Non-interactive installs

 
I understand that you have no silent install abilities. Is there a method for non-interactive installs? We have the potential of pushing out patches to several hundred PC's and do not want to visit each one individually.

Thanks.

Unfortunately we don't have a non-interactive version. If you can explain how the non-interactive version should work in your environment, we can consider to support it. Detailed information about your distribution system would be a great help.

Thanks for your cooperation.

Re: Non-interactive installs supported now

 
Now a new version of Xmanager is available at:

/download/download.html

Please see below for the detailed steps:

1. Creation of a response file.

Install Xmanager as following:

D:TEMP> xmgr139e.exe -r -f1d:tempxinstall.iss

After successful installation, a response file, "xinstall.iss" will be created in the temp directory.

2. Silent installation.

Using the response file created above, you can install Xmanager silently in another PC.
Please do the following steps:

D:TEMP> xmgr139e.exe -s -f1d:tempxinstall.iss -f2d:tempresult.log

A silent installation will create a log file.

You can do the same steps for uninstallation. First, create an "xuninstall.iss" by following step 1 and uninstall Xmanager in another PC using the response file.
