Creating data input option
You can choose to record a separate response file any time you perform an interactive installation. All your installation choices are automatically recorded in a user-defined response file. If you do not specify a filename, the install creates the file $TEMP/install.ini.
The format and structure of any data input option is identical to that which is presented in the automatically-generated response.ini file. See Response.ini sample excerpt to review an excerpt of the file's content.
Use the following syntax to initiate a response file:
proinst -r [<path-to-file>\response-file]
proinst
The command to initiate an OpenEdge installation.
-r <path-to-file>\<response-file>
Indicates that the installation is in record mode, and specifies a pathname to and filename for the data input file to be created. If you do not provide a filename, the installation creates the filename, install.ini and places it in the $TEMP directory.
