Installing dual Enterprise Clients in silent mode

You can silently install Enterprise Client Version 11.3 or greater in parallel with Enterprise client Version 10.x. This type of installation is known as unattended installation and requires a response file, setup.iss. This response file is created from your recorded first-time installation. The entire installation processes in the background without requiring user interaction.

The silent installation is divided into two parts: Record the installation (which generates the setup.iss file with the install parameters) and install the product silently using the /parallel option.

Procedure

  1. Log on to a machine with Enterprise Client version 10.x and Enterprise Client Version 11.3 or greater installer, Automation_Anywhere_Enterprise_Client_<version>.exe, downloaded.
  2. Open the Microsoft Windows command prompt and navigate to the Enterprise Client Version 11.3 or greater Setup folder.
    For example, D:\Setup\Automation_Anywhere_Enterprise_Client_<version>.exe.
  3. From the Microsoft Windows command prompt, run the Enterprise Client installer executable with the /parallel and /r options and press Enter.

    D:\Setup\>Automation_Anywhere_Enterprise_Client_<version>.exe /parallel /r

    This records the installation steps in the response setup.iss file as you do them. The setup.iss file is stored in the Microsoft Windows %SystemRoot% folder.

    The Enterprise Client 11.3 installation window appears.
  4. Follow the instructions in the Automation Anywhere Enterprise Client <version> installation wizard. See Installing the Enterprise Client.

    The /r option records the parameters you've selected during the installation wizard as a response file.

  5. Locate the setup.iss response file.
    C:\Windows\setup.iss
  6. Copy the setup.iss and paste it in the location of Automation_Anywhere_Enterprise_Client_<version>.exe.
    Note: Do not rename setup.iss.
  7. Log in to each machine to install Enterprise Client silently, open the Microsoft Windows command prompt and navigate to the Enterprise Client Version 11.3 or greater Setup folder.
    For example, D:\Setup\Automation_Anywhere_Enterprise_Client_<version>.exe.
  8. Run the installer with the /parallel and /s option. Type at the command prompt and press Enter.

    D:\Setup\>Automation_Anywhere_Enterprise_Client_<version>.exe /parallel /s

    The installation starts in silent mode. No installation screens are shown.
