Solo Installer Flags

From Eigenvector Documentation Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Stand-alone applications like Solo, Solo+MIA, and Solo_Predictor are installed on Windows systems using a standard Windows installer application. These installer applications support several command-line flags to customize the installation process. The flags listed below can be used by either (A) calling the installer from a DOS window, (B) creating a shortcut to the installer and editing the shortcut to include the flag(s) desired, or (C) calling the installer from another program which permits inclusion of flags in the command line.

/S

Silent Mode No graphical user interfaces or other progress indicators. No user intervention required and no feedback given. All default options will be selected (location, shortcuts, file associations, etc). Often this needs to be used with the /E flag as the application will NOT automatically be extracted from the component technology file (CTF).

/Q

Quiet Mode Only show the Installing page with progress indicator. No user intervention is required. All default options will be selected (location, shortcuts, file associations, etc). Some custom products force this flag to be "on" by default. Use the /I flag to do an interactive installation.

/I

Interactive Mode Disables quiet mode for installers which have the /S or /Q flag set by default (silent installers - usually only used for custom products.)

/E

Extract CTF Forces installer to extract component technology file (CTF) contents rather than encourage user to run app. Often used with /S or /Q flag to assure product is completely ready to run on first execution.
