Installation parameters

Depending on your installation requirements and the purchased licenses, we will provide you with different setup files:

  • We supply * .exe files for the demo version, for the named user installation and for the Enterprise Portal Server.
  • For the concurrent user installation, there is also a * .msi file that allows the use in LAN from a central location

The use of process4.biz on LAN via remote maintenance is possible through an administrator in “silent mode”. For this to happen, open the * .msi file delivered to you with the modifiable * .bat file, where you can put each relevant parameter for your installation. You can enter an alternative parameter directly in the Windows command line.

For the correct and automatic creation of the installation parameters for your individual * .bat file, you can use our Wizard: Silent Mode Installation Settings

In principle the following applies for the selection of components:

  •  0 = do not install
  • 1 = install

All parameters for the extensions listed below (except for “INSTALL_ACTIVE_DIRECTORY”) are installed by default. If you do not want an extension to be installed, you must specify this additionally in the command line with the parameter value “0”. Please note that running the “silent mode” installation is possible only as an administrator.
