Has anyone successfully managed to silently install WDM? If so how did you do it? I’ve tried creating an ISS file and run the setup with /s without much success9. April 2008 at 15:56 #12585
I think you have to create an Unattend.ini file in the setup folder. Format would be like that:
I do not have any documentation on the parameters above, sorry.

Thanks for your help, it’s a good start.
Anyone know the rest of the settings? Or how to find them out myself?24. April 2008 at 7:43 #12797
have you tried the file above?24. April 2008 at 10:23 #12802
I have, Setup seems to ignore the unattend.ini and continue with a manual installation.
Do I need to specify the unattend.ini in the command line for the setup.exe? I tried Setup / s but that didnâ€™t help.
I noticed there is a setup.ini in the same folder as well, so I copied your settings to that file and ran the setup again. That was unsuccessful too.24. April 2008 at 12:28 #12806
Run setup.exe -s
some more infos I found:
InstallSilently=1 <- leave 1
TargetDir= <- Target Directory (obvious)
UserFullName=Rapport User <-This is the user name from the Customer Information screen
CompanyName=Rapport Client <- like Username above
LicenseKey=xxxxxxxx <- By default, the install supplies a Workgroup 750-seat Sale key. Enter a value here to supply a different key
FeatureTree=DRWSU <- This argument is needed only if an Enterprise key has been specified. To install all components, the value for the argument is DRWSU, where D is for Database, R is for Repository, W is for HServer (â€œWebâ€), S is for Standard Services, and U is for UI (the MMC Snap-In).
EntDBLocation= <- Enterprise Database Location. This argument must be used when installing across multiple servers
FTPLocation= <- (obvious)
FTPUser= <- (obvious)
FTPPassword= <- (obvious) These three FTP arguments must be used togetherâ€”if you use one, you must use all three
DBLocation=W2S_A <- (obvious)
DBUser=sa <- (obvious)
DBPassword=password <- (obvious) These three DB arguments must be used togetherâ€”if you use one, you must use all three. Only use if you do not use MSDE.
InstallType=CUSTOM <- Value must be either TYPICAL or CUSTOM. If the value is TYPICAL, no other arguments are requiredâ€”the install will use default selections for all other options.25. April 2008 at 12:17 #12812
So, if I’m reading your post right, just to do a Typical install, all I’d need is:
InstallType=TYPICAL25. April 2008 at 14:38 #12813
Never tried but looks good25. April 2008 at 15:29 #12816
Nothing happens!! Is there a way of creating a log file or getting the install to run automatically with a GUI?26. April 2008 at 1:20 #12821
Have you run setup.exe -s ?
CG26. April 2008 at 3:30 #12822
Yeah, I’m running it from a command prompt, I get an hour glass for a couple of seconds then it returns to the prompt.28. April 2008 at 6:05 #12826
Look in your temp folder for WyseInstall.log.
Maybe this shows you some tips why the install fails.
CG28. April 2008 at 11:27 #12834
12:12:03|Setup.Rul|1591| ResetDataAccessVersion Begin
12:12:03|Setup.Rul|1598| Root key Sucessfully Set to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.
12:12:03|Setup.Rul|1621| ResetDataAccessVersion End
Just for the record:
1. Installation works fine if I run setup.exe from a command box and manually complete the install
2. I get exactly the same thing if I run setup -s with a blank unattend.ini
3. I’m logged in as a domain admin.
4. Nothing is reported in the event logs.28. April 2008 at 13:27 #12839
As I already told you, I have never done this myself. I know for sure it worked for Rapport 4.4. But it looks like Wyse has removed this feature within WDM 4.5.x.
You should contact Wyse Support and ask if they still support it or not.
Maybe they have just switched the name of the unattend.ini file.
CG28. April 2008 at 13:44 #12840
WYSE have said that they don’t support silent installs 🙁
Looks like I’ll have to repackage this after all!
