Install the software from the command line

You can run the installation wizard from the command line, which lets you select additional options, such as silent installation. By default, installation is interactive.

Before you begin

Make sure that your system meets all requirements.

  • For silent installation, the wizard displays no feedback. All information is available in logs.
  • For interactive command-line installation, the wizard displays a progress window and allows you to cancel the installation, if needed. All information is available in logs.
