Silent Installation - with all silent activation

Post by Fresenius2020 » Tue Mar 16, 2021 8:54 pm

Hi,

we want to install NiceLabel 2019 silently. We found the NiceLabel silent Installation documentation page and the installation works with the parameters we found there. However, we have not found a parameter with which we can activate the software completely silent. Are there such parameters for that?

We want to activate the software via our control center. We have LMS Enterprise and our Control Center is installed on a server in our network. At the moment it is already going so far, that after the silent installation we only have to open the application, the server is already preset and we only have to click on Connect to complete the activation. We achieve this with the parameter "CONTROLCENTERSERVER = http: // ...". Is it possible without this last step and therefore without any visible activation window after the silent installation?

thanks for any help ;)

Hi,

Yes, you can use command-line parameters like below:
NiceLabel2019.exe /s LICENSECODE=12345abcde12345abcde12345 ACTIVATIONNAME=Name ACTIVATIONCOMPANY=Company ACTIVATIONCOUNTRY=Country ACTIVATIONEMAIL=user@example.com ACTIVATIONUPDATESNOTIFICATION=True CONTROLCENTERSERVER=http://server/epm

When Designer is first launched, we don't know if the defined Control Center Server location is valid or not, if it's fully connected with WebDAV, etc. so the check connection is expected. You can just connect or skip after that. Otherwise product.config can also be pre-configured with the install too:
https://www.nicelabel.com/support/knowl ... ductconfig

There's an area for Control Center parameters:

Code: Select all

<ControlCenter>
      <WasLocationDialogShown>True</WasLocationDialogShown>
      <Server>http://server/epm</Server>
</ControlCenter>

Mytch

Hi,

thanks for your responds.

Then you write "the check Connection is expected", you mean this is definitely shown to the user after the Installation and can not be hidden?

best regards
Jörn

Jörn,

I had to test this a few times to verify... but using parameter CONTROLCENTERSERVER=http://server/epm is used just for the Control Center URL activation option, not for connecting your installation to Control Center for Document Storage, etc. CONTROLCENTERSERVER will require manual prompt on first launch by default. So you should really use LICENSECODE or CONTROLCENTERSERVER but not both.

You can still pre-configure the product.config to get around this, as described:
https://www.nicelabel.com/support/knowl ... ductconfig

There's an area for Control Center parameters:

Code: Select all

<ControlCenter>
      <WasLocationDialogShown>True</WasLocationDialogShown>
      <Server>http://server/epm</Server>
</ControlCenter>
Regards,
Mytch
