Silent Installs

  • Winzip Self-extractors: file.exe /auto <directory>
  • MikTex: basic-miktex-2.9.xxxx.exe --shared --unattended
  • Texmaker: texmakerwin32_install.exe /S
  • Ghostscript: gs902w32.exe /S
  • COMSOL: setup.exe -s [setupfile].ini
    • Version 4.2: Must copy com.comsol.resources_1.0.0.jar (created during install of software) to /plugins directory of install media. Silent install fails without it.
  • Quartus II:
  • Synopsys Saber:
  • Synopsys HSPICE:
  • Agilent ADS:

Advertisements and Task Sequences

  • TS: Install Multiple Applications option
    • Define Task Sequence Variables for each application to install
    • Variable names must be in format XXX001, XXX002, XXX003 etc, where XXX is the base name (no known restriction on base name)
    • Define variables first, then add "Install Software" step, choose option to install multiple applications, and input the base name of the TSVs
    • Unconfirmed: Only works if TS advertisement is set to access content directly from the DP
  • TS: Using multiple "Install Software" steps to install multiple applications in one TS
    • Appears to mis-report required disk space if installing multiple programs from the same package
