Advanced Installation



Quiet Install

A quiet (or silent) install means ZIP Express will be installed without the user having to answer any questions during the installation process. This is helpful for installing ZIP Express from within another setup program or installing from a server on a network.

The /quiet command line parameter tells the ZIP Express installer to do a quiet Install. This option must include the slash and must be in all lowercase. The ZIP Express Setup program must be run with elevated privileges (as administrator) when the /quiet parameter is used.

ZIP Express will not be automatically launched when the /quiet option is used during installation.


Installation options
These command line options allow you to adjust how ZIP Express is installed. You can choose things such as where to install the program, whether ZIP Express should be put in the Startup folder so it is automatically launched when Windows starts, or whether the Quick Start Guide should be displayed after ZIP Express is installed.

Each option consists of a property name and value separated by an = sign. Property names must be in UPPERCASE, no spaces are allowed on either side of the = sign, and property values that are literal strings must be enclosed in quotation marks.

INSTALLPATH="c:\myprograms\ZIP Express"
Used to override the default installation folder.

STARTUP=N
Tells the ZIP Express installer to not create a shortcut in the Windows Startup folder that launches ZIP Express when Windows starts up.

QUICKSTART=N
Do not display the Quick Start Guide when the program is launched for the first time.
