2.3. Scripting the Client Install

Applies to MSI installer for:
Concurrent Network client software 6.x/7.x, including Course License network clients
Enterprise Network client software 6.x/7.x

How can I script the Concurrent Network or Enterprise Network client install?

For SCCM installs or other forms of scripting, you probably want an MSI installer. Please contact Palisade Technical Support to request one, and please include your serial number with your request. When you get the link, make certain that the file includes "-cust-" in its name.

Your script must install the prerequisite software before installing our software from an MSI installer. See the appropriate one of these articles:

For the client install, you will need the INI file that was described in Prepare the Client Install. That file should be in a local folder, not necessarily the same folder with the installer. The following commands use C:\TEMP; please substitute the actual folder that contains the INI file. It must be the actual path—constructs like .\ won't work.

Either way, replace C:\TEMP following SETUPEXEDIR with the folder that contains Palisade_NetworkClient.ini. It must be the actual path; ".\" and similar won't work. Guidelines for the SETUPEXEDIR folder:

Variation — no desktop shortcuts:

The attended install has a checkbox for putting shortcuts on the desktop. To suppress those desktop shortcuts (equivalent to removing the check mark from the box), add the DTOPSHORTCUTS=0 parameter:

msiexec /i installername.msi SETUPEXEDIR=C:\TEMP /qn USERNAME="firstname lastname" COMPANYNAME="company" DTOPSHORTCUTS=0
