In some environments, it’s not possible to use a .ini configuration file to configure the .msi installer when performing a silent installation (such as when deploying via Intune). In cases like this, you can still deploy our software and instruct the .msi installer what components of the software to install by using parameters when executing the installer. This article details a list of supported command line parameters that can be used for each of our products. Please note that any parameters shown in bold are required for the installation to be complete successfuly.
