2StandaloneBuild.exe /S /v/qn /VSERVERNAME=<IPADDRESS OR LICENSE_SERVER_NAME> /VPORTNUMBER=<LICENSE_SERVER_PORT> /VLICENSETYPE=2 /VADDLOCAL=ALL

The following tasks will be completed and the install will be done silently without displaying any wizard:
1. Specifying of concurrent license options
2. Specifying of the license server name
3. Installing of all the features

In the aforementioned command (see above):

  • The value of 1 for the LICENSETYPE property indicates that you are using a node-locked license of the InstallShield SAB.
  • The value of 2 for the LICENSETYPE property indicates that you are using a concurrent license of the InstallShield SAB.
  • The value of 3 for the LICENSETYPE property indicates that you are using a Cloud License Server (CLS) concurrent license of the InstallShield SAB.
