Identifying Vendor Command Line Arguments

AdminStudio 2020 R2 SP1 | 20.01 | Application Manager

Edition:Application Manager is included with AdminStudio Professional and Enterprise Editions.

AdminStudio provides command line arguments for silent installation and uninstallation while importing any exe package into the Application Catalog. You can also modify the suggested command line arguments.

While importing, the default command line arguments are fetched for the supported exe packages. The Install Command Line and Uninstall Command Line switches are updated in the Deployment Data > Programs tab. When a package is updated from a previous version of AdminStudio, there is a menu option, “Command line update” to update the command line arguments.

You will be notified whether the default command line arguments are fetched or not through the import logs.

Some of the exe package types require the uninstaller for uninstallation. There are different types that require uninstallers. They are given below:

1. InstallAnywhere
2. WiseScript
3. NullSoft
4. InnoSetup

There are supported Exe Types and Default Arguments available that are listed below:

Note:If due to the nature of a software package, suggestions from AdminStudio are unavailable; it provides a customized Search String to ease the search of the correct command line arguments online.
