How to Install Onetastic Silently

Onetastic installer shows an installation UI that displays the installation progress and presents any errors to the user. If you want to deploy Onetastic to your users' computers remotely via mechanisms like SCCM, you can provide a configuration file from command line which will cause the installer to run silently.

Configuration File

Onetastic Installer Configuration File is an XML file which you can also use to deploy a Pro license. 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 configuration file that also deploys a Pro license looks like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <Config> <License type="client"> <Email></Email> <ProductKey>AAAAA-12345-BBBBB-67890-CCCCC</ProductKey> </License> </Config>

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
