Still UI when using commandline /s /w /v" /qn

05/15/2012 3552 views

When installing VMware vSphere Client 5.0, I used the commandline /s /w /v" /qn but I still see the extracting window. Is there a way to hide is completely?


Answer Summary:
Extract the MSI as it supports all standard command lines. If you want to use the executable installer, you may use /qr (reduced interface) but not /qn (no interface).

you could try extracting the MSI from the installer and using that directly.

  • I know, I saw it on http://www.itninja.com/software/vmware/vsphere-client but they want to install it from the .exe with a command line...

Most EXE installers which call out to an MSI do not tolerate any white space between the switch '/V' and the passed parameter(s). Thus, you might find that it works like this:
   /s /w /v"/qn"

The exe does support reduced UI option (/qr) and not the /qn option.
