Below are details on how to perform a silent installation of SoftLINK when using both the SoftLINK.msi and the Setup.exe installation files.

To perform a silent installation

  1. Create a distribution copy of SoftLINK containing the required SoftLINK installation files, NSS.ini and NSM.lic (the NSM.lic is not required if you are evaluating).
  2. To determine the properties for the installation, at the command line run INSTCFG.EXE /S from the SoftLINK program folder. The Install Configuration Options dialog will appear. The selected properties are stored in a parameter file, NSS.ini.
    A sample file is installed in the SoftLINK directory.

  1. Choose {File}{Save} and save the ‘NSS.ini’ file to the folder containing the distribution copy of SoftLINK.
  2. To perform the silent install at the required workstation, from the folder containing the distribution copy, run:
    msiexec /i “SoftLINK.msi” /qn (MSI installer)
    setup /S /v/qn (setup.exe installer)
