InstallAnywhere: can the setup be silently installed ?

Hello all,

Is there some way to install IA silently on Windows, so its installation can be automated ?

I could not find a way...
I'm trying to automate the setup of our windows build server, but at the moment I still need to log into it to be able to install IA.

I hope to have missed something, because I can not understand why in 2022 we would still be required to click on a continue button to setup a software...

thanks for any advice.

To silently install IA you need to use a installer.properties file like this one:

# Thu Sep 08 13:38:59 UTC 2022

# Replay feature output

# ---------------------

# This file was built by the Replay feature of InstallAnywhere.

# It contains variables that were set by Panels, Consoles or Custom Code.

INSTALLER_UI=silent

#Choose Install Folder

#---------------------

USER_INSTALL_DIR=C:\\Program Files\InstallAnywhere 2022

#Choose Install Set

#------------------

CHOSEN_FEATURE_LIST=IA-Designer,IA-CmdLine,IA-TestAuto,IA-JDBC

CHOSEN_INSTALL_FEATURE_LIST=IA-Designer,IA-CmdLine,IA-TestAuto,IA-JDBC

CHOSEN_INSTALL_SET=Typical

#Choose Shortcut Location

#------------------------

USER_SHORTCUTS=C:\\ProgramData\\Microsoft\\Windows\\Start Menu\\Programs\\InstallAnywhere
 
 
 

I'm not sure CHOSEN_FEATURE_LIST and CHOSEN_INSTALL_FEATURE_LIST are needed

but I could silently install IA2018 and IA2022 and also the Hotfix and/or Service PAck
