A.2 Creating the Silent Install Answer File for Dynamic File Services

  1. Log in as the Administrator user or as a user with Administrator privileges.

  2. Create the InstallShield answer file on the same platform and hardware setup where you plan to use the silent install.

    1. In a Command Prompt console, start the GUI install and use the /r option to record your responses.

      Architecture

      Enter

      32-bit

      DswSetup-x86-v2.1-<build>.exe /r
      

      64-bit

      DswSetup-x64-v2.1-<build>.exe /r
      

      The answer file is saved to the Windows System root folder, such as C:\Windows\setup.iss.

    2. Use the InstallShield GUI to install Dynamic File Services as described in Section 3.1, Installing Dynamic File Services.

      Your responses to the install options in the GUI are captured to the answer file, such as C:\Windows\setup.iss.

    3. Copy setup.iss to the same location as the DynamicFS GUI install executable file.

      You can rename the answer file to a name that indicates the install scenario.

    4. Repeat the process for each additional install scenario you need to create for the current platform and hardware setup.
