<h1>InstallAnywhere Silent Installation</h1>
According to Wikipedia InstallAnywhere is a Java-based software used to create software packages.
On Windows, InstallAnywhere packages come as executables.
In order to install such a package silently, we need to follow these steps:
1. Create a configuration replay file (install.properties) by starting the setup in replay mode.
<setup.exe> -r install.properties
2. Complete the installation by selecting the desired options.
3. Edit the newly install.properties file. Add this line before the install directory definition.
5. Run the following command:
<setup.exe> -i silent -f “<pathto>\install.properties”
ATTENTION: Try to keep the path to the .properties file short (no spaces). Otherwise, the setup might fail (Problem opening install properties file). Try something like c:\tmp or c:\temp…
By default, log files (or something close) can be found in c:\tmp.
<h1>InstallAnywhere Silent Uninstall</h1>
In order to uninstall the software silently, look for an Uninstall*.exe in the installation directory. Run it with the -i silent parameter.
