In some cases, you may need to install TestArchitect in silent mode. In this mode, the installation is performed automatically without any user interaction.
For example, you install TestArchitect in silent mode, when you would like to automate the installation process or deploy TestArchitect on various computers. Especially, CI/CD cycle for continuous integration, deployment and delivery fit your needs most.
To install TestArchitect in silent mode by using InstallShield, create an installation response file to store the needed installation settings.
"D:\Silent installation\TestArchitect Build\TestArchitect_188.8.131.52_x64.exe" /r
Deploying TestArchitect installation file on other computers and running the installation there using the created response file.
"D:\Silent installation\TestArchitect Build\TestArchitect_184.108.40.206_x64.exe" /s /f1"D:\Silent installation\Silent files\install.iss" /f2"D:\Silent installation\Silent files\install.log"
In silent mode, the installation wizard shows no informative, warning or error messages. The installation program creates the log file and writes the installation status to that file. You can examine that log file to learn whether TestArchitect has been installed successfully.
The file is located in the folder, specified by the /f2 parameter (learn more). Open the file and check the ResultCode value. 0 indicates success, any other values indicate an error. A complete list of error codes is available here.
