Support Silent Switch Installations for DVM Studio, JDBC Drivers and ODBC Drivers
At our site users do not have the option to download and install software on their work computers unless that software has been approved and made available from an internal central software download site. Users do not have administrative rights and as such they are not able to direct where software is installed and users do not have the option to respond to prompts from installation scripts.
Instead of responding to prompts and making choices such as Global or Local installation or the directory for the installation, the Administrator needs to setup a Silent Switch command that includes all parameters such that a user clicks INSTALL to execute a single command and the installation of DVM Studio completes with no further prompts or interaction with the install script. Similarly a single command with any required parameters is needed for the installation of the JDBC and ODBC drivers.
For example, for installing the ODBC Driver, instead of executing DVM_ODBC-3.2.266-win64.exe we need something like: DVM_ODBC-3.2.266-win64.exe parm1 parm2 parm3
And for Studio, instead of executing setup.bat and getting prompted for further information, we need something like setup.bat parm1 parm2 parm3
For the safety, security and soundness of our computer hardware, software and networks, can DVM provide Silent Switch commands for the installation of DVM Studio, JDBC Drivers and ODBC Drivers?
