Running the Silent installation
The command you use to initiate, or play back, the response file is the same regardless of which data input option you choose. The OpenEdge Silent utility runs without intervention after you enter the command to start the process.
The syntax for running the OpenEdge Installation utility in silent mode is:


<path-to-install-media>\setup.exe -psc_s [-notify]
Note: Do not leave a space between command line entries and options. Also, neither command line entries nor options are case sensitive.
Runs an OpenEdge installation. The <path-to-install-media> indicates that you can run the installation from the installation executable downloaded with your product from the Progress Download Center, The setup.exe identifies the specific OpenEdge installation executable.
Indicates a Silent installation.
Indicates that the installation dialog boxes that display will contain details about the current installation phase and percent complete. This element is supported for backward compatibility only.
The preferred method is to set up your application installation program to poll the log file for status of the installation process. You can programmatically set up a query, checking the Runtime Status and Result Code values in the log file. See Checking the status of the Silent installation log file to review the contents of a sample oesetup.log file that contains Runtime Status and Result Code details. -psc_f1=<path><response-file-name>
Specifies the pathname and filename of the file. By default, the install will look for the response file oesetup.ini in the same directory as setup.exe is located.
Indicates that an installation log file will be created, and specifies the pathname and filename of the installation log file. If no filename is specified, the OpenEdge Installation Utility provides the default log filename oesetup.log.
If you do not specify a value for <path>, the Installation Utility writes this file to the Windows directory.


The following example shows a typical Silent installation command:
-psc_s -psc_f1=C:\SilentInstalls\oesetup.ini -psc_f2=C:\SilentInstalls\oesetup.log
