Summary

This document is intended to provide instructions for creating silent installers for iRise Definition Center, based on the the Inno Setup platform.

Only to be used with the new installer from v9.2.2 onwards. Earlier versions of Definition Center cannot be silently installed.​

Instructions

You can either create the response file manually by copying the response file information further in this KB article and editing for your own site or you can generate your own response file, which would install a Definition Center, taking the values you supply during a normal install, and generating a response file with your parameters.

Option 1: Create the response file

  1. Download v9.2.2 or above of Definition Center
  2. Open a command prompt window (Start > Run > cmd)
  3. Open My Computer and browse to the directory where the installer is saved
  4. Drag the installer from the directory listing in the My Computer window to the command prompt
  5. Add /saveinf="C:\response_file.inf" to the end of the string in the command line, e.g:
     
     C:\iRise_DefCenter_64_v9.2.2.0_b1556.exe /saveinf="C:\response_file.inf"
  6. Press Enter and go through the installation of the Definition Center with the parameters required. After installation, the response file should be created.

Option 2: Paste the values below into a response file

[Setup]
Lang=en
Dir=C:\iRise
Group=iRise
NoIcons=0
Tasks=
[Custom]
DataDir=C:\iRise\data
PortNumber=443
FQDN=localhost

Values in bold are parameters that can be modified to suit your installation. Language values are en (English), es (Spanish) or de (German). Save the file e.g. response_file.inf

Run the silent install

  1. Open the command prompt (Start > Run > cmd)
  2. Open My Computer and browse to the directory where the installer is saved
  3. Drag the installer from the directory listing in the My Computer window to the command prompt
  4. Add /loadinf=[response file] /verysilent /suppressmsgboxes to the end of the string in the command line, e.g:
     
     C:\>iRise_DefCenter_64_v9.2.2.0_b1556.exe /loadinf="C:\response_file.inf" /verysilent /suppressmsgboxes
  5. Press Enter

Post Installation

A silent install will not run the Migration Tool or Administrator Password Reset Tool and will not start the Definition Center windows service. These must be done manually as needed.
 
 On a fresh silent install, the data folder will get created when the Definition Center windows service is started. Additionally, there is no prompt for the Administrator password, therefore it will default to Administrator.

1. Check the installation logs, located in x:\iRise\DefCenter\installlogs​
 2. Install the Definition Center license file
 3. Run the Library Import Tool:
 
 Open a command line and navigate to x:\iRise\DefCenter\bin folder. Run the Library Import Tool runLibraryImport.cmd with the name of the library import log file you wish to create, and the location of your data folder, e.g.
 

C:\iRise\DefCenter\bin:\>runLibraryImport.cmd C:\iRise\DefCenter\installlogs\LibraryImport.log C:\iRise C:\iRise\data
 
 4. Start the Definition Center windows service

Silent Uninstall

Use the below syntax to silently uninstall the Definition Center. The program used to uninstall is unins000.exe and is located in the install folder (by default C:\iRise). This can be run from a command line or via a batch file.

To silently uninstall, open a command prompt and run the command with the parameters /verysilent /suppressmessageboxes. e.g:
 ​

C:\iRise:\>unins000.exe /verysilent /suppressmessageboxes
