How do I install Insight silently or via SCCM?

The default installation for DUG Insight is an Attended Installation (see Installing Insight on Windows).

To perform a silent installation, the installation package needs to run from the command window using the "msiexec /i" command.

If you are using a System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) to perform the installation, simply run the command lines described below in your SCCM to deploy Insight.

Silent installation per user

Silent installation per user
  1. From the Start menu, type "cmd" and open the Windows Command Processor.
  2. In the command window, navigate to the folder where the installation file (.msi) resides.
  3. To perform a silent installation, type the following:
msiexec /i DUG_Insight-3.1-408150_x64.msi /qn

Note: Change the version number as necessary.

  1. Press Enter. Insight will then be installed silently for the current user only.

Tip: The installer will install Insight in a default system location for user based installations (i.e. C:\Users\[Username]\AppData\Local\DownUnder Geosolutions). The location may vary depending on the operating system the machine is running (see Home directory).

Silent installation for ALL users

Silent installation for ALL users

To perform a silent installation for ALL users, administrative privileges are required. Make sure you are logged in to an Admin account or from an admin console.

  2. Right click cmd and select Run as administrator to open the Windows Command Processor as Administrator.
  3. In the command window, navigate to the folder where the installation file (.msi) resides.
  4. To perform a silent installation for all users, type the following (change the version number and installation folder as required):
msiexec /i "DUG_Insight-3.1-408150_x64.msi" APPLICATIONFOLDER="C:\Program Files\DownUnder GeoSolutions\DUG Insight 3.1-408150" ALLUSERS="1" /qn
  1. Press Enter. Insight will then be installed silently for ALL users at the folder specified above.

Silent install Insight with Petrel Link

To include the Petrel Link in the installation, add FEAT_PETRELLINK="1" to the command:

msiexec /i "DUG_Insight-3.1-408150_x64.msi" APPLICATIONFOLDER="C:\Program Files\DownUnder GeoSolutions\DUG Insight 3.1-408150" ALLUSERS="1" FEAT_PETRELLINK="1" /qn

Note: This will not fix the problem for an already installed version. Uninstall the current Insight version before executing the command.
