    Silent installation of wireless drivers and PROSet version 15.0.0.75 on Windows XP

    Tracy

      Does anyone know where the admin guide for silent installation is for v15.0.0.75?

       

      For v13.0 we used the following to install the components we did and did not want


      Setup.exe /qn ADDLOCAL=WIFI_UI,WIFI_Troubleshooter,WIFI_Help,WIFI_SSO,WIFI_PLC WIRELESSRADIOBUTTON=FALSE MSZCFG=FALSE REBOOT=ReallySuppress

       

      We need to exclude WiFi protected setup and include the others like above.

       

      I have searched and searched and cannot find if there are any new instructions sets for v15.

       

      Thanks,

      Tracy

          Hello Tracy,

           

          Thanks for the post. I'll go ahead and perform research on this topic if you don't mind, then I'll try to get in touch as soon as possible. Is that OK with you?

           

          Cheers!

              Hello Tracy,

               

              Thanks for waiting, I was able to find some info that may be useful on command line execution for Ver 15.x

               

              To install components on Ver 15.x, appending the ADDLOCAL on the command line or using the <AddlocalMSI> tag in the setup.xml is necessary, ie, Setup.exe ADDLOCAL=WIFI_Driver

               

              Installing the driver by using the command line

              <AddlocalMSI>WIFI_Software,WIFI_UI</AddlocalMSI>

               

              Installing Wi-Fi software and UI using setup.xml:

              <AddlocalMSI>WIFI_Software,WIFI_UI</AddlocalMSI>

               

              Here's parent/child feature relationships and by default

              • WIFI_Driver - Intel® WiFi Link Driver
              • WIFI_Software - Intel® PROSet/Wireless WiFi Software
              • WIFI_UI - Intel® PROSet/Wireless WiFi Connection Utility
              • WIFI_Simple_Config - Wi-Fi Protected Setup
              • WIFI_SSO - Single Sign On
              • WIFI_PLC - Pre-Logon Connect
              • WIFI_Troubleshooter - Intel® Wireless Troubleshooter
              • WIFI_Admin_Toolkit - Administrator Toolkit

               

              Arguments interpreted by Setup.exe

              ( /qn, /qb, /qf)

              Since Setup.exe is only doing a few actions, it only interprets the UI level commands.

               

              Arguments passed on by Setup.exe to Microsoft Windows Installer

              (/x, REBOOT, /qn, /qb, /qf, /L*v, WIRELESSRADIOBUTTON, etc.).

              Setup will pass most of the other command lines it receives directly to the Windows Installer

               

              Arguments interpreted by Microsoft Windows Installer (msiexec.exe)

              (/i, /x, as well as the items listed in the above bullets).

               

              Arguments that have a custom meaning in the product MSI

              (i.e. WIRELESSRADIOBUTTON

               

              For example, to silently install the default features, run:

              MSIEXEC /i “<Path to MSI>\Intel PROSet Wireless.msi” /qn

               

              Option/Parameter Meaning

              • /qn - Silent installation -no dialogs are displayed.
              • /qb - Basic UI -dialogs are limited to simple progress meters and error prompts
              • /qf - Full UI -dialogs, error prompts. This is the default.
              • /x - Uninstall all features.
              • /L *v <log file> - Enables verbose logging to a file.

               

              Hope this helps,

              Cheers!

                This is answer enough - it would be nice to have a link to Intel complete administrative installation for PROSet v15.x.  One that detailed out for instance the difference between "WIFI_Software" and "WIFI_UI".  Also, if created SETUP.XML which switches go in which area, NativeMSI, AddlocalMSI, CustomMSI, etc.

                 

                Other useful information would be what are the MSI properties WIRELESSRADIOBUTTON and MSZCFG for?  There are other MSI properties in the Windows Installer file that appear to be Intel configurable, but I cannot seem to find a guide with useful information.

                 

                Thanks!

                  Hi Tracy,

                   

                  I will make sure your comment reaches the proper department for future consideration as this would be all the information available at the time for PROSet v15.x.

                   

                  We at Intel appreciate your feedback in this matter. Hope my responses helps you as much as possible.

                   

                  Cheers!

                    Hi -

                     

                    Im trying to install a silent install with the Proset 15.X and the WIFI Connection Utility doest install completly. It seems that the "Intel Proset/Wireless Enterprise Software" doesnt get install and this is what i believe what it installs the "WiFI Connection Utility. Can anyone help silently install the WIFI COnnection Utility, i need this to be installed. This is what my command line looks like. I believe that the WIFI_UI should install this, but its not.

                     

                    MSIEXEC /i "c:\install\Intel PROSet Wireless.msi" /qn ADDLOCAL=WIFI_Driver,WIFI_Software,WiFI_UI

                     

                    Please help.
