Unattended installation is provided to help streamline the installation process in bigger facilities. These tools are provided by Microsoft and allow starting installation on a remote computer. To support that feature, the Windows driver installer accepts license numbers, keys, users, and other information from command line. The command syntax is the following:
msiexec /i <MsiFile> /qn USERNAME="<UserName>" COMPANYNAME="<CompanyName>" LICNUM="<LicenseNumber>" LICKEY="<LicenseCode>"
In driver versions before 22.214.171.124, the COMPANYNAME attribute was COMPANY and USERNAME attribute was USER.
Windows Vista and later: The silent install command must be started from the System account. (Start -> Run -> cmd then press Shift+Ctrl+Enter)
/qn invokes a silent install.
Starting from version 126.96.36.199, the installation can skip the initial launching of control panel if needed and the user knows what to do. To skip the control panel add the attribute DISABLECPL=1 to the msiexec command shown above.
Starting from version 188.8.131.52, during installation MSI checks that the kernel module is totally unloaded from the system and if not, will halt the installation. To disable this checking, add the attribute SKIPKERNELCHECK=1 to the msiexec command.
Troubleshooting Installation Problems
Enable logging to a file. This can be used in conjunction with the msiecec commands above. The log file will be written in the location where the MSI file is launched from.
msiexec.exe /i axiaipdr.msi.... /l*v axiaipdr_install.log
Windows PowerShell Script
Download the PowerShell Script example and other items needed by clicking here. Read the internal notes in the script for information on use. You will also need to place the installer for the driver in this same folder.
Then open a Powershell window and run the script.
Make sure your system has permission to run scripts.
The script assumes that the configuration file and certificate are in the same directory as the script runs from.
