The Setup program accepts optional command line parameters. These can be useful to system administrators, and to other programs calling the Setup program.
Disables the This will install... Do you wish to continue? prompt at the beginning of Setup.
Instructs Setup to be silent or very silent. When Setup is silent the wizard and the background window are not displayed but the installation progress window is. When a setup is very silent this installation progress window is not displayed. Everything else is normal so for example error messages during installation are displayed and the startup prompt is (if you haven't disabled it with the '/SP-' command line option explained above).
If a restart is necessary and the '/NORESTART' command isn't used (see below) and Setup is silent, it will display a Reboot now? message box. If it's very silent it will reboot without asking.
Causes Setup to create a log file in the user's TEMP directory detailing file installation actions taken during the installation process. This can be a helpful debugging aid. For example, if you suspect a file isn't being replaced when you believe it should be (or vice versa), the log file will tell you if the file was really skipped, and why.
Prevents the user from cancelling during the installation process, by disabling the Cancel button and ignoring clicks on the close button. Useful along with '/SILENT' or '/VERYSILENT'.
Instructs Setup not to reboot even if it's necessary. Rebooting may be necessary only when reinstalling.
Specifies the custom exit code that Setup is to return when a restart is needed. Useful along with '/NORESTART'.
Instructs Setup to load the settings from the specified file after having checked the command line. This file can be prepared using the '/SAVEINF=' command as explained below. Don't forget to use quotes if the filename contains spaces.
Instructs Setup to save installation settings to the specified file. Don't forget to use quotes if the filename contains spaces.
Overrides the default directory name displayed on the Select Destination Location wizard page. A fully qualified pathname must be specified.
Overrides the default folder name displayed on the Select Start Menu Folder wizard page.
Instructs Setup to initially check the Don't create any icons check box on the Select Start Menu Folder wizard page.
