Configuring the automatic download of InfoPrint Select for Windows

The update server can be configured to download automatically InfoPrint Select for Windows on the client machines.

    Note: The Maintenance mode unlocks the product path folder and you can add and remove any files contained in the product path subdirectories. While in Maintenance mode, the InfoPrint Manager Update Server does not accept any new connections from the client systems.
  3. Copy ipm_select.cfg from <install_dir>\cfg-samples\ to <configuration_dir>.
    Note: The default installation directory is c:\Program Files\RICOH\InfoPrint Manager Update Server and the default configuration directory is c:\ProgramData\RICOH\InfoPrint Manager Update Server\.
  4. To specify the global settings and create filters, edit the ipm_select.cfg file. See Sample ipm_select.cfg file for more details about the configuration file.

    • The installation scripts are install_InfoPrint_Select_new.cmd, install_InfoPrint_Select_repair.cmd, install_InfoPrint_Select_update.cmd.
  7. Create the response files with these names: setup_new.iss, setup_update.iss, setup_repair.iss.
    To create your own response files:
    1. To create your own response file, invoke the InfoPrint Select installer in record mode: InfoprintSelect. exe /r . This command produces a response file named setup.iss based on the inputs used during installation. The setup.iss file is located by default in %WINDIR% folder.
