Is there a silent install option for TCC/LE

I would like to distribute TCC /LE in our network.
Are there options available in the installation file, so that I can install the package without user intervention?

Regards,

Arjan

Rex,

I used tcmdle.exe /extract however I always end up in a subdirectory 6FD6305 below the target directory. This is probalbly caused by the packager. But I was hoping that with an extra switch it would end up in the target parent directory.

Not anything I can control.

Look at the options for msiexec; you might be able to find something to do
what you want.

In case it isn't clear, note that "/extract" does *not* install the app, it
just extracts the files from the installer. You'd then have to manually
update a few dozen registry keys and create the shortcuts. The updater
would not work, and you would not be able to uninstall using the Control
Panel.

Ask Microsoft, I'm sure they could give you a reason for that behavior.

But is there some reason you won't use "tcmdle /qn", which actually does an
install (which is what you had asked for), not an extract to a temp
directory?

Your right! I asked the wrong answer. I want to use TCMLE as part of a job in Altiris. Not worrying about icons/uninstall programs makes the jobs even easier. First job: Copy / extract tcmdle to the workstation. Next job run TCMDLE with specific parameters. Altiris makes use of freedos. Not a beefed up Scriptprocessor. Next thing is to see if I can replace the freedos altogether with TCMDLE.
