Setup Command Line Parameters

Setup Command Line Parameters.

 

The Setup program accepts optional command line parameters. These can be useful to system administrators, and to other programs calling the Setup program.

See also “Uninstaller Command Line Parameters”.

/SILENT, /VERYSILENT

Instructs Setup to be silent or very silent. When Setup is silent the wizard and the background window are not displayed but the installation progress window is. When a setup is very silent this installation progress window is not displayed.
If a restart is necessary and the ‘/NORESTART’ command isn’t used (see below) and Setup is silent, it will display a “Reboot now?” message box. If it’s very silent it will reboot without asking.

Example:
advtiffeditor_setup.exe /VERYSILENT

/NORESTART

Prevents Setup from restarting the system following a successful installation, or after a Preparing to Install failure that requests a restart. Typically used along with /SILENT or /VERYSILENT.

Uninstaller Command Line Parameters

 

The uninstaller program (unins???.exe) accepts optional command line parameters. These can be useful to system administrators, and to other programs calling the uninstaller program.

/SILENT, /VERYSILENT

When specified, the uninstaller will not ask the user for startup confirmation or display a message stating that uninstall is complete. Shared files that are no longer in use are deleted automatically without prompting. Any critical error messages will still be shown on the screen. When ‘/VERYSILENT’ is specified, the uninstallation progress window is not displayed.

If a restart is necessary and the ‘/NORESTART’ command isn’t used (see below) and ‘/VERYSILENT’ is specified, the uninstaller will reboot without asking.

Example:
