Is there an InstaCal silent installer or a command line switch a silent install?
I am building a single installer to completely install and configure a machine for use in production. However, InstaCal does not seem to have a silent install option. Is there something I am missing?
Note that the following discussion is aimed at OEMs. The vast majority of InstaCal users should install InstaCal using our normal installation method.
icalsetup.exe is a self-extracting zip file that many of our non-OEM customers download and install. Don’t double click on it like they would. Instead, right click on it, and open it (or extract the files) with an unzip utility. You will see the MSI file, plus a bunch of other files and folders. All of these files need to be present, but then you can launch the MSI, in a silent fashion, per below:
Here is the command line usually recommended: Msiexec /i instacal.msi /qn
Another one to consider is this one: Msiexec /I instacal.msi /passive
Note that the above suggestions are derived from Microsoft documentation for their MSI standard. You should thoroughly test this to your satisfaction, as MCC has not done formal testing.
P.S. The above should install the InstaCal driver silently (without user prompts), but the user still then must manually run Inscal32.EXE once to have their DAQ hardware recognized (The end result being a text file named CB.CFG file being created by InstaCal, that stores the hardware information).
