Running the ActFax setup unattended with command line parameters


How can I automatically run the ActFax setup unattended with command line parameters?


To automatically run the ActFax Setup unattended it would be possible to start the setup program with command line parameters. A list of all available command line parameters can be displayed with the command actfax_setup_en.exe -help. For example to automatically install the fax client with automatic startup disabled and with the servers IP address automatically set, use the following command:
  • actfax_setup_en.exe -Auto -Client -NoStartup -IP
To automatically install the fax server, use a command like the following:
  • actfax_setup_x64_en.exe -Auto -Server -Company My Company Inc. -Key 00000-00000-00000-00000
To use command line parameters with MSI installation packages, create a text file with the same name as the MSI file and the file extension .ini and write the command line parameters to be used with the setup to the .ini file. The command line parameters are then automatically read from the .ini file when the installation of the MSI package is done. For example, if the file name of your MSI package is actfax_setup_x64_en.msi, the command line parameters need to be written to the file actfax_setup_x64_en.ini.
