Scripted install of ggw windows client 6 Years, 10 Months ago Karma: 0
Has anyone compiled a scripted installation of the ggw windows client that performs a silent install requiring no interaction from the end user? If so could you please contact me with the details? Thank you very much.

We are in the process of starting a fairly large rollout of the ggw Windows client and I would like to make it as painless for the end user as possible.

In GO-Global version 4.0 the file for installing the client is an msi file. If you run the .exe file from our website, and then before clicking 'Next', look in the following directory:

Code:

C:\Users\username\Local Settings\Temp\{EB82528D-29DC-427C-A21E-34C9BB406214}


On Windows 7, look in:
Code:

C:\ProgramData\Downloaded Installations\GraphOn\GO-Global Client\{DA4BB0AB-78CF-4C79-B63C-1610D0117381}

C:\Users\All Users\Downloaded Installations\GraphOn\GO-Global Client\{DA4BB0AB-78CF-4C79-B63C-1610D0117381}



You will see a file called GO-Global Client.msi.

With this msi file you will be able to install the client silently, using the msiexec.exe utility which comes with Windows.

An example of installing this silently is as follows –

Code:

msiexec /i c:\GOGlobalClient\GOGlobalClient.msi  /quiet /log install.log


For the example above, the GO-Global Client.msi file was renamed to GOGlobalClient.msi and was copied to a folder on the local 'C' drive called C:\GOGlobalClient. You can create a batch file called run.bat with the above command, run it from this directory, and it will install the GO-Global Client silently on the machine.

This is a great response with precise detail. Thank you very much for the prompt reply. However, I tried this with 3.2.1 and was unable to generate the msi file.

If you have further suggestions please post.

Many thanks again.
