Silent Install

Postby Strack » Tue May 09, 2017 12:01 pm

Hi,

im trying to make an automatic silent install batch for SimLab Composer.
How can i do this? There is no .msi installer and there is no information about install parameters for the setup.

I do not think that you can do a silent installer for SimLab Composer 8
As it needs DirectX for the VR capabilities on Windows.

Well i could install directX manually before installing SimLab. But it seems even when direct X is already installed, it will be reinstalled everytime

We want to make SimLab Composer accessible for every employe at work that needs it. Since its a lot of work to manually install the programm on every PC, we use msi files to create "jobs" for certain software. These Jobs are installing the software silently in the background without user interaction.

After a few test i managed to extract the SimLab composer setup.exe. Now i have access to the composer.msi. I can install it silently with

Code: Select all

msiexec /i \SimLab\183371E\composer_64.msi /q


But we still have some problems with that file:

- I cannot change the default install path.
- I Cannot specify the licence server
- During the installation the direct X setup pops up. So user interaction is required.

We would like to have a way, to install this program completey silent, to a costum install Path with the licence server already set.

Hello Strack,

We have updated SimLab Composer to version 8.0.5, this version will allow you to do a fully silent install.
You can download it from here.

To do a silent install use the following:

Code: Select all

SimLab_Composer_8_v8.0.5.exe /exelang 1033 /exenoui /q /norestart APPDIR="C:\SimLab\Composer8"


The number 1033 is the language code for English, you can find the codes for other supported languages at http://www.science.co.il/language/Locale-codes.php.

The APPDIR argument allows you to change the Installation location, you can remove it and it will install to the default location (C:\Program Files\SimLab\SimLab Composer 8).

If you need to add the floating Server information, you can create a registry file (.reg) and save the following information in it:

Code: Select all

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\SimLab\SimLab Composer 2018]
"FloatingIP"="192.168.0.100"
"FloatingPort"="2225"


Change FloatingIP and FloatingPort to match your server's settings.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us, we will be glad to help.

Best Regards,

Omar Abu Eid
