How to install Picoscope using an unattended installation

Post by Guest » Fri Mar 13, 2009 11:26 pm

Is it possible to create an unattended installation using the Picoscope MSI installation file for version 6.2.2 (6_2_2).

We would like to be able to install this software without requiring user interaction.

Is it safe to say that this software is not capable of an unattended install?

Hi

You can do a silent install using the following command:

picoscope6_r6_2_2.exe /s /v"INSTALL_ALL_CONVERTERS="Yes" /qn"

Is there a resource I can view for any other silent install options/commands? I reviewed the current documentation on the site and within our software, though I have to admit I may have missed it along the way. Thank you for the reply, it will certainly come in handy, and I look forward to learning more!

Hi

See the attached document.

We don't have anyhing on these commands in our documentation as they are standard Windows Installer options.

Hope it's useful

You may run into issues with Trusted Certificates when using the command

Code: Select all

picoscope6_r6_8_8.exe /s /v"INSTALL_ALL_CONVERTERS="Yes" /qn"
For the msi installer

Code: Select all

picoscope6_r6_8_8.msi /s INSTALL_ALL_CONVERTERS="Yes" /qn
You get the following message which halts the operation and waits for interaction:

The certificates have been fixed in 6.10 and there is now one Pico certificate.
Development are not going to fixed the installer (to auto install the certificate) until picoscope 6.12 :(
I have tested installing the certificate from the command line-

Code: Select all

Certutil –addstore –f “TrustedPublisher” .\pico.cer
You may need to also install the VeriSign certificate-

Code: Select all

Certutil –addstore –f “CA” .\verisign.cer
(You will need to export certificates from the certificate tool (certmgr.msc), where PicoScope is installed-
Right click on the certificate - All tasks - export. )

The Pico Technology certificate is under - Trusted Publishers - certificates
