Installing NSL through a User interface or a responsefile.ini provided by an administrator can be time consuming and a dependant activity. This article explains how to independently install NSL on a 64 bit machine without facing any UI hassles or without being dependent on administrator.
NSL is now supported on 64 bit machines. In order to install NSL on your 64 bit machine, you have to follow a general procedure of either going through full UI option or installing in silent mode.
To install in full UI mode, you will have to go through the user interfaces and provide all the options relevant to you.
To install in silent mode, you will have to depend on the administrator to provide you with a responsefile.ini which contains all the configurations for installing NSL.
This article walks you through how to install NSL with a single click without going through the User interfaces and without being dependent on the administrator, yet providing a customized install for NSL matching your needs.
- Download a latest version of NSL and save it on your workstation
- Open any text editor. (Notepad,Notepad++ etc)
- Copy paste the text given here in a text file
- Name and save the file as responsefile.ini.
- Now you can modify this file as per your needs. (Details mentioned after the steps)
- Either place this responsefile.ini in the same folder as Novell securelogin.msi and just double click the msi
- Or use the command line as follows from the path where MSI is placed
msiexec /i "Novell SecureLogin.msi" /qn PATHTOISS ="Absolute Path of the custom responsefile.ini"
