RemoteScan silent installation configuration is useful for creating .msi files for deploying RemoteScan onto several workstations or installing RemoteScan via a scripted install. Installing RemoteScan silently involves running the installer from a command prompt or batch file. The basic command looks like this: RemoteScanEnterpriseASP.exe /s server "install path" [update_citrix_client] [start_server] [hide_program_group] [as_service] Where the arguments are defined as follows: RemoteScanEnterpriseASP.exe - The name of the installer, keep in mind that this may be slightly different depending on the version of RemoteScan that you have purchased. /s - A flag that tells the installer to run in "silent" mode with no user interface server - Indicates which RemoteScan component to install. The "server" is the component to install on the local workstation. "install path" - This is the path to install RemoteScan to. Typically "C:\Program Files (x86)\RemoteScan Server". update_citrix_client - A 'Y' or 'N' flag indicating whether to update the Citrix ICA client. Only put a Y here if you are using RemoteScan with Citrix. start_server - A 'Y' or 'N' flag indicating if you would like the RemoteScan Server component to run after installation is complete. Normally, you will want to put a Y here. hide_program_group - A 'Y' or 'N' flag indicating whether to hide the RemoteScan program group. Normally set to 'N'. as_service - A 'Y' or 'N' flag indicating whether to install and run the RemoteScan Server as a service. For Terminal Services and Citrix, we strongly discourage running RemoteScan as a service and suggest using a 'N' here.
What is the argument for silently installing this on the actual terminal server - specifically in a VMware Horizon environment? Can you give an example command?
The RemoteScan silent installer is only used to install the RemoteScan server software onto the local desktops. For installing onto a VMware environment, please see Installing RemoteScan onto VMware.
