Problem(Abstract)

Listing of command line switches for use with the TEM Client installer.

Resolving the problem

TEM versions 8+

The TEM Client has the following behavior for these flags:

  • Silent Install to default location (c:\Program Files\BigFix Enterprise \BES Client)
    Setup.exe /s /v/qn
  • Silent install to non-default location
    setup.exe /s /v"INSTALLDIR=\"Install Path\" /qn"
  • Silent Uninstall
    Setup.exe /s /x /v/qn
  • Create an MSI log file
    setup.exe /s /v"/l*voicewarmup \"path to log file\install.log\" /qn"
    The location for the logfile path must exist and be writable by the user running the installation in order for the installer to complete. Otherwise, the InstallShield installer will try to write the file to a directory with restricted permissions and silently fail. To fix this issue, add a command-line parameter to the installer to write the logfile to a writable location.

TEM versions 7.2 and lower

The TEM Client has the following behavior for these flags:

  • Silent Install to default location (c:\Program Files\BigFix Enterprise\BES Client)
    Setup.exe /s
  • Silent install to non-default location
    Setup.exe /s --InstallFolder="InstallPath"
  • InstallShield log
    Setup.exe -DebugLogDir="log path"
  • Silent Uninstall
    Setup.exe /s --uninstallsilent
  • Set a log file
    Setup.exe /s /f2"log path"
    The location for the logfile path must exist and be writable by the user running the installation in order for the installer to complete. Otherwise the InstallShield installer will try to write the file to a directory with restricted permissions and silently fail. To fix this issue, add a command-line parameter to the installer to write the logfile to a writable location. For example: Setup.exe /s /f2"C:\tempinstall.log"

In addition, if the TEM Client is already installed then running the silent install will re-install the TEM Client. That is to say, "Setup.exe /s" run once will install the TEM Client and when run again will update the installation to a new version or to a new masthead.

Note: these switches are applicable to the Windows TEM Client only.
