Silent Installation Guide

The silent installer allows you to install the Appeon PowerServer on Windows in a silent mode. And before you could run the setup program in a silent mode, you would need to configure all of the settings required by the setup program beforehand. Instead of making the configurations and selections in graphical user interface throughout the installation process, you predefine these configurations and selections in the SilentInstall.ini configuration file and then the setup program will automatically read this file for any value or settings whenever needed.

The silent installer can install any of the Appeon components, including PowerServer Mobile/Web (.NET), PowerServer Toolkit, PowerServer Web Component, and PowerServer Help. And the required settings of these components are specified in the same configuration file -- SilentInstall.ini -- located under the root directory of the PowerBuilder installation package, for example, ...\PB\SilentInstall.ini.

Each Appeon component folder has a silent installer (SilentInstall.bat) which can be run individually. You can also configure the PowerBuilder silent installer to run all of the silent installers automatically.

You will have to first copy all of the files for the silent installer to the local machine.

You must have Administrator privileges to silently install or uninstall this product.
