-silentInitiates a silent installation.
-install_dir "path"Specifies the directory to which the product is to be installed. For the installation directory, you must enclose the path in quotes if you have spaces in the pathname. If you want the product to install to the default location, you can omit the -install_dir argument. The default location is <os drive>:\Program Files\ANSYS Inc\.
-product_flagSpecifies one or more products to install. If you omit the -product_flag argument, all products will be installed. See the list of valid product_flags above.
-productfile "path"You can specify an options file that lists the products you want to install. To do so, you must provide a full path to a file containing desired products. See Specifying Products with an Options File for more details.
-disablerssDisables automatic internet feeds to ANSYS, Inc. products.
-caspolAllows the .NET binaries that are located under the \ANSYS Inc directory on the shared machine to be run from the network. You must have administrative privileges to modify the security policy. Use this option when you specify a network location as the installation directory. To understand the implications of this security exception for .NET, please contact your system administrator or see Microsoft’s website http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/7c9c2y1w(v=vs.80).aspx.
-helpDisplays a list of valid arguments for a silent installation.
-licfilepath "path"Specifies the location of the license file to install. If the path is not specified or if the path is the same as the existing license file, the license file will not be installed. Valid only when doing a silent license manager installation (setupLM.exe).
-setliclang languageSpecifies a language to use for the server ANSLIC_ADMIN utility and the ANSYS, Inc. Licensing Interconnect log file. Use the language directory name in the language subdirectory of the licensing directory (en-usfrde, etc.) as the language value. This flag can be used during a GUI installation as well. Valid only when doing a license manager installation (setupLM.exe).
-licserverinfoSpecifies information to be used by the client for the license server. Valid only in conjunction with a silent installation (setup.exe). The format is:

Single license server:

LI port number:FLEXlm port number:hostname



Three license servers:

LI port number:FLEXlm port number:hostname1,hostname2,hostname3



The default values for the Licensing Interconnect and FlexNet port numbers (2325 and 1055, respectively) will be used if they are not specified. However, you do need to include the colons. In a three-server environment, you also need to enclose the values in quotes (Windows only).





Information specified via -licserverinfo will be appended to existing information in the ansyslmd.ini file. To change information already in your ansyslmd.ini file, you must use the ANSLIC_ADMIN utility.

-nohelpBy default, for the products that are being installed, all help documentation is included. The -nohelp argument removes all help from the installation.
-langSpecifies a language to use for the products.
