Silent Install Commands

This topic describes the silentinstall command syntax for InfoMaker.

[ "opt=product" "dir=directoryName" "shr=sharedDirectoryName" "log=logFileName" ]
[ { help | /? } ]

The parameters can be listed in any order and are not case sensitive. Parameter values are also not case sensitive.

Silent installation parameter



Specifies the name of the product to install.

This parameter needs not to be specified because it automatically takes InfoMaker as the value.


Indicates the main installation directory. If you omit this parameter, silentinstall installs the product to the sysDriver\Program Files\Appeon\productName directory, where sysDriver is the main computer drive, and productName is InfoMaker 2019.


Indicates the shared directory for InfoMaker. If you omit this parameter, this directory installs to sysDriver\Program Files\Appeon\Shared.


Names the log file for the installation. If you omit this parameter, the log file is written to the system Temp directory with the file name, silentinstall.log.

help or /?

Displays command syntax and parameters instead of running the command.

The following example uses all parameters for the silent installation command:

silentinstall.bat "dir=D:\appeon\im190" "shr=D:\appeon\shared" "log=D:\appeon\install.log"

When installing InfoMaker, the log file includes a warning if the computer does not have a working copy of SQL Anywhere. If SQL Anywhere is not found, the demonstration databases and code examples are not installed for InfoMaker.
