Command-Line Deployment


To silently install File Viewer Plus from the command line with default options, use the following commands. You should run these commands with admin privilege or Windows will block the install with a UAC permissions prompt. For advanced installation, see Installer Options for arguments that can be supplied to the installers.

EXE installer:


MSI installer:

msiexec.exe /i fvp_setup_5.1.0.17ent.msi /quiet


To activate the license, use the following commands, where "C:\path\to\fvp5.exe" is the post-install path to the main program executable ("C:\Program Files (x86)\File Viewer Plus 5\fvp5.exe" by default) and XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX is your activation key.

Online activation:

"C:\path\to\fvp5.exe" /activate XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX

Offline activation:

Before offline activation, you must place your offline license (.lic) file in the license\ directory of the installation. See offline license activation for further information.

"C:\path\to\fvp5.exe" /activate-offline XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX

Offline activation for version 4 (older version):

Version 4 offline license activation requires the license file as an argument:

"C:\path\to\fvp4.exe" /activate-offline XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX "C:\path\to\fvp4-enterprise-lic.dat"

When activation is complete, a node-locked license file is created at "%PUBLIC%\File Viewer Plus\fvp5.lic", which typically resolves to C:\Users\Public\File Viewer Plus\fvp5.lic.
