Examples for silent install

The following example shows a silent installation in which the source location path, configuration connection info (.cci) file, password, and installation location are all specified.

"E:\Smart Licensing\Smart Licensing Client Setup.exe" -silent -install SLAACCEPT=YES CONFIGFILE="E:\Smart Licensing Client\ConfigurationConnectionInfoFile.cci" CONFIGPASSWORD=pswd INSTALLLOCATION="D:\Smart Licensing"

The following example shows a silent installation in which PowerShell is used:

& "E:\Smart Licensing\Smart Licensing Client Setup.exe" -silent -install SLAACCEPT=YES CONFIGFILE="E:\Smart Licensing\ConfigurationConnectionInfoFile.cci" CONFIGPASSWORD=pswd INSTALLLOCATION="D:\Smart Licensing" | Out-Null

| Out-Null sends output to the "bit bucket," thereby waiting for completion before continuing.

Example for silent uninstall

The following example shows a silent un-installation where the source location path is E:\Smart Licensing Client.

"E:\Smart Licensing\Smart Licensing Client Setup.exe" -silent -uninstall

To perform a silent uninstall, you must have the original installation media.
