1.3. Scripting the 8.x Course License Workstation Install

Applies to MSI installer for:
Course License end-user software (independent workstation only) 6.x/7.x/8.x

To script a client/server network install of a course license, see Scripting the Client Install.

How can I script the install for my course license, if I've chosen the independent workstation configuration?

For SCCM installs or other forms of scripting, you probably want an MSI installer. Please contact Palisade Technical Support to request one, and please include your serial number with your request. When you get the link, make certain that the file includes "-cust-" in its name.

Your script must install the prerequisite software before installing our software from an MSI installer. See the appropriate one of these articles:

For the client install, you will need the Palisade_Course.lic file that was emailed to you when you bought the course license. That file should be in a local folder, not necessarily the same folder with the installer. The following commands use C:\TEMP; please substitute the actual folder that contains the Palisade_Course.lic file. It must be the actual path—constructs like .\ won't work.

Either way, replace C:\TEMP following SETUPEXEDIR with the actual folder that contains Palisade_Course.lic. It must be the actual path; ".\" and similar won't work. Guidelines for the SETUPEXEDIR folder:

Variation — no desktop shortcuts:

The attended install has a checkbox for putting shortcuts on the desktop. To suppress those desktop shortcuts (equivalent to removing the check mark from the box), add the DTOPSHORTCUTS=0 parameter:

msiexec /i installername.msi SETUPEXEDIR=C:\TEMP /qn USERNAME="firstname lastname" COMPANYNAME="company" DTOPSHORTCUTS=0
