Today I learn, we can install MailEnable with Silent switch. I don’t know, it’s MailEnable feature or InstallShield feature (because Installshield has a silent switch) but It’s quite good for IT developers. You can install mailenable unattendedly with this command:
/s switch is Silent and /B switch is Batch Installation Mode. If you don’t use /B, you will prompt for some corfirmations. So you should you /B. But before installing MailEnable, you have to work on Registry. In that point, reg import command will be useful. If I finished test of unattended install, I’ll write the results.
Update: After testing of unattended install, I saw you have to do a registry trick before installation. New batch file:
I don’t why but after installation, you have to start services manually. So I did net start commands to start all services. Now let’s see our mailenable.reg file:
If you use my reg file, MailEnable’s Webmail will be installed on “Default Web Site”. If you want to change it, you should change WebRoot.
