CUPC 7.0 silent install

Answered Question
Jun 21st, 2010


   Hopefully really simple question.  We have finished out beta of CUPC and are ready to begin a limited rollout.  Is there a way to set the cupc .msi package for a silent install.  I have looked around and can't find any procedure for this documented.



I have this problem too.

You can't. This information exists in an XML file on the local disk. You will need an MST or a logon script that pre-seeds the default XML file which will be copied when the user launches CUPC. We have covered this before here:

It's a standard MSI so the normal msiexec options should apply. Have you tried using the msiexec /quiet parameter?  Whatever your normal package deployment method is should work for CUPC.

Thanks, I had hoped that was the case, but what I was more asking (and not asking really well)

was where in the installer can I give it the name of the presence server

and any other options.

es me a good starting point.
