Post subject:  Silent Deployment of ROBOTCforCortexPI

Hi All, this is my first post. I have an .exe installer for ROBOTCforCortexPI_360 which I want to deploy silently without user intervention. Deployment method is SCCM & I'd like to integrate/apply the license key during installation. Has this been done before?

Hello, and welcome to the forums!

We unfortunately do not have a silent installer for ROBOTC; however, it may be possible to make a custom script to do so. Below are some useful parameters and possible hurdles you may run into:

*******

Parameter Description
/v Passes parameters to MSI package.
/s Causes setup.exe to be silent.
/l Specifies the setup language.
/a Performs administrative installation.
/j Installs in advertise mode.
/x Performs setup uninstall.
/f Launches setup in repair mode.
/w Setup.exe waits for the installation to finish before exiting.
/qn A Windows Installer MSI parameter that causes everything but setup.exe to be silent. This sets the user interface level to zero.


Uninstall mode
/x
Uninstall mode removes Personal Communications from your system.

Repair mode
/f
Launching setup.exe in the repair mode checks the key file of every installed feature and reinstalls any feature that is determined to be missing, corrupt, or an older version.

Running setup.exe silently
/s
To prevent setup.exe from displaying a progress bar, use the /s command-line parameter. To have setup run silently with no dialogs, pass the Windows Installer /qn command-line parameter through setup.exe using the /v parameter. Refer to Microsoft's documentation of command-line parameters for other /q user interface options. To run a silent installation, type:

ROBOTCfor_xxx.exe /s /qn
(Change .exe file name to actual installation file)

*******

It does depend on the setup and restrictions in place on each computer, and if you are able to bypass UAC to enable the file transfers.

Also, check our one of our forum threads that deals with this matter:
viewtopic.php?f=11&t=4294&p=18236&hilit=silent+install#p18236

Finally, we do have a 'ROBOTC Deployment Guide' on the ROBOTC wiki that you may want to use as reference: http://www.robotc.net/wiki/ROBOTC_Deployment_Guide
