What is the proper method for the CaliberRM 2008 Client silent install?

The CaliberRM installation package comes as a "self-extracting" executable. The silent install will NOT work using this executable. Running this executable creates a "Installations" directory, which is a breakdown of all the CaliberRM components. In this installations directory, there will be a CaliberRM client directory, which is what will be used to run the silent install.

1. Run the CaliberRM installation executable to create the installation directory.

2. After the executable un-packs and creates the installations directory, the setup wizard will open. Close the wizard. (The installations directory will be created at (drive:\Program Files\Borland\Installations\CaliberRM XXXX\)

* Now to start the silent install *

3. Open a command prompt and change directory to the client component of the installations directory "\Program Files\Borland\Installations\CaliberRM XXXX\CaliberRM\". For example:

cd C:\Program Files\Borland\Installations\CaliberRM 2008\CaliberRM\

4. Now run the silent install setup command from this directory:

Setup.exe /V"/qn+ ALLCLIENT=YES" /L1033 /S

The install will silently run and depending on your machines processor and memory, take 5 to 15 minutes. Upon its completion, there will be a prompt stating the client has been succsessfully installed.

Usage of switches and disabling specific components.

The "ALLCLIENT=YES" switch enables all client components to be installed.

There are various "NO" options that can be selected to disable specific components from being installed with the Client.

Does not install CaliberRM Administrator

Does not install Requirement Viewer

Does not install Export and Import components

Does not install StarTeam Toolbar

Does not install samples data

There are 2 undocumented "NO" options:

This option will not install Estimate Pro

This option will not install Datamart

Specific languages can be installed by using the language switches.

English - /L1033
French - /L1036
German - /L1031
Japanese - /L1041

Here is an example of a full command using all "NO" options and the English language.


** Please note **
When copy and pasting text with quotes into the command prompt, windows converts the double quotes to "smart quotes" and therefor causes Windows Installer to fail. After the string is pasted into the command window, use the arrow keys to manualy delete and re-type double quotes.
