windows silent/unattended install
« on: September 20, 2008, 06:50:13 pm »
Hello
I've found the "/S" parameter to run a silent install except the final "Do you want to run Code::block now?"
Does anybody have idea?

Code: [Select]
codeblocks-8.02mingw-setup.exe /S

Nope. This message cannot be switched off. (I simply forgot to take care of a silent installer). I'll do a note for the next installer of the next release.

As of now: If you really need a silent install you can also just copy the "installed" version of C::B to any other PC. There is no registry hocus-pocus we do...

another thing to note for a truly silent install is that when it finds that the destination directory already exists, the user is still prompted.
also, it still shows the codeblocks banner with /S

keep up the good work!

Hello,

Please tell me if there is an install parameter to run a full silent install.
I need to install the keyboard configuration plugin.

Thanks!

Why not downloading a nightly build version, and all the plugins were included.
If some piece of memory should be reused, turn them to variables (or const variables).
If some piece of operations should be reused, turn them to functions.
If they happened together, then turn them to classes.

This is because we need it for a national programming contest and all participants must be confident that there is a stable release ...

Not in the 08/02 release. But the installer script in SVN is already patched to support silent install. So you would have to create the installer yourself (using the 08/02 release if you like).

Another alternative is *not* to install it at all but just copy the folder.

Thank you!
I agree with both of you.
I simply need the best arguments (reasons) to present to the board which finally will take a decision.

Code: [Select]
codeblocks-8.02mingw-setup.exe /S
if you use batch file for silent install use taskkill command at the end to kill setup after finishing installation.
I would do something like this:
one batch file:
codeblocks-8.02mingw-setup.exe /S
then run second batch file:
taskkill /F /IM codeblocks-8.02mingw-setup.exe
you're done!
