When deploying PixEdit® Desktop or PixView® for many users, using the standard installation .exe is not very convenient. Having to step through the whole user interface for every user is simply not practical. For such deployment scenarios, we provide a special installation package. You can find these installation packages on a separate page under your "Licenses and Downloads" page on pixedit.com which is named Advanced Installation.

On this page you will find .zip packages that are named "...SilentSetup.zip". Download the zip package for your product to your local machine and unzip it. In the package there are 4 files:

  • media1.cab
  • Package.msi
  • Install.bat
  • Uninstall.bat

Media1.cab and Package.msi are the actual installation files, which are used by msiexec, the Microsoft Installer. The two .bat files contains the suggested msiexec commands that you will run to install or uninstall the software. Open up the Install.bat file in a text editor, and please read the instructions carefully. At the bottom, you will see the following command line:

msiexec /i Package.msi /qn PRODUCTKEY="XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX" SERIALNUMBER="XXX-XXXXX-XX"

"/i" means "install" and "/qn" means "run quietly", i.e. without any user interface. What you need to do, to actually install the software, is to replace the values of PRODUCTKEY and SERIALNUMBER with your license product key and serial number. And a final reminder: if you run this command from a command window in Windows, please make sure that the command window is Run as Administrator.
