Postby deestuar » Fri Dec 20, 2013 7:22 am


I have just inherited this product in my new role and really require to do something simple but unsure how.
Basically I want command line parameters so I can silent install the product /s or log to some text file
/ so I can find any installation issues juts by reading the log. Simples really :)
I know nothing about installaware I'm a Newby but appreciate any guidance/help etc

Dear Stu,

that is simple!

To test this functionaly on the fly, create a new project from scratch using the Basic template and then build the project as Compressed exe.

Then run the package as follow (silent mode + log file);

<setup.exe> /s /l=<logfile.ext>

<setup.exe> = full path to your setup exe file
<logfile.ext>= full path to your log file ("c:\mylog.txt")

Hope this helps you
