    run dmc setup passing:

    <Silent>

    on the command line.

    Thanks, Spoon, but I tried it and it didn't work, here's an example of a batch command I use for Nero Burning Rom, using a similar technique:

    ECHO Installing Nero Ultra Burning ROM v6.0.0.23
    ECHO Please wait...
    start /wait %systemdrive%\Nero\Nero60023.exe /silent /noreboot
    ECHO.
    ECHO Registering Nero Ultra Burning ROM...
    REGEDIT /S %systemdrive%\Nero\Register.reg
    ECHO.
    EXIT, I even tried that particular command structure, and even THAT didn't work with dB10....... now, I'm lost...lol

    make sure you have the right case:

    <Silent>

    it should work, Sveta installs dMC this way.

    Well, Spoon, it doesn't...so I'm completely lost....... I have no Idea


    This is what I've inputed to try out:

    Start - Run - c:\db10Gold.exe /s
    Start - Run - c:\db10Gold.exe <Silent>
    Start - Run - c:\db10Gold.exe /S
    Start - Run - c:\db10Gold.exe -u -s

    they're no good, I still get the Install popup as orignal

    Re: Silent Install using command switches in a batch command

    Try:

    Start - Run - "c:\db10Gold.exe" <Silent>

    If will offer to uninstall the old version, I have fixed this for the final r10 release.

    THANKS ALOT SPOON! I just wanted to know if there's any way to exclude the final window? Does this switch work with File Selector and Powerpack?


    THANKS,
    STEVE

    Thanks for that switch. BTW if you want the last screen to disappear when its finish installing just use the taskkill.exe to stop it. Like this, "taskkill.exe /F /IM musicconverter.exe". That worked for me, so I'm guessing you may have some success with it also.

    Those two are using the old installer so not until they are updated.

    Re: Silent Install using command switches in a batch command

    Is there anyway to make this work thru a DOS batch file?

    It works fine in WinXP, using Start->Run.
    But if I try to do it thru a dos batch file it doesn't work.

    IE)
    start /wait %cdrom%\other\$more\dbamp\setup.exe <Silent>
    start /wait "%cdrom%\other\$more\dbamp\setup.exe" <Silent>
    %cdrom%\other\$more\dbamp\setup.exe <Silent>
    "%cdrom%\other\$more\dbamp\setup.exe" <Silent>
    etc

    never works. I either get spit out of the dos command window, or i get
    The syntax of the command is incorrect and it pauses my installation in

    even just going to my DVDRom drive and into the folder and typing
    setup.exe <Silent>
    i get invalid syntax.


    Like I said, it works fine using Start->Run. But I dont want that.
    I want it to be able to install via COMMAND window.
    I have an unattended install DVD, I'd like dbpoweramp to be installed automatically. I utilize BATCH file commands to install all the programs.
    This one does not work. Any ideas?

    Re: Silent Install using command switches in a batch command

    I'm using this:

    @echo off
    ECHO.
    ECHO Installing dbpoweramp
    ECHO Please wait...
    start /wait %systemdrive%\dMC-r10.exe /s
    ECHO.

    it's still gives me install screen

    I have tryed this:
    start /wait %systemdrive%\dMC-r10.exe <silent>
    then nothing happens...

    what am I doing wrong??
