Echec Mise à jour Pdf Creator en ligne de commande


#1

Dans mon entreprise, nous n'arrivons pas à deployer PdfCreator lorsqu'une version précedente est présente sur le poste.

Nous utilisons la ligne de commande suivante :
PDFCreator-3_2_1-Setup.exe /ForceInstall /LOADINF=custom.ini /NOCLOSEAPPLICATIONS /NORESTART

Après analyse, il s'avere que l'installeur ajoute une étape supplémentaire lors de la mise à jour de l'application en prevenant l'utilisateur que l'application est deja installé, et de confirmer que la mise à jour va avoir lieu"

Savez vous comment faire sauter cette fenetre en ligne de commande ( voir piece jointe )?

Merci pour votre aide
Cordialement,

Bonjour,

J'ai actuellement la même problématique, avez-vous trouvé une solution?

Ma ligne de commande est la suivante : PDFCreator-3_2_2-Setup.exe /ForceInstall /LoadInf="%~dp0pdfcreator.ini" /VerySilent /norestart

Merci d'avance.

Hi,

starting with PDFCreator 3.2 it is no longer to install PDFCreator free silently if the machine is part of a domain, could this be the issue? If not, the setup should create a setulog file in your %temp% folder even if it fails, which might help to find out why it is failing.

Best regards

Bonjour,

Merci de votre réponse.
Cependant nous souhaitons mettre à jour un parc informatique sur plusieurs PC. Nous souhaitons que ce soit transparent pour les utilisateurs. Avez-vous une solution de contournement ?

Merci d'avance.

Hi,

sorry I wasn't being very detailed. The silent installation is only blocked for PDFCreator free and Plus, the business editions can still be installed silently. There is no workaround to install the current 3.2 freeware or PDFCreator Plus 3.2 silently if the machine is part of a domain. More info on PDFCreator Business is located here: https://www.pdfforge.org/pdfcreator/business

Best regards

J'ai aussi le soucis.
Tu peux passer par une application du genre AdminStudio pour repackager l'application et en faire un MSI. Je commence à regarder mais c'est bien bien pénible...

Hi,

the setup is pretty complex and repackaging it could lead to any kind of malfunction or even damage the system, we will not be able to supply any form of support for repackaged setups.

You could alternatively purchase a PDFCreator Business license, the restriction only applies to the freeware and plus editions. The Business Edition already offers a proper MSI for easy deployment.
If you like, visit https://go.pdfforge.org/pdfcreator-business/upgrade for further information.

Best regards

Robin, we have understood that PDFForge want to be payed and don't want to offer anymore a PDFCreator free for companies. But I think a lot of companies have choosen PDFCreator because it was free and opensource. They will find an alternative way to install it or to create PDF.

It is still free and open source, only the ability to deploy it silently to any number of machines inside a domain has been blocked, as described in the above link
"A large proportion of “PDFCreator Free” and “PDFCreator Plus” installations is made as silent installations in companies. We have always been happy to help any user who contacted our support and we still are, but installations in corporate networks often need more support than on a single computer. At the same time, the silent installations do not show any advertisements, which we use to cover our expenses for the support and development team.

We therefore moved the ability of silent installation to the PDFCreator business editions. From version 3.2.1 on silent installations are no longer supported in “PDFCreator Free” and “PDFCreator Plus”. We kindly ask for your understanding and hope that the advances possibilities, the prioritized support and the very affordable price are the right value for your company."
