SyncToy 2.0 unattended setup RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

     

    I tried to install this tool unattended, but the setup does not provide any usable switch.

     

    Is there a simple solution to install this program?

     

    Best regards, Nils.

    In the installation notes on our download website we have the the relevant notes on how to do it -

    The pertinent note on this is -

    SyncToy supports quiet installation by an Administrator user on the target machine. The steps for this are as follows. Please download the self-extracting archive executable and save locally. Extract files from the archive to a target directory. You'll notice 3 MSI files in the set of extracted files. Each of the 3 MSIs can be run in quiet mode using the MSI command line utility (msiexec.exe). The order in which the MSIs need to be installed is: Synchronization.msi, ProviderServices.msi, SyncToySetup.msi.

  • Hello Wilfried,

     

    just run

      SyncToySetupPackage.exe -x

    from the command line where your .exe is located.
