UltraEdit 17 Silent Installation

That was kind of hard to find the right command line for UltraEdit 17. As i started to drag the .exe file into my cmd and see with /? if there are command line switches, i saw that you can do a silent install with .exe /S /V/qn at least so it says. But as you might know that is not true.

So how do you do a silent install of UltraEdit 17. It is pretty easy if you know how. You need a configuration file. It is called setup.iss and you have to generate it yourself.

open up an command window (cmd) and start the.exe file as followed

.exe -r -f1C:\Temp\setup.iss

you have to work through the installation manualy like you want it later on. Now just start your silent installation as followed.

.exe -s -f1C:\Temp\setup.iss

if you like to get a logfile you can use the following line.

.exe -s -f1C:\Temp\setup.iss -f2C:\Temp\ue.log

thats pretty much it.

For the Activation you have to use this.

uedit32.exe /lic,e=”<LicenseID>|<Password>”

and for UltraCompare this.

uc.exe -lic “<LicenseID>|<Password>”


as always. If you have qustions just ask.
