Silent installation
« on: October 02, 2013, 07:47:04 am »
Is there a method to install WinBatch 2013C silently. We have a group license and would like to distribute this to multiple machines, but have been unable to successfully repackage it. Is there anyway to silently install with the license information already entered?

Starting with WinBatch 2012A, You can use the '/silent' switch with the main setup.exe (not the one in the root of the CD, if you are using the CD). However, even with the switch, you still need to interactively supply license information unless the machine already has an active WinBatch or WinBatch+Compiler license installed.

Wasn't there a script in the Tech Database that bundled things up, including registry entries, which allowed one to put WinBatch on a thumbdrive and it would install/uninstall WinBatch so it was easily portable.   If so, would that solve the problem?   Can't find it now but know it was there at one point and thought it handled the license part as well.

Unfortunately, this won't help me since manual intervention will still be required during the installation process.

Do you currently have a SITE license for WinBatch, that you would like to install to multiple systems and those systems haven’t been previously licensed with WinBatch? If so please see my email.
