Generate/VShellIcon.gif  Example Answer File


The following is an example answer file that could be used when silently installing VShell.

 

# Value file for VanDyke Software VShell installer.

# Run the installer (e.g., vshell-x86.exe) with the following

# command-line options to make use of this file:

#   /v"ANSWERFILE=Full_Path_To_This_File"

# For example:

#   vshell-x86.exe /s /v"/qn ANSWERFILE=c:\temp\myValuesFile.txt"

#

# With a silent installation (include the /s /v"/qn" command-line option

# when launching the vshell-x86.exe installer), no dialogs are

# displayed and the options specified here will be used in place of the

# default installation options.

#

# With an interactive installation, the default values presented

# in the interactive dialogs of the installer will be replaced with

# any corresponding values defined within this file.

#

# Install Options

# LICENSE_FILE:  Full path to the file containing license

#   information.  The .lic file allows for registration of

#   the product at install time.  The .lic file must follow

#   the format specified in the license letter you received

#   when your licenses were purchased.

#   The .lic file is copied to the installation folder and

#   renamed according to the naming convention required by

#   the application being installed.

#   NOTE: The license file must exist on the destination

#         machine (or be available via a network path using

#         a mapped drive or UNC path) prior to installation.

#

# Environment variables are also allowed here, but require

# two % characters on each side of the variable name.

# quote) characters, even if there are spaces in the

# path.

# in .reg.

#   NOTE: The registry file must exist on the destination

#         machine (or be available via a network path using

#         a mapped drive or UNC path) prior to installation.

#

# Environment variables are also allowed here, but require

# two % characters on each side of the variable name.

#

# CAUTION: This will change the Registry on the machine where

#          VShell is being installed.  Care should be taken

#          when making any changes to the Registry.

#

# Note that the value should not contain " (double

# quote) characters, even if there are spaces in the

# path.

# AUTO_REBOOT: Tells the installer to reboot or not reboot at

# the end of the installation.  If the value is NO, the

# installation, even if a reboot is required to complete the

# installation.  If the value is YES, the installer will

# reboot the machine at the end of the installation even if

# no reboot was necessary.  If this value is unspecified,

# the installer will decide if a reboot is required.

# AUTO_REBOOT=NO

# AUTO_REBOOT=YES
