How can installations be distributed via the network?
You have to start setup.exe with the parameter "-E" (see Figure 1). For the example shown in the figure, the RFEM installation file has been copied to drive C:\. After the decompression, you find a new folder in the same path with the name "Dlubal_Program_Version Number_Architecture". For the example in Figure 1, a folder with the name Dlubal_RFEM_5.07.13.124218_64-bit has been created.
The installation can be started afterwards from this folder with the command "msiexec -i .msi" (see Figure 2). If the authorization file should be imported at the same time and if the language should be German, the command is as follows:
msiexec -i "Dlubal RSTAB 64-bit.msi" -passive -q TRANSFORMS=1031.mst AUTHORIZATION_FILE_PATH=\\[IHR SERVER]\AUTHOR.INI
If the command -q (=-quiet) is used, the installation is carried out without graphical user interface.
It should be ensured that the command prompt is started by right-clicking → Run as Administrator.
If the program language should be English, the parameter "TRANSFORMS=1031.mst" has to be deleted.
You can find detailed information about all commands and language IDs in the document DlubalSoftwareDeployment.pdf (see below).
