silent install - how to prevent usage screen

Trying to install Novell Client 2 SP3 IR1a using ZCM 11. When I run
the command line, I always get the usage screen! That kills the
install. I created a NovellClientProperties.txt file. I edited the
install.ini and I am using this command line:

setup.exe /ACU /NCPF

Why would I get the usage screen? Supposedly it only pops up if I
include a "/?" with the setup.exe.

I fixed this. I put all the necessary settings in the install.ini and
ran setup.exe without any command line switches and then it ran fine.
I wish things were documented better...the docs make it look like the
above switches should have worked.

Hi,

Please give your feedback to the document writers by using the "Add Comment" option at the bottom of the web based documentation page dealing with these switches. That way we can get the documentation updated.

Thanks,
Laura Buckley
