Silent installation of App Control 8.2.1 not working

Jump to solution

The silent install does not work with 8.2.1

The command seems succesful, but there are no files installed to C:\Program Files\McAfee\Solidcore.

The folder is empty.

 

Version 7: setup-win-7-2008r2-amd64-7.0.1.248.exe /s /v"/qb UNLICVER=1"

Version 8.2.1: setup-win-7-2008r2-amd64-8.2.1.143.exe /s /v"/qb UNLICVER=1"

Both same results, no files, if a license is specified or not.

The driver is installed and running though.

 

I tired also, without success:

setup-win-7-2008r2-amd64-8.2.1.143.exe /s /v"/qb UNLICVER=1 ADDLOCAL=Common,Driver_W7_2008R2"

 

(when installed non-silent using the wizard, all files get installed just fine)

i found out that /qn works.

So, basic GUI /qb does not work, but no GUI does.

Hi @mfriedrich 

I am glad to hear you were able to find the solution.

As per installation guide /qn is the supported switch.

Yep. As per Microsoft and Installshield manuals /qb is supposed to work too. You can treat this as a bug report.

You would need to open a case if you believe this is a bug.

I do not rely on this switch. I can live with /qn. I leave it up to you to notify your development team of this bug. You got enough information in the above report to reproduce the issue.
