# Description

This feature is available beginning with AccuTerm 8 release 8.0.

# Automated Deployment

Overview

For automated installation, you need to create a setup.ini file, which the installer will use for any installation options. Place this file in the same directory as the AccuTerm installer.exe

Note: Please ensure these fields are filled correctly.

  • ALLUSERS=Y
  • AUTOACTIVATE=Y
  • AUTOUPGRADE=Y
  • LICENSEKEY=xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx
  • KEYTYPE=1

The AUTOACTIVATE, LICENSEKEY & KEYTYPE fields only make sense when using device licensing.

The setup.ini file needs to be in the same directory as the installer.exe. You can use whatever mechanism you have for automated installation. Use the /VERYSILENT command line switch when invoking the installer unattended.
