Setup Automation and Parameters


Recommended Posts

Hello Zak,

 

Could you describe, which parameters are possible for an unattanded setup?

 

We found the tni-setup.exe /SILENT and /RUN for an unattended setup with starting TNI after the Setup.

 

Does the c:\Program Files (x86)\Total Network Inventory 2\unins000.exe /SILENT uninstall TNI silent as well?

Well, after try and error testing, we found some further information:

 

TNI is using the Inno Setup routine: Here are a few Parameters, that we use:

tni-setup.exe" /SILENT /MERGETASKS="!desktopicon" (This will not create an Icon on the Desktop)

 

There are a still a few questions:

 

1: What is the Inno Setup Task for the quicklaunchicons? (is it "quicklaunchicon")

 

2: During the uninstall, there is a message box asking for sending Feedback. It appears all the time even with

"%PROGRAMFILES(x86)%\Total Network Inventory 2\unins000.exe" /SILENT

or

"%PROGRAMFILES(x86)%\Total Network Inventory 2\unins000.exe" /VERYSILENT

How can we deactivate this box during scripted uninstall?

Hi Karel,

 

You can find the parameters of the installer and uninstaller in the Inno Setup documentation:

http://www.jrsoftware.org/ishelp/index.php?topic=setupcmdline

http://www.jrsoftware.org/ishelp/index.php?topic=uninstcmdline

 

Indeed, /SILENT and /VERYSILENT can be used, as well as /MERGETASKS.

 

1. Yes, "quicklaunchicon" is the task name for the Quick Launch icon.

 

2. Unfortunately it's not possible to deactivate the feedback message box using these command-line switches. It is custom-made and does not rely on these switches. That's something we need to fix.

 

P.S. Why do you need unattended setup and uninstallation of TNI? It is not meant to be mass-installed on each computer...

Hi Zak,

 

 

 

Thanks for the info.

 

 

 

FYI regarding automation: We need to automate the installation process for our administrative computers (4 PCs). We have this requirement for all software products in our company, all installations must be automated by 100%.

 

 

 

It would be great, if you could implement a switch to make the message box disappear.

Hi, 

 

the parameters for automation are not working anymore starting with version 4.2.5. Could you update the possible parameters for silent install and uninstall please..?

 

If I use: 

"%PROGRAMFILES(x86)%\Total Network Inventory 2\unins000.exe" /SILENT

i get the error: 

Runtime Error (at 95:119): Could not call proc.

 

 

Greetings, Karel
