    What command line switches are available for the windows agent setup.exe?  I am trying to run a silent install remotely but it doesn't work.  When I run a silent install locally, it works fine.  Has anyone been able to remotely run a silent install of the windows agent setup.exe?

    do you indeed need a silent setup?

    my preferred solution is copying the files after creating a bin and temp directory manually..
    if doing so you can skip the setup.* and the bootstrp3.cab file.

    doing this the agent installation procedure can be easily automated.

    Thanks.  I did previously try that (just copying the files) and not running setup.exe, and it works.  My only concern with doing it that way, is that it doesn't show up in the installed programs or registry.  That being said, maybe it doesn't need to.  We have tried everything to get it to run in silent mode remotely to no avail.

    For the Agent itself there is no Registry Entry or registered Program file necessary.

    It helps keeping the server clean in case of updating (Service Packs) the WIN Agents.

    In addition to that its much easier in case of an update - you check the INi file (if necessary) and copy - paste the binaries. Done.

    Or for an automated Agent deployment - you change the ini file, create the directory structure, copy the binaries to the bin dirrecroty and start the agent. Done.

    :-)

    Thanks.  Do you recommend the same for service manager?  That one does show up in our installed programs.

    this is valid for all AWA (Or Automation Engine) Components.
    ..except DB - as 3dr party Application :-)

    - yes would recommend it for SMGR as well!

    usually SMGR runs as service and all other components (except UI) will be started via SMGR.
    So no need for any Program group, Registry thing etc...
