Silent Installation of PlantTools

This blog describes how PlantTools can be installed silently without user interaction.

In case you have a large install basis and you don’t want to install or update each single machine and PlantTools individually, you can also install or update PlantTools without user interaction for example when the user logs in.

To install/update any PlantTools you use the two command line parameters VERYSILENT and SUPPRESSMSGBOXES as follows:

PlantExpressTools_Setup.exe /VERYSILENT /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES

PlantExpressTools_Update.exe /VERYSILENT /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES

For some customers we also provide silent install MSI files. Those files already have those two parameters set.

PlantExpressTools_Setup_Silent.msi

However, using the MSI package may cause a problem if the Visual C++ Redistributable isn’t installed. Make sure that one of the Redistributable packages below is installed.
