Software Deployment Question

nVidia driver package automate installing all components for mass deployment

06/08/2012 8756 views

I'm trying to automate an install of all components, including NVIDIA WMI, for the nVidia driver package:
Quadro/Tesla Desktop Driver Release 295 WHQL ver 296.70 release date 4.5.2012

So far I have this command which does a silent install with noreboot, but does not install NVWMI.
setup.exe -s -n -log:%temp%\nvidialogs -loglevel:6

Looking at the logs from a manual install, when selecting NVWMI, the property "NVSupportNVWmi" is set. So I've appended NVSupportNVWmi as a property to setup.cfg and used it on the command line, but this did not work.

Setup.cfg (tags removed for post)
  bool name="nvwmi" property="NVSupportNVWmi"

setup.exe -s -n -nvwmi -log:%temp%\nvidialogs -loglevel:6

I'm now thinking I might need to add this as a feature property, as seen in the log:
....SetPropertyForPackage : Setting property  "Feature.NvWmi" for "Display.NVWMI".

Has anyone achieved this yet? I have logged it with nVidia but it's been two weeks with no help so far and they have not documented how to customise automated installs.
I'd like to deploy v301.42 but this also looks to have the same limitations.

To provide a nVidia silent install and control the components that will install you can use this command line syntax:


setup.exe -s -n -ignorepnp Display.NView Display.NVWMI -log"C:\Logs\nVidia_QuadroDrivers301.42whql" -loglevel:6
