ExamplesThe following command-line command is an example that uses the .msi file. Be aware that the Windows Installer switch "/q" is used to make this a silent installation and that the "%" characters in "%HomeDrive%" are preceded by the "^" escape character. Otherwise, the Windows command shell will set the value to that of the user who is performing the installation.
msiexec.exe /i "softgrid-ts-setup.msi" SWICACHESIZE="1024" SWIDCSDISPLAY="Production Environment" SWIDCSTYPE="HTTP /secure" SWIDCSHOST="OSFSGS" SWIDCSPORT="443" SWIDCSPATH="/SoftGrid/appsntype.xml" SWIDCSREFRESH="on" SWISKIPDATASETTINGS="false" SWIGLOBALDATA="D:\SoftGrid\Global" SWIUSERDATA="%HomeDrive%\Windows\SoftGrid Client" SWISOFTGRIDDRIVE="S" /q
The following command-line command is an example that uses the .exe file. Be aware that the InstallShield switch /s is used to make this a silent install. Also be aware that the quotation marks that appear in the "/v" section must be treated as special characters and entered as "\".
"softgrid-ts-setup.exe" /s /v"SWICACHESIZE=\"1024\" SWIDCSDISPLAY=\"Production Environment\" SWIDCSTYPE=\"HTTP /secure\" SWIDCSHOST=\"OSFSGS\" SWIDCSPORT=\"443\" SWIDCSPATH=\"/SoftGrid/appsntype.xml\" SWIDCSREFRESH=\"on\" SWISKIPDATASETTINGS=\"false\" SWIGLOBALDATA=\"D:\SoftGrid\Global\" SWIUSERDATA=\"^%HomeDrive^%\Windows\SoftGrid Client\" SWISOFTGRIDDRIVE=\"S\""
There are no SoftGrid command-line switches available for the .msp file. However, you can use the following Windows Installer command-line switches to silently install the .msp file:
msiexec.exe /p "softgrid-xx-HFxxxxxxxxxx.msp" /qn+ REINSTALL=ALL REINSTALLMODE=omus
The following command-line command is an example that uses the .msi file to upgrade the SoftGrid Client.
msiexec.exe /i "softgrid-ts-setup.msi" REINSTALL=ALL REINSTALLMODE=vomus
Note The quotation marks are required only when the value contains a space. For consistency, all the previous examples are shown as having quotation marks.
