Hello, I have some problems doing a silent installation of ArchiCAD components. ArchiCAD itself is no problem, the problems are these:
1) AC14-4044-HOTFIX5-WIN64.exe does NOT seem to work silently. It pops up a question 'Select a language to be used for this wizard'. Ie not working. Library Hotfix #1 seems to work as it's supposed to. Maybe this is because we are using the SWE version? If so, how do we get it to work?
2) How can you perform a silent install of all the extra components? GDL Web Controls, Const Sim, Mesh to Roof, 3DStudio IN etc. Well everything that ArchiCAD seems to be using (Java Installshield?) is done in the same way. If you extract the installers you get a couple of files from all installations, for example:
For extras and such, I usually install on one computer and then put all the installed add-ons to a central location. I then use a batch script to copy them to each users computer. faster than the installers too.
I copy the whole addon Folder and the whole documentation folder. There are a few others I need to copy since I am using a Cadimage addon. They no longer show up as being installed using add/remove programs, so when you remove ArchiCAD there will be some folders in the directory that will need to be manually deleted.
