Millwork Development creates the installer for the AutoLauncher using InstallShield, along with the standard Windows Installer library. Users will download an InstallShield wrapper called setup.exe or setupRDP.exe to begin the installation. This wrapper will then launch an .msi file to run the Windows installer.
Administrators are able to use InstallShield and msiexec.exe cli flags to customize how the installation appears on a users computer. One common example is to run the installation silently, so that user interaction isn't required. This can be accomplished by running these flags via cmd.exe or with PowerShell:
<path to setupRDP.exe> /s /v"/qn"
- /s runs InstallShield silently
- /v passes parameters to msiexec.exe
- /qn tells msiexec.exe to run with no UI
Please note that running without a UI (/qn) will not allow the UAC admin consent prompt to show, meaning that installations to Program Files will fail! Better alternatives are /qr (reduced UI), or /passive (shows UI but requires no user input).
There are many ways an administrator can customize the installation process using flags and parameters. To see all of the options available to you, see the following articles:
