UltraVnc MSI Installer parameters

Post by MyUserName »

Hello everyone,

currently we are trying to upgrade/deploy UltraVnc to our machines (~500/600).
The problem is that I can not find any documentation / online posts regarding the MSI installer parameters.
It seems that only the EXE version has been documented.

I tried to use the EXE params to test if they would work, but no success.

Can anyone help me please?

Thank you

The msi is created using this visual studio extention.

https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/it ... s#overview

I didn't found info in the manual about the msi command line options, but expect this to be general options used by all msi.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/window ... ne-options

msiexec /log logfile.txt /i UltraVnc_1381_x86.msi

In the log file you find all property you can customize

Hello everyone,
I think that the problem that we are facing is that MSI installer doesn't take ANY kind of parameter while installing, as I've tested several msi files
(X64 only ..)

If we have some very simple default options like
- do not install shortcuts on desktop upon installation (eventhough for my it is not a big deal to delete them later on ...)
- setup a password upon connection
(havent found an option in msi to set a pass, and after deployment I got on my machines the windows pop up with vnc settings ... !)
- setup other winvnc options like "Remove Wallpaper while connected", "Keep existing connections" etc ,

the strange thing is that all those options can be easily tweaked in we are using the .exe setup with output options file ...

If anyone has any other solution, glad to hear
Many thanks
