Question / Problem

Is it possible to perform a silent installation of this software?

Answer / Solution

Starting the setup with the command line parameters /SILENT /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES /PASSWORD=<installationkey> will perform a silent and automatic installation with the default settings. Please replace <installationkey> with the installation key that you received after your registration. Using /VERYSILENT instead of /SILENT will prevent any visual feedback. Use the options /SERVICEUSER <domain>\<username> and /SERVICEPWD <password> within the initial installation of SpaceObServer to specify the login information of the SpaceObServer Service. Otherwise the local system account is used here, which can lead to problems when scanning network shares (See: "SpaceObServer doesn't start to scan a selected directory...").The option /DIR=<directory> can be used to override the default install path. After this you may configure your database connection using the OLE Automation Interface of SpaceObServer. A template script for an Unattended Installation of SpaceObServer can be found in the installation directory, in the sub directory "Demos" (See "UnattendedInstallation.vbs").
