Silent installation does not work

Reported by: qk Owned by:
Priority: major Component: installer
Version: VirtualBox 3.2.12 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Windows

Description

Win 7, 64 bit

c:\Users\tDesktop>VirtualBox-3.2.12-68302-Win.exe -msiparams "INSTALLDIR=c:\use rs\tdesktop\vb"

shows this error message: Unknown option "INSTALLDIR=c:\users\tdesktop\vb"! Please refer to the command line help by specifying "/?" to get more information.

My suggestion would be to provide the program also as a .zip file for download.

Did you ever consider to run the .exe application with the /? parameter as suggested in the error message?

yes. I also consider myself to be cleverer than you, but maybe I am wrong.

This is not the question if someone is more clever but the /? option clearly states what to specify. Before reopening this ticket please clearly write what you tried and what was the result. You did it definitely wrong in the description and the help text shows what to do.

I take that back. According to the documentation your command line was correct, so something is wrong with the installer. <app>.exe -extract works, but not when specifying the path.

thanks for looking into this. Sorry for my comment. I just found yours a little discourteous.
