iceman Posted March 10, 2007 Report Share Posted March 10, 2007 Can Environmental Variables (e.g. %HOMEDRIVE%) be used for a Silent Install to a %HOMEDRIVE% drive other than C:? The following scenario actually worked when %HOMEDRIVE% was C:. When %HOMEDRIVE% = H: on a network, no files were installed or written to the INSTALLPATH (e.g. INSTALL.LOG). I was able to run the regular install process successfully to the exact same folder when destination H:\\ICEadmin\ViaMacro was entered. The files that make up the silent install are attached. "text file to automatically respond to the install questions during the installation process" SlashM.txt: INSTALLPATH=%HOMEDRIVE%\ICEadmin\ViaMacroSTARTMENUFOLDR=Delete STARTUP=N LAUNCHNOW=N NOQUICKSTART=Y REBOOT=N LICENSENAME=<my license name> LICENSECODE=xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx CONFIGFILEPATH=.\SlashM.mcf NOEDITOR=Y NOHELP=Y NOICONS=Y MACROFILEDEST=%HOMEDRIVE%\ICEadmin\ViaMacro I noticed in during my testing that [My Documents] was in an exported mcf file. May the brackets be used in place of the percent signs? Thank you in advance. iceman Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
