In cases where you would like to install Authentic8 Silo in the Program Files directory, you will need to follow the instructions in this document.
1. The user doing the install has administrative privileges on the workstations
2. The install will be made into "C:\Program Files (x86)"
3. All references to auto-update are removed from the product. This means that administrators who distribute this software are responsible for upgrading the software.
4. The installation steps described below are for reference only. They are used to illustrate how the install would occur if you were doing this manually. If you are using an automated distribution mechanism, you will need to modify the instructions as appropriate. Please contact Support if you have any questions.
The Authentic8 Silo software can be downloaded at https://www.authentic8.com/get.
Extract the MSI from the downloaded package
After downloading the package, move to a temporary location. Open a command prompt and navigate to the file location. Enter the following command:
authentic8-win-<build number>-release-prod.exe /c /t:"<extract path>"
Note: The extract path can be the same location as the download location.
Script to Install Package
This is the script that will be needed along with the MSI file to install on the workstations:
msiexec.exe /qb /i "C:\<path>\setup.msi" ALLUSERS=1
Optionally, if you would like to set default registry entries on the workstation for the installation, use the following command instead:
msiexec /qb /i "C:\<path>\setup.msi" ALLUSERS=1 REGISTRY_FILE_NAME="
If you would like to install Silo to a particular folder or directory, then please use the following syntax:
msiexec /i msi_file ALLUSERS=1 TARGET_FOLDER_PATH="target folder path"
Note: The registry file must be in the same directory as the MSI file.
