Patch silent install

Postby nightbird » Mon Jun 01, 2020 12:39 pm

I successfully installed version 11 in silent mode ("EViews11Installer(64-bit).exe" -s /sms -f1.\setup.iss -f2.\setup.log), but I can't install the patch in silent mode as well ("EViews11x64Patch_052720.exe" -s, /S, -silent, -quite, -s -sms...) - only in interactive mode. Is it possible to install the patch in silent mode?

Response:
The same way:

"EViews11x64Patch_052720.exe" -r -f1.\patch.iss

After:

"EViews11x64Patch_052720.exe" -s /sms -f1.\patch.iss -f2.\patchlog.log

I am not clear on your second post, but to answer your question the answer is yes.

You will need to create an iss file using the patch executable (in the same way you stated in the second post).

Code: Select all

"EViews11x64Patch_052720.exe" -r -f1.\patch.iss


I just confirmed you can run the patch silently as well, but used

Code: Select all

"EViews11x64Patch_052720.exe" -s -f1.\patch.iss

Please send me an email to jason@eviews.com. Include any applicable screen shots, the install log, and the *.iss script file. Also in your email, specify which version of EViews are you using (11, 10, etc and 64 or 32 bit).
