The traditional and msi installers can both be utilized from the command line for installing and uninstalling SwiftView. Several options for both installer types are listed below.
normal install: >msiexec.exe /i svinstall.msi
This will launch the MSI installer in the same manner as if it was double clicked on. You will still need to walk through the installers dialogs manually and choose your options.
silent install: >msiexec.exe /quiet /i svinstall.msi
This method will install SwiftView using the default settings silently requiring no user interaction. Using the /quiet flag will require elevated\admin privileges for the command prompt if UAC is enabled on machine. Being logged in to Windows as a local Administrator is not enough to prevent the installation process from failing when run from a standard command prompt.
alternate location: >msiexec.exe /quiet /i svinstall.msi TARGETDIR=”C:\foo”
Installs SwiftView silently to a location other than the default of C:\Program Files (x86)\SwiftView.
uninstall: >msiexec.exe /x svinstall.msi
The /x option will uninstall SwiftView if it was installed using the MSI installer. You can use the /quiet option in conjunction with the /x option as long as the same rights criteria is met.
normal install: >svinstall.exe
This will launch the installer in the same manner as if it was double clicked on. The progress bar will be displayed during installation but will only require the user to click on the install complete dialog.
quiet install: >svinstall.exe -q
The quiet install method will suppress the normal installation progress bar and the install complete dialog if successful. Any installation error messages will be displayed for user acknowledgment.
silent install: >svinstall.exe -s
The silent install method will suppress the normal installation progress bar and the install complete dialog like the quiet option but will also suppress installation error messages.
alternate location: >svinstall.exe -p-pC:\foo
Installs SwiftView to a location other than the default of C:\Program Files (x86)\SwiftView. The -q or -s arguments can be used in conjunction with this option.
uninstall: >svinstall.exe -p-U
Uninstalls the current SwiftView installation.
