Cannot get "installdir" switch to work

Post by ACS »

I am trying to run a batch file to install UVK on a sub folder of the system drive. When I do this it ignores the custom "intalldir" switch and installs in the Program Files.

I am positive that folder "assets" and the setup file are in the proper locations as well.
%SYSTEMDRIVE%\assure\assets\UVKSetup.exe -Auto -NoRun -NoRP -NoDShct -NoCMenu -Installdir "%SYSTEMDRIVE%\assure\"
Can someone please tell me if I am doing something wrong here? Any help would be awesome!

Thanks,
Tyler

I looked at your code there and as far as I can tell it looks fine. My only questions would be, could it be because you are trying to install it on basically the same path? My other thought is there my be a bug in it that Fred is not aware of....

It is not "Can it be done?" but rather, "How can we do it?"

Yeah, it is odd. I haven't used UVK for a while and I just got some time to configure it but I got hung up here. I know this has worked with similar code in the past.

I could be wrong; and I can't seem to pin point what it is, but I believe my cloud settings are not being updated as well.

Something to note, I also have made sure to uninstall UVK and delete the registry keys it leaves behind.

Hi ACS.

Please remove the trailing backslash in "%SYSTEMDRIVE%\assure\", and it should work fine as long as the directory you specify already exists. I will make it automatically remove any trailing back slashes in the future.

Note: The application will be installed in "%SYSTEMDRIVE%\assure\UVK - Ultra Virus Killer".
One thing we humans have in common is that we are all different. So, if you think you're weird because you're different from everyone else, then we are all weird.
