All Typefi software packages are standardised and enable administrators to silently install our software through scripting, automation, and group policy. Typefi installers are presented as bootstrapped executables (*.exe) or as Microsoft Installer (*.msi) packages. Typefi customers can expect the following capabilities from all of our packages:
- Clear indication administrative privileges are required by the icon of the package.
- Manual execution with predicable dialogues.
- Optional advanced logging available.
- Silent installation options.
|Silent installations without any user interaction||/quiet or /qn|
|Public Property for installation path||APPDIR|
Examples in Scripting
Below is a collection of examples for installing Typefi packages with short explanations of their purpose.
msiexec /i "Typefi<package>.msi" /qn
Typefi<package>.exe /l*v Typefi<package>.log
msiexec /i "Typefi<package>.msi"/l*v Typefi<package>.log
Custom Installation Path (with silent options)
Typefi<package>.exe APPDIR="D:\PAYLOAD" /qn
msiexec /i "Typefi<package>.msi" APPDIR="D:\PAYLOAD"
Common use examples
This is the most common permutation of the command sequence, where the application is installed silently and an advanced log is generated for auditing purposes:
Typefi<package>.exe /quiet /l*v Typefi<package>.log
msiexec /i "Typefi<package>.msi" /qn /l*v Typefi<package>.log
Write-Host "The installer is:" $installer
Start-Process $installer -ArgumentList '/qn /l*v C:\ops\logs\bootstrap_typefi_designer_install.txt' -Verb runAs -Wait
Start-Process msiexec.exe -ArgumentList '/i Typefi<package>.msi /q' -Verb runAs -Wait
