Windows Command Line Properties and Examples

A command-line installation (or "silent" installation) uses command-line parameters to complete an installation without messages or user interaction.

Command Line Properties

Table 1. Optional Command Line Properties
Property Values

INSTALLDIR

(Optional)

Specifies the installation path. For example:

INSTALLDIR=C:\Program Files\EventMon

Note: If you do not set the installation path, the installer uses the following default path:

C:\Program Files\Adaptec\Adaptec Event Monitor

LOGDIR

(Optional)

Specifies the installation log path. For example:

LOGDIR=C:\Program Files\EventMon\InstallLogs

Note: If you do not set the installation log path, the installer uses the following default path:

C:\PMCS\Logs

ADDLOCAL

(Optional)

Note: Use commas to separate multiple values.
  • ALL—Installs all of the following features. If you specify ALL, do not also specify any of the following values.
  • EventMonitor—Installs the Adaptec Event Monitor.
  • CLITools—Installs the Command Line Interface tool (ARCCONF).

Example Command Line Installations

  • To install the Adaptec Event Monitor, CLI tools (ARCCONF), and installation logs in the default location:

    EventMonitorInstaller_x64.exe

  • To install the Adaptec Event Monitor, CLI tools, and installation logs to a different installation path:

    EventMonitorInstaller_x64.exe INSTALLDIR=C:\Adaptec\EventMon LOGDIR=C:\Adaptec\EventMon\InstallLogs

  • To install the Adaptec Event Monitor and CLI tools to the default location and the installation logs to a different installation path:

    EventMonitorInstaller_x64.exe LOGDIR=”C:\Program Files\Adaptec\Adaptec Event Monitor\InstallLogs”

    Note: Be sure to enclose the installation path in double quotes if the pathname includes spaces (as in the example above). Do not include a trailing \ on the leaf directory, however, for example InstallLogs\”; it will be interpreted as an escape sequence for the outside quote.
  • To install just the CLI tools on a 32-bit Windows system:

    EventMonitorInstaller_x86.exe ADDLOCAL=CliTools
