To install SmartSketch in silent mode from a command line:

  1. Open a Command Prompt window from the Start menu.

  2. Type "<path and setup.exe>"/install/silent SLAACCEPT=YES SERIALNUM=<serial number> and additional optional arguments into the command line. For example, the command line:

    setup.exe /install/silent SLAACCEPT=YES SERIALNUM=01234567891234

    Uses serial number 01234567891234 and installs the default selected features to the default folder, [Install Drive]:\Program Files(x86)\SmartSketch.

  3. Press ENTER to install SmartSketch.

Required Arguments

The required arguments are:

  • /install

  • SLAACCEPT=YES - Accepts the Software License Agreement.

  • SERIALNUM=<serial number> in the command line.

  • /silent - No user interface of any form is displayed. If you do not include /silent on the command line, dialog boxes display during the installation process.

Optional Arguments

The available optional arguments are:

  • INSTALLLOCATION="<path to install to>"

  • DRAWING_FILES="<path to Drawings files folder>"

  • ADDLOCAL=<comma-delimited list of optional features to install>. To add all features, type ADDLOCAL=ALL.

  • REMOVE=<comma-delimited list of optional features to remove from installation>. To remove all features, enter REMOVE=ALL.

  • /LOG <path and file name of installation logging file>

    • Insert a space between ‘log’ and the first double quote (") for the path, otherwise, the log file gets generated in the Temp folder.

    • The path gets automatically created if it does not exist.

    • The install software creates three log files: one for the bootstrapper, one for the RAD setup, and one for the SmartSketch setup.

  • /UNINSTALL "<path and filename of the setup.exe file> - Removes SmartSketch

To include additional optional features, set ADDLOCAL=ALL, and then use the REMOVE command to delete the list of features to omit.

All optional arguments are placed in the command line after the argument SERIALNUM=<serial number>. For example, the command line:

"<path and file name of setup.exe file>" /install /silent SLAACCEPT=YES SERIALNUM=<serial number> INSTALLLOCATION="C:\SmartSketch" DRAWING_FILES="C:\Drawings"

Defines the file paths for SmartSketch and drawings files.

For example, the command line "<path and file name of setup.exe file>" /install /silent SLAACCEPT=YES SERIALNUM=<serial number> INSTALLLOCATION="C:\SmartSketch" AddLOCAL=ALL REMOVE=AECSolutions,MechanicalSolutions installs all files except AEC Solutions and Mechanical Solutions.
