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.
- Go to Start – Run and type CMD to open the Command Prompt window.
- 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).
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.
