Note. I've updated the name of this thread to "Silent Installation without Toolbar 1.2.0" since the release of 1.2.0.
The problem of installing without toolbar still exists. I've read several posts on this but no-one seems to have cracked it. In addition I have read this FAQ page which details all the command line parameters:
So, this is what I have just tried. First I need to generate an ini file containing all the required setup parameters:
I run through the setup and "pdfcreator.ini" is created with all the options I choose, such as not installing the toolbar. The generated ini file looks like this:
Dir=C:\\Program Files (x86)\\PDFCreator
So far so good... :)
Then on a test machine that currently has v1.0.2 installed, I run the following command to execute the installer with all the correct parameters:
This prompts me to remove the old version first, but I need this to happen automatically. I add the /ForceInstall switch and bunch of others that seem appropriate:
"PATH\\PDFCreator-1_2_0_setup.exe" /ForceInstall /VERYSILENT /NOCANCEL /NORESTART /LOADINF:"PATH\\PDFCreator.ini"
This seems to work just fine... The old version is removed, the new version is installed, there are no prompts... BUT the toolbar is still installed!
We only want to install the PDF printer. Why doesn't this work? Why is there not an FAQ article showing us how to do this?
Any help greatly appreciated.
