How to perform a silent installation

For Windows

To enable Windows users to perform a silent install on their computers, an administrator must do the following:
  1. Copy QuarkXPress on a network location. The installer creates a “setup.” file and a “silent.bat” file in the folder where the installer is located.
  2. Open the “silent.bat” file in Notepad and make sure the first line contains the path of the “setup.exe” file, as follows:
    '&ltpath of setup.exe&gt' /s /v'/qn'. For example: '\\Server_Name\QuarkXPress\QuarkXPress70\Windows\setup.exe' /s /v'/qn'
To perform a silent install on Windows, a user should do the following:
  1. Copy the installer folder containing the “setup.” and “silent.bat” files to your computer from the CD.
  2. Disable any virus protection software.
  3. Double-click the “silent.bat” file. A console window displays the path where the installer is located, and then disappears when the installation is complete.
