Printer Driver Deinstallation

What was the Problem? I wanted to update the HP UPD 5.1 PCL 6 Driver to the HP UPD 5.4 PCL 6 Drivers. As i already new for the silent install i used the install.exe /q /npf /h /dm (automatic mode, do not open the printer folder after installation, no dialog is shown, Dynamic Mode) if you need mor commandswitches you can just pull the install.exe in a cmd window and use /? for more help.

So i tried the installation and after about an hour i aborted the installation. What was wrong?
As i said the UPD 5.1 was already installed and the setup routine was not able to update the Driver and or the Software. So i wanted to delete the Printer and the Driver. I went to the Printer folder, clicked on File, then on Server properties and there i clicked on Drivers and wanted to delete the Driver… i got an error that the printer was already in use. After some use of google i found out that i should restart the Printer spool (net stop spool ; net start spool) so i tried it, but without any success. Continue reading Printer Driver Deinstallation

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.
