How can I perform a silent installation or unattended installation of ChemOffice Professional application on my machine?


An unattended installation is one which does not require user interaction but will display progress in installation, and a silent (or quiet) installation is one which does not display any indication of its progress.

In order to perform a silent installation or unattended installation, you should be an Administrator of your machine to follow the steps mentioned below.

  1. Go to StartRun and type CMD to open the Command Prompt window.
  2. In the Command prompt window, select the path where the MSI installer is located on your machine and type the following command to perform the Silent/Unattended installation.

    msiexec /i " path for MSI Installer located on your machine" /qn

Where, msiexec = Command to install the MSI installer

/i = switch to install or configure a product

/qn = switch to set no user interface and hence will be a silent install.

/qb = switch to display basic user interface showing the progress in installation (Unattended).

For example:

msiexec /i "C:\Users\Adim\Desktop\CambridgeSoft_ChemOffice_Professional_2016.msi" /qn.

The above location of msi installer has been given as an example located at the desktop of the Windows 7 machine.
