How do I silently deploy/install FileLocator Pro in an Enterprise environment?

0 votes

We plan on deploying FileLocator Pro via Microsoft Active Directory and Group Policies. Does your installer come as a .MSI file? And if so, is there a way to automatically register the software on all of our client workstations?

Yes, FileLocator Pro is available as an MSI installation file, available from the FileLocator Pro download page. When deploying FileLocator Pro in an Enterprise environment there are two methods to distribute the registration information during the install:

1. Using the REG_DETAILS property

The REG_DETAILS property is an '=' separated list of registration information in the format firstname=lastname=email=regcode, e.g.

msiexec /i "E:\flp_x64_1341.msi" REG_DETAILS="Abc Widgets=Corp=admin@abcwidgets.com=a368de61..."

2. Using a flpro_reg.xml file

If you add a file called flpro_reg.xml in the source folder (ie same folder as MSI) the installer will read that and apply it to the install. The format for the flpro_reg.xml is:

<reg>
    <firstname></firstname>
    <lastname></lastname>
    <email></email>
    <regcode></regcode>
</reg>

And so using the information from your registration email should look something like:

<reg>
    <firstname>Abc Widgets</firstname>
    <lastname>Corp</lastname>
    <email>admin@abcwidgets.com</email>
    <regcode>a368de61...</regcode>
</reg>
