Silent installation on Windows

Administrators can configure silent installation of IBM® Client Application Access (ICAA).


  • Open a command prompt, and change the directory where setup.exe/installer is copied. Then enter the following command: setup.exe -s -a /s /v"SETMULTIUSER=1 PROGDIR=\\"%s\\" /qn".
    Note: The -s, -a, and /s parameters are required for silent installations. -s silences the Package For the Web wrapper UI; -a passes all following command line options to the embedded package, and /s silences the embedded package's extraction UI. The /v passes the rest of the quoted string to the msiexec engine.
  • Install IBM Client Application Access to the default location: setup.exe -s -a /s /v"/qn". You can change the default to your preferred program directory with the command: setup -s -a /s /v"PROGDIR=[non-default path] /qn".
    Note: You can't change the default ICAA data directory.
  • To install IBM Client Application Access without the multi-user cleanup service, enter the command: - setup.exe -s -a /s /v"DISABLEMULTIUSERCLEANUP=1 /qn"
  • To install IBM Client Application Access with the AutoUpdate feature disabled, enter the command: - setup.exe -s -a /s /v"DISABLEAUTOUPDATE=1 /qn"
  • To upgrade from IBM Notes® Browser Plug-in 9.0 or 9.0.x to ICAA, enter the command setup.exe -s -a /s /v"/qn"
