Command-Line Installation Options

Command-Line Installation Options

The FileCenter installer supports a number of command-line switches to help automate the installation process.

Options for the .EXE Installer

The following switches can be used with the EXE installer.

/SILENT

The installer dialog and prompts are not displayed but the installation progress window is.

/VERYSILENT

No dialogs, prompts, or progress windows are displayed.

/ProductKey=#####-#####-#####

Automatically license the software by setting the product key to the key on your license.

/ProductKey1=#####-#####-#####
/ProductKey2=#####-#####-#####
/ProductKey3=#####-#####-#####

If you are licensing multiple FileCenter products, you can enter multple product keys with these ProductKey switches.

/SharedDir="P:\[path_to_settings_folder]"

If using Shared Settings, set the path to the Shared Settings Folder. NOTE: Make sure to use "quotes" around your path if your path includes spaces.

/IsCurrentUser=0

Set IsCurrentUser to 1 to install for Current User. Default: install for All Users. If multiple users are using the same PC, consider installing for Current User so they each have their own settings (in ..\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming). With All Users, there will be only one settings folder (in ..\ProgramData). This means everyone on that PC will be using the same settings and preferences. Also, if you install for Current User, the FileCenter Desktop icon will only appear for the Current User.

/HasRoamingProfile=0

This option is for Terminal Services installations. If you set HasRoamingProfle to 1, then a separate settings folder will be created for each Terminal Services User, just like IsCurrentUser=1. However, unlike an install for Current User, this option will place the FileCenter icon on the Desktop for All Users.

/SkipPDFPrinter=0

Set SkipPDFPrinter=1 to skip the PDF printer installation. Default: run the PDF printer installation.

.EXE Examples

The following example runs the installer silently and sets the product key.

...\FileCenterSetup11.exe /VERYSILENT /ProductKey=#####-#####-#####

The following example runs the installer silently, sets two product keys, and sets the Shared Settings Folder.

...\FileCenterSetup11.exe /VERYSILENT /ProductKey1=#####-#####-##### /ProductKey2=#####-#####-##### /SharedDir="S:\FileCenter Shared Settings"

Options for the .MSI Installer

The FileCenter MSI installation file is just a wrapper around the FileCenter EXE installation file so all the same command line parameters above equally apply. However, there are a few command line switches specifc to the MSI:

quiet

This switch suppresses any MSI-related dialogs.

WRAPPED_ARGUMENTS="[any EXE switches above]"

This swtich allow you to pass any of the EXE paramaters above into the MSI installer. NOTE that any EXE paramters in quotes must be double quoted inside this WRAPPED_ARGUMENTS switch.

.MSI Examples

The following example runs the installer silently and sets the product key.

...\FileCenterSetup11.msi quiet WRAPPED_ARGUMENTS="/VERYSILENT /ProductKey=#####-#####-#####"

The following example runs the installer silently, sets two product keys, and sets the Shared Settings Folder.

...\FileCenterSetup11.msi quiet WRAPPED_ARGUMENTS="/VERYSILENT /ProductKey1=#####-#####-##### /ProductKey2=#####-#####-##### /SharedDir=""S:\FileCenter Shared Settings"""

(Please note the double quotes around the SharedDir value in the last example)
