Create a silent install response file

Create a response file for use with a Enterprise Client silent installation. This response file is a recording of, and provides the responses a user would make when, manually installing the Enterprise client.

To create a separate response file for 32- and 64-bit operating system versions, follow these steps:


  1. Log in to a machine with the Automation Anywhere Setup and locate the Enterprise Client installer.
  2. Execute the Enterprise Client installer with the /r option from Windows Command.

    Run the Command Prompt in Administrator mode as the setup.iss gets created in the C:\Windows folder by default.

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

    Note: The silent installation only recognizes and applies a language selected from the Ready to install the Program wizard. Languages selected later are not applicable.
  3. 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.

  4. Locate the setup.iss response file.
  5. Copy the setup.iss and paste it in the location of Automation_Anywhere_Enterprise_Client_<version>.exe.
    Note: Do not rename setup.iss.
