Title: windows silent/unattended install
Post by: wolftom 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.

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!
