Using the Silent Installer in Esko ArtiosCAD 7.6

Introduction1 Using the Silent Installer in Esko ArtiosCAD 7.6

In large corporate environments, it can be inconvenient to install and

configure Esko ArtiosCAD identically on many workstations. To ease this

task, Esko ArtiosCAD has an installation method called silent installation

which needs minimal user intervention.

Silent installation uses the command prompt and appends the setup

command with configuration options called switches. For example, to

install Esko ArtiosCAD to the D: drive and have user files stored in

E:\users\prod, the command is as follows:

setup /s /v"/qn INSTALLDIR=D:\Artios

USERFILESDIR=E:\Users\Prod"

For a richer and more robust Esko ArtiosCAD installation experience, you

can write a batch file containing the command, and distribute the batch

file to each computer for use with the Esko ArtiosCAD media. Or the batch

file can be run on each computer with the command inside the batch file

pointing to the Esko ArtiosCAD setup directory on a common network

server.

Silent installation is not a way to install Esko ArtiosCAD remotely. It works

only for the computer on which it is run. For example, you cannot install

Esko ArtiosCAD on system CLIENT1 by doing a silent installation on

system SERVER1 and specifying file locations on CLIENT1. Doing that

would install Esko ArtiosCAD on SERVER1 and store all the files on

CLIENT1. It would not install Esko ArtiosCAD on CLIENT1.

Esko ArtiosCAD 7.6 and later versions are supported only on computers

using Windows Vista Business, Windows 2003 Server Service Pack 1 or

greater, or Windows XP Professional Service Pack 1 or greater.

N OTE: For all operations using the silent installer or SolidWorks batch files,

you must be logged in as Administrator or as a user with local administra-

tive privileges.

Before you begin

If the system will be using SQL Server 2005 Express Edition as the data-

base engine, you must install it before installing Esko ArtiosCAD.

To install SQL Server 2005 Express Edition silently using the batch file, run

\ArtiosCAD\SQL2005ExpressInstall.bat on the Database

server.

The batch file can accept two parameters, DATADIR and /s.DATADIR

is the directory that stores database data files; by default it is

C:\Artios\DataCenter\SQL2005Express. The /s switch causes

the installer to be completely silent; if it is not specified, a progress bar and

Cancel button appear.

Using the Silent Installer in Esko ArtiosCAD 7.6

Composing the command3 Composing the command

All silent installations start by using this command:

setup /s /v”/qn switches”

where switches are configuration options you specify that are described in the

next section.

When composing the command, note the following:

?There is no space between the v and the first quotation mark.

?Switches and their values are case sensitive.

?Use a quotation mark after the last switch to close the string of switches

passed to the setup program.

?If there are spaces in a switch, use quotation marks to enclose it. To not

interfere with the quotation marks around the entire string of switches,

each of these quotation marks must be preceded by a backslash, as

shown below:

setup /s /v"/qn INSTALLDIR=D:\Artios LICENSETYPE=\"Elan LM\""

?You must use the setup command in the ArtiosCAD folder of the CD or

network location, or explicitly state the absolute path to it as part of the

setup command (for example,

G:\ArtiosCAD_versions\ArtiosCAD7.60en\ArtiosCAD\setu

p). The top level setup.exe does not work for silent installation.

The value of each piece of information needed to install Esko ArtiosCAD comes

from one of three places:

1)It can be specified as a switch on the command line.

2)It can be in the Registry already if this is an upgrade.

3)It can be a default in the setup program.

The setup program follows the hierarchy listed above. Command line switches

override Registry values and the setup program’s internal defaults. Values

already in the Registry override internal defaults but in turn are overridden by

command line switches. Internal defaults are used only when there is no

pre-existing Registry value and no command line switch.

Notes and examples

Specify as many switches as desired on the command line up to the limit

of the command line length.

Switch /qn makes the installation silent. To show a user interface with

progress bars only, use /qb instead. To show progress bars and a dialog

box at the end, use /qb+.

The system may reboot at the end of the silent installation unless you

specifically use the REBOOT=ReallySuppress switch.

When using the silent installer to reload the current version, you must add

“REINSTALL=ALL REINSTALLMODE=vomus” to the switches.

Example 1

To run a silent installation using all the defaults from the media drive,

assuming the media drive is D:, do the following at the command prompt

with disk 1 of the Esko ArtiosCAD media in the drive:

D:

cd \ArtiosCADsetup /s /v”/qn”

Example 2

To run a silent installation for a Standalone system type using Oracle as

the database, Elan License Manager as the licensing method, and

installing everything but the Esko Configuration Manager, do the following

at the command prompt with the Esko ArtiosCAD media in the D: drive:

D:

cd \ArtiosCAD

setup /s /v”/qn DATABASETYPE=Other

ADDLOCAL=ArtiosCAD_Programs,Database_Controls,Database_Se

rver,Defaults_Server,DWB_Libraries,LP_Libraries,PDF_Libra

Using the Silent Installer in Esko ArtiosCAD 7.6

Example 34

As the database type is set to Other, you also have to manually add the

ODBC entry for Esko ArtiosCAD on the System DSN tab of the ODBC

configuration applet in Control Panel.

Example 3

To run a silent installation from a batch file, two elements must be added

to the setup command. Precede the setup command with start

/wait and add the /w switch after it.

The command in a batch file to run a silent installation using all defaults is

shown below.

start /wait setup.exe /w /s /v”/qn”

To run a setup in a batch file that sets the installation directory to

L:\Artios, the licensing type to FlexNet Local, and to not apply the

license disk, use the following command inside the batch file. In the batch

file it is all on one line.

start /wait setup /w /s /v”/qn INSTALLDIR=L:\Artios

LICENSETYPE=FlexNet LMTYPE=Local LICENSEDISK=No”

SolidWorks

To install SolidWorks silently using the batch file, run SolidWorksIn-

stall.bat on the separate SolidWorks media as an administrative user.

If you have User Account Control (UAC) turned on, you must use an

administrator command prompt to run the batch file; right-click the

command prompt shortcut on the Start menu and choose Run as

administrator. Otherwise, the batch file will appear to work correctly, but

the software will not load correctly and the feature will fail in Esko

ArtiosCAD.

The batch file can accept two parameters, INSTALLDIR and /s.

INSTALLDIR is the directory into which SolidWorks is installed; by

default, it is C:\Esko\Artios. The /s switch causes the installer to be

mostly silent; even when specified, some user interface elements may

appear.

To remove the separate version of SolidWorks introduced in Esko

ArtiosCAD 7.6, run SolidWorksRemove.bat in the root folder of the

separate SolidWorks media.

If you have purchased the SolidWorks option in a pre-7.6 version of Esko

ArtiosCAD and need to remove it without uninstalling Esko ArtiosCAD, run

\ArtiosCAD\SolidWorksRemove.bat on disk 1 of the Esko

ArtiosCAD media used to install it initially. The integrated version of Solid-

Works is normally removed automatically when the last version of Esko

ArtiosCAD using it is removed.
