How can installations be distributed via the network?


The installation packages can be distributed with an MSI file (Windows Installer Package). For this, it is necessary to extract the MSI file from the installation package.

Run setup.exe with the parameter "-E." In the example shown in Figure 01, the RFEM installation file has been copied to the drive C:\. After the decompression, you find a new folder in the same path with the name "Program_Version Number_Architecture." In the example in Figure 01, a folder with the name RFEM5.07.13_64-bit has been created.

The installation can be then started from this folder with the command "msiexec -i .msi" (see Figure 02). If the authorization file is to be imported at the same time and if the language is German, the command will be as follows:

msiexec -i "Dlubal RSTAB 64-bit.msi" -passive -q TRANSFORMS=1031.mst AUTHORIZATION_FILE_PATH=\\[IHR SERVER]\AUTHOR.INI

If using the command -q (=-quiet), the installation is carried out without the user interface.

The command prompt should be started by right-clicking and selecting the shortcut menu option "Run as Administrator."

If the program language is to be English, it is necessary to delete the parameter "TRANSFORMS=1031.mst."

You can find the detailed information about all commands and language IDs in the document "Software Deployment."
