Intel Parallel Advisor Silent Installation Guide

Silent installation allows users to install, repair or remove the product without requiring user input during the execution of the install. Options given on the command line allow the user to activate the product with a license file or serial number and customize the installation location.

To install Intel® Parallel Advisor 2011 in silent mode, invoke the setup using the following command:

 

Advisor_2011_setup.exe -s -a install --eula=accept [{--license=<path-to-license-file> | --sn=<serial number>}] --output=<report-file>

 

With this command, the Advisor_2011_setup.exe self extracting archive silently uncompresses to %ProgramFiles%\Intel\Download\Advisor_2011_setup (the default extraction location) and executes setup.exe, passing all arguments following option -a. In turn, the application setup.exe installs the product into a default directory using the specified license file or serial number for activation. If no license file or serial number is specified the existing licenses are used. The use of --eula=accept means you accept all terms and conditions of the End User License Agreement. Silent installation will not continue without this option. If you have a serial number, choose the --sn option. If you have a license file, choose the --license option. If you omit both of these options the install will look for an existing license. The --output option puts information reported during the install into the name of the file specified.
