A silent install provides InstallShield Wizard with instructions for installing Novell SecureLogin. To use a silent install, you must use a response file.
A response file is a text file (responsefile.ini) containing sections and keys. The response file is created during installation in <WidowsVolume>\NSLFiles\responsefile.ini. It captures your responses to the dialogs thatyou encounter during the installation. This is later used as an input for silent installation.
IMPORTANT:During silent install, the PATHTOISS property must contain the absolute path to responsefile.ini. If it is a relative path or if the file path is invalid, then Novell SecureLogin installation is aborted.
An administrator runs the graphical installer on a single machine. During the install, the administrator selects the configuration he or she wants to roll out to the machines of the target users.
At the end of the installation a response file is created and available located in <windows Volume>\NSLFiles. It contains the command line properties required to replicate the graphical installation the administrator has done.
The administrator can take this response file and copy it to the target machines or to a mapped network drive for use with target machine installs.
The administrator runs command line installs on all of the target machines using the following command pointing to the newly created response file:
msiexec /i "Novell SecureLogin.msi" PATHTOISS="c:\temp\response.ini"
If you use the command line installation with a response file on Microsoft Windows Vista platform, disable the User Access Control before starting the install.
You can create a new response file or edit one from a previous installation. During the installation, the responsefile.ini is created in the <WindowsVolume>\NSLFiles folder. It is recommended that you do not modify the responsefile.ini.
IMPORTANT:Non-English users must first run MSI with transform file and then run the update sequentially.
The following is an example of a response file.
