20.1.6 Version Installation Dialogs

The dialogs displayed when installing a Version Installer file will depend on the Options and Settings selected when creating the package and the install msiexec.exe parameters used when running the Windows Installer.

A Patch Installer file only displays one configuration dialog which allows install behavior to be modified. That is the Database Setup dialog and the only option that may be enabled is the Setup Database checkbox. For all but one user of the database they must not check this box. Only one user must setup the database. This is extremely important.

It is possible to run the Windows Installer without displaying the following dialogs if the install is executed in quiet or passive mode:

/quiet

Quiet display option.

The Windows Installer will run the installation without displaying a user interface.  No prompts, messages or dialog boxes will be displayed to the user. In this mode the user cannot cancel the installation.

 

/passive

Passive display option.

The Windows Installer will display a progress bar to indicate that an installation is in progress however there will be no prompts or error messages are displayed to the user. In this mode the user cannot cancel the installation.

Refer to msiexec.exe resources for more information.
