From our evo version 7.1 a "silent" installation is now possible, because we are no longer using a combined setup.

Please read the following article of our DIALux evo knowledge base regarding this issue:

Our DIALux evo software can now installed and uninstalled "silent". If an older version of evo is already installed, this version would be automatically uninstalled before the new version of evo is installed.

The DIAL Data Dispatcher (DDD) can also be uninstalled from Version 8.0 on with the following line:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\DIAL GmbH\Data Dispatcher\uninstall.exe" "/U:C:\Program Files (x86)\DIAL GmbH\Data Dispatcher\Uninstall\uninstall.xml" /s

The setting %DontEnforceRequirements%=1 in the configuration file also prevents the setup from aborting if no OpenGL driver is available.

With the setting %LogFolder% it is possible to set in which directory the logfile is stored, e.g. %LogFolder%="C:\Logfiles". 

Important: No backslash at the end and the directory must exist.


Start Windows command prompt as admin!

Installation: <Setup.exe> / s: <configfile> (Example: evo7.1setup.exe /s:c:\silentsetup.ini)

Here is a sample file: Silentsetup.ini

Parameters in the configuration file: Installation path, name of the start menu folder, option if the setup is run without restart (0 => restart during the setup, 1 => no restart)

We recommend that you run the setup without restarting during the setup and, if necessary, to restart the system after the setup. Restart during setup can be problematic.
