    Anyone able to install the latest TCX installation (4.0.0.17) unattendedly ?

    I tried using “msiexec /i your_tcx_filename.msi /qb” but without luck, i tried adding it to our windows policy so it would install it in the needed environment but also without luck.

    What i was able to see is that it still needs your TCX serial number during the installation, but adding LICENSE_TCX (see here for more info) was not successful.

    Installing the MSI with msiexec or by using the windows policy results into : “C:Program FilesWyseTCXServertcxConfig.exe” and thats it, no services nothing.

    Hi aLiE,

    funny that your own solution is not working 😀

    This is from the TCX Admin Guide (p 11):

    Performing a Silent Installation on the Server
    Use the following guidelines:
    Note
    Before a silent production installation, be sure you have obtained your Wyse
    TCX Suite production license and saved it in a licence.txt file. During your
    production installation you will need to use this license. Evaluation
    installations do not require a license.
    Note
    Format of the license.txt file:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREWyseTCXLicense]
    “License”=”serial key with dashes”
    Note
    For Windows Vista and Windows 7 Only: Before installing Wyse TCX Suite
    Server software, be sure to disable the User Account Control (UAC) and
    restart your machine according to the Microsoft documentation on the
    Microsoft Web site. After installation, be sure to enable UAC and restart your
    machine according to the Microsoft documentation.
    1. Download the Wyse TCX Suite Server software from the Wyse Web site. Go to
    http://commerce.wyse.com, use the Wyse TCX Suite Maintenance Registration and
    Software Download link to log in, and then download the software (Wyse TCX Server
    Suite.msi) to the server where you will install the software.
    2. Extract the file you need (32-bit or 64-bit—for example, Wyse TCX Server
    Suite_prod64.msi) from the zip file to the desktop of the server.
    3. Open a Command Prompt window (click Start | Run, enter cmd, and click OK).
    4. Navigate to the directory where the file you need to install (for example, Wyse TCX
    Server Suite_prod64.msi) is located.
    5. At the command prompt, use the following guidelines to install the components (where
    TCX Flash Acceleration=FLASH, TCX Multi-display=MDS, TCX Multimedia=MMR,
    TCX Rich Sound=VOIP, and TCX USB Virtualizer=USB):
    •Silent installation of all server components, enter (where xxx is the name of the file
    you are installing):
    C:>msiexec /i “xxx.msi” /q USB=”1″ MMR=”1″
    MDS=”1″ VOIP=”1″ FLASH=”1″ LIC_PATH=”path where txt file is
    locatedlic.txt”
    •Silent installation of selective server components (for example, TCX USB Virtualizer
    and TCX Multimedia), enter (using the format for the two components in our
    example—where xxx is the name of the file you are installing):
    C:>msiexec /i “xxx.msi” /q USB=”1″ MMR=”1″
    LIC_PATH=”path where txt file is locatedlic.txt”

    Hmm seams like there’s something wrong with the unattended/silent installation, it took me some time to figure it out but in our environment we don’t want to install USB Redirection so if you would like to do this using a unattended/silent install your command would be :

    start /wait msiexec /i “[drive]WyseWyse TCX Suite 4.0.0.17.msi” /qb USB=”0″ MMR=”1″ MDS=”1″ VOIP=”1″ FLASH=”1″ LIC_PATH=”[drive]WyseLicense.txt” /norestart

    Now after the installation has been finished and i rebooted the server i noticed the sound was weird on the terminals, so i just double clicked the msi file again and choosed for “Add or Remove Components” and noticed “Rich Sound” has not been installed (and also USB Virtualizer but thats good).
    Even though i have used VOIP=1 as a parameter it didn’t picked up the command and skipped the Rich Sound option/component 🙁

    Think i will have to report this to Wyse unless i’m doing something wrong here, but until now i’m able to reproduce it.

    I am having the same exact issue.
    I created a script to install the client silently with the Multimedia and Rich Sound add-ons. When i execute the script, it runs fine and installs the suite and multimedia, but it skips rich sound add-on. If I rerun the install and add components, I notice that Rich Sound is not installed. Is this a bug or has anyone found a fix for it?

    This is the line i use to choose the add-ons

    c:msiexec /i “c:WyseWyse TCX Suite 4.0.0.17.msi” /qb MMR=”1″ VOIP=”1″

    It looks like it’s a documentation bug, to install “Rich Sound” unattended try using RS=”1″

    Thanks to Wyse support for the help, i did not got the time to test it out by myself but will try it out for sure when i got some spare time.
