Installing InfoPrint Select in silent mode

InfoPrint Select can be installed using silent mode. Silent mode eliminates the normal user interface and uses default values or response file values for all required inputs. This mode is generally used by System Administrators to push the installation onto their users' systems.

Use one of these commands from the command line or an automated script to install InfoPrint Select in silent mode:

InfoprintSelect.exe -quiet
This method uses:
  • No response file
  • All the defaults
  • Installs, repairs, or upgrades your installation of InfoPrint Select
Note: This method displays the splash screen and an initial progress bar.
InfoprintSelect.exe /s /f1"c:\setup.iss"
This method uses a response file named setup.iss, which can be one of the samples provided, a modified version of a sample, or your own response file created with the /r option.
InfoprintSelect.exe /s /f1"c:\setup.iss" /f2"c:\output.log"
This method uses a response file named setup.iss and logs the activity. If the installation is successful, this text appears in the output.log: ResultCode=0. The setup.iss can be one of the samples provided, a modified version of a sample, or your own response file created with the /r option.

Note: When installing InfoPrint Select in Silent mode:

  1. To create your own response file, invoke the installer in record mode: InfoprintSelect.exe /r

    This command produces a response file named setup.iss based on the inputs used during installation. To locate this newly created response file, search your system for setup.iss.

    Note: This setup.iss file is incomplete. You must add these lines at the beginning of the document:
    [InstallShield Silent]
    Version=v7.00
    File=Response File
  2. InfoprintSelect.exe is located in the \win\InfoprintSelect folder of the Common Client DVD-ROM.

After you have installed InfoPrint Select, sample response files can be found in Select_install_dir\Install_Samples. You can copy and modify these sample files as appropriate:

  1. setup.iss, which is a sample response file used to install InfoPrint Select
  2. setup_repair.iss, which is a sample response file used to repair an installation of InfoPrint Select
  3. setup_upgrade.iss, which is a sample response file used to upgrade a previous version of InfoPrint Select
  4. setup_remove.iss, which is a sample response file used to remove an installation of InfoPrint Select
