Creating the response file using the installer

To create a response file using the installer:
1. At a command prompt, type the following command where response_file is the path and file name of the response file you want to create. Specify an absolute path. If the path is not specified, the specified file is created in the current working directory.
java -jar PROGRESS_DATADIRECT_CLOUD_JDBC_4.0.2_INSTALL.jar -r response_file 
This example for Windows systems creates a response file named installer.properties in the C:\temp directory:
java -jar PROGRESS_DATADIRECT_CLOUD_JDBC_4.0.2_INSTALL.jar -r C:\temp\installer.properties 
This example for UNIX/Linux systems creates a response file named installer.properties in the /install directory:
java -jar PROGRESS_DATADIRECT_CLOUD_JDBC_4.0.2_INSTALL.jar -r ./install/installer.properties 
2. The Introduction window appears. Click Next.
3. In the Where Would You Like to Install? field, type the path, including the drive letter on Windows machines, of the product installation directory or click the Choose (...) button to browse to and select an installation directory.
Click Next to continue.
Note: If you specify a directory that contains a previous installation of the driver, a warning message appears allowing you to overwrite your existing installation or specify a different installation directory.
4. Click Done to exit the installer. The response file is created in the directory you specified in Step 1.
See Performing the silent installation for instructions on running the response file.
