Installation Configuration File

Onetastic Installer Configuration File is an XML file which you can also use for several deployment options:

A simple configuration file looks like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <Config />

Just the presence of a configuration file will switch the installer to silent mode. Configuration files must be in UTF-8 encoding. A full featured configuration file may look like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <Config> <Features> <Macros> <Download disabled="true" /> <Edit disabled="true" /> <Install> <Macro id="091883EFBE344BFCBE73A7E113FE0190" /> <Macro id="D2FDC7FB1940482386EACA5B74B0AFBC" version="6B0879" /> <Macro id="20F029487157446B81830EAA645A2214" /> <Macro id="6A3765E072234EA7B0942A2BE0D14C2B" version="F62144" /> </Install> </Macros> </Features> <License type="client"> <Email>someone@example.com</Email> <ProductKey>AAAAA-12345-BBBBB-67890-CCCCC</ProductKey> </License> </Config>

This configuration file allows installer to run silently and configures all the options mentioned above.

Passing Configuration File from the Command Line

To pass the configuration file to the installer from the command line, use the /config option:

OnetasticInstaller.exe /config c:\path\to\the\config.xml
