Installation in a silent mode

Our team is frequently asked, whether Artec Studio supports a silent installation, so let's gather all information together in this short article.

  • We use Install Shield, which has a built-in silent installation option (http://www.silentinstall.org/InstallShield)
  • The person, responsible for the software installation in the company, should run Artec Studio installer from a command prompt with /r option to create an installer response file (setup.iss) with all choices being recorded.
  • After than Artec Studio can be installed silently on any other PC, using /s option:

Note: The command Setup.exe /s runs the installation in silent mode, by default based on the responses contained in a response file called Setup.iss in the same directory.

 

Two issues to keep in mind:

  1. If installation is performed on a clean PC, then Artec Studio installer will run Artec Installation Center to activate the license. You will either have to organize a user input at this point (to press the "Activate" button) or to emulate it with a script.
  2. If there are several Windows accounts on this PC, then the license files should be placed for all of them – manually or via your installation script. Check this article for more information.
