Setup Command Line Parameters

The Setup program accepts some optional command line parameters:

Parameter Description
/sp- Disables the This will install... Do you wish to continue? prompt at the beginning of Setup.
/silent, /verysilent Instructs Setup to be silent or very silent. When Setup is silent, the wizard and the background window are not displayed but the installation progress window is. When Setup is very silent this installation progress window is not displayed.
Everything else is normal so, for example, error messages during installation are displayed and the startup prompt is (if you haven't disabled it with the /sp- command line option explained above).
If a restart is necessary and the /norestart command wasn't used (see below) and Setup is silent, it will display the Reboot now? message box. If it's very silent, it will reboot without asking.
/norestart Instructs Setup not to reboot even if it's necessary.
/dir="x:\dirname" Overrides the default directory name displayed on the Select Destination Directory wizard page. A fully qualified pathname must be specified.
/group="<folder_name>" Overrides the default folder name displayed on the Select Start Menu Folder wizard page.
