You can create a provisioning file (.prvc) that pre-populates information to be used when registering a single user license: http://help.arcgis.com/en/arcgisdesktop/10.0/install_guides/license_manager_guide/index.html#//00790000002s000000.htm

This page also has the command line to execute if you need to silently register an installation using the provisioning file (and an internet connection).

Simply make a administrative install in a network environment:

msiexec /a “path_to.msi” TARGETDIR="path_to_destinantion"

Edit ensuing MSI with Orca and change, under properties table:

Tables\Property\InstallMode\Value: Typical -> Custom
Tables\Property\ESRI_LICENSE_HOST\Value:
Tables\Property\APPMODE\Value: ArcInfo -> ArcView
Tables\Property\SEAT_PREFERENCE\Value: Single -> Float
Tables\Property\SOFTWARE_CLASS\Value: Professional -> Viewer
Tables\Feature\...\Level: 3

If you need to update the MSI with another package or transform, simply command:

msiexec /a [path to administrative image .msi file] /p patch.msp

Cheers!

For a Landesk batch package I used 3 files:

1. bat script (install_arcgis10_1.bat)

2. zip file containing the installation files (arcgis10_1.zip)

3. 7zip.exe (just download the executable from www.7-zip.org)

The script queries the windows registry for product codes for specific version of ArcGIS, and uninstalls it before running the 10.1 installer (in my case i run a query for 9.2 and 9.3 and uinstall them)  For a full list of ArcGIS uinstall strings (GUID), look here: http://support.esri.com/en/knowledgebase/techarticles/detail/28709

Below is the bat script:

@echo off

A single user activation script looks something like this. The license is machine dependent.

"c:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\ArcGIS\bin\SoftwareAuthorization.exe" LIF ArcInfoEnterpriseActivation_singleuse_2012.prvc /s

But you can only run it on one machine at a time. You can get away with 1 machine per minute, but there will be some failures. There's also a license server setup.

I wrote a script in autoit to test the license. I don't know how else to do it:

opt("trayicondebug", "1")
opt("wintitlematchmode", "2") ; any substring
run("C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS\Desktop10.0\Bin\ArcCatalog.exe")
if winwait("License", "is not authorized for use.", 60) then
controlclick("License", "is not authorized for use.", "OK")
exit(1)
else
winwait("ArcCatalog")
winclose("ArcCatalog")
endif

Command Line
At a minimum, to install ArcGIS you can make a batch file to run these 3 msi:

Msiexec.exe /I <dir>\Desktop\setup.msi ADDLOCAL=ALL ESRI_LICENSE_HOST="" SOFTWARE_CLASS=Editor /qb

Msiexec.exe /I <dir>\SDK_VBA\VBA\VBAOF11.msi /qb

Msiexec.exe /I <dir>\SDK_VBA\VBA\1033\VBAOF11i.msi /qb

These last lines run the software authorization from a prvc file silently:

CD "C:\Program Files\Common Files\ArcGIS\bin\"
SoftwareAuthorization.exe -s -LIF "C:\Users\pcsetup\Desktop\ArcGis-10\ArcInfo.prvc"

Created with version 10.2.1

1) extract the Installer to a Temp location by double-clicking the downloaded installer. Cancel the automated launch when extraction completes.

2) create an AIP with the command line: msiexec /a "setup.msi" TARGETDIR="<temp path>"

3) using Orca create an MST with the following options in the PROPERTY table:

  • ESRI_LICENSE_HOST=<licensing server name>
  • SOFTWARE_CLASS=Viewer or Editor or Professional (depending on your licensing type)
  • SEAT_PREFERENCE=Fixed or Float (depending on your licensing type)
  • REBOOT=ReallySuppress
  • RestartYesNo=No
  • ISCHECKFORPRODUCTUPDATES=0
  • DESKTOP_CONFIG=TRUE
4) perform a normal msiexec /i setup.msi TRANSFORMS=transforms.mst /qn /lie %TEMP%\ArcGIS.log
5) install pre-req's as dependencies (SQL Native, Dot Net) in ConfigMgr or batch installer scripts.

Here is the uninstall string for ArcGIS 9:
msiexec /qn /X{5033400B-0977-45AB-94CE-CC135A8E1BBB} RebootYesNo="No" Reboot="ReallySuppress"

In SCCM I modified the MSI with Orca as mentioned in the above notes and then set the uninstaller to run first.
