Is there a way to install DefineIT silently? Previous attempts resulted in a pop up screen for the Install Shield Progress bar waiting on a user response.


1. Create an installer.properties file as



2. Run the installer executable as : -f installer.properties. You can see a window appear showing the extraction process (to temp directory), and after that, nothing should be shown but the installation process keeps running.

After a while -- you can check that install is complete through the process monitor -- when the installation is finished, you get a copy in the corresponding directory.
