Installing PowerShell Studio silently

Post by DIT-Acquisition »

Hi,

I am trying to install Powsershell 2022 (SPS22Setup_5.8.213_111422_x64) on Windows 10 silently and without ScriptMerge and update.
So I run SPS22Setup_5.8.213_111422_x64 /exenoui /nopreqs /qn

But these subproducts are still installing. Is it possible to skip them?

Thanks,

There is no command line option to do that which I am aware off. Besides, that would not only skip these two items, it would skip all.
These two applications are an integral part of PowerShell Studio, what's wrong with them?

Not an issue as we are deploying others requirements outside the main deployment. But the update part should not be there are we are managing updates by updating the package and our users are not local admin.

Well, if this is only for, say two users, we are not going to make a specific installer just for you. :D
If you give me an indication of how many users this affects I can see what can be done.

Hi,

I am not repackaging and your installer is supporting commandline parameters by default.
What is suppose to be the /exenoupdates and /noprereqs parameters exactly?

Thanks

Our installers are build with Advanced Installer. The command line switches can be found here:
https://www.advancedinstaller.com/user- ... -file.html

/execnoupdates skips update checks, if any are defined. We do not have any of those.
/noprereqs skips some rerequisites, but not all. There are three types or pre-requisites:
1. Pre-install
2. Feature based
3. Post install

AFAIK, the switch only skips feature based prerequisites. Our prerequisites are defined as pre-install.
