How to install MonitorWare Agent in silent mode?
Created on by Andre Lorbach.
Because MonitorWare Agent is using the Windows Installer (MSIE) it is very easy to start the Installation in silent mode.
There are two ways to do it.
1. Using the MonitorWare Agent msi-file (Only possible if Windows Installer version 2.0 is installed on the target machine)
The msi-file has to be started with the following command line options (Using a sample File location):
msiexec /i C:\SetupFileName.msi /qn
2. Using the WinSyslog setup-file (Only necessary if Windows Installer 2.0 isn’t installed – a reboot might be necessary).
The setup-file has to be started with the following command line options (Using a sample File location):
SetupFileName.exe /v"/qn" /s
