Software Installer Options

The EXE and MSI installers support installation options in the list below. When using the MSI installer, you must supply the options with the WRAPPED_ARGUMENTS property, since the MSI is a wrapper of the EXE installer. Below are install commands with identical options provided to the EXE and MSI installers. The MSI installer includes /VERYSILENT, /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES, and /NORESTART by default, so you do not need to specify them.

  • fvp_setup_4.0.1.15ent.exe /VERYSILENT /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES /NORESTART /DIR="C:\Install\To\File Viewer Plus 4"
  • msiexec.exe /i fvp_setup_4.0.1.15ent.msi /quiet WRAPPED_ARGUMENTS="/DIR=""C:Install\To\File Viewer Plus 4"""

You should always specify /VERYSILENT, /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES, and /NORESTART to the EXE installer for silent installation.

When supplying WRAPPED_ARGUMENTS values with quote (") characters at the command line, you must duplicate the quotes.

/DIR="X:\installation\directory"
Specifies the target installation directory

/LOG="X:\filename"
Creates a log file detailing actions taken by the EXE installer during the installation process

/NOICONS
Instructs the installer not to create the Windows Start menu folder for the program

/MERGETASKS="!desktopicon"
Instructs the installer not to create a desktop shortcut icon for the program

/NOCONTEXTMENU
Removes the right-click "Open with File Viewer Plus" right-click context menu item

/FASSOC="docx,xlsx,pptx"
Instructs the installer to create only these file associations (a whitelist)
Use /FASSOC="" to create no file association entries
Do not use with /NOFASSOC
