Unattended install

Is there a way to install Xshell silently - e.g. for deployment using SCCM? I've tried passing various command lines to the installer without success.

Program Ver. : Xshell 4

Re: Unattended install

To perform silent install, please follow the instruction below:

Create Response file
First, you need to creat a response file. To do this, install Xshell as following:

*Make sure create the c:\temp folder before you continue.
c:\> setupfile.exe -r -f1c:\temp\xinstall.iss

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

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

C:\TEMP> setupfile.exe -s -f1c:\temp\xinstall.iss -f2c:\temp\result.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 Xshell in another PC using the response file.

Re: Unattended install

The .iss file is automatically created after you finish the installation if you installed Xshell with the parameters.

The file records certain procedures and options related to the installation and can be used for silent and automated installations with the same procedures and options.
