Best regards

Dear Torsten,

Yes, there is. I use INNO Setup - the command line options for the installer can be found on" rel="nofollow - .

FormsAPIMaster40b351.exe  /VERYSILENT /DIR="C:\Oracle\FormsAPIMaster"

This will install the tool silently. Once installed you need to also register the license key. The easiest is to just generate that license key on your computer and then copy it to all your silent installed targets:

- on your computer select “License everyone” on the licensing screen. If you chose “license current computer user” then it will create the file in your users profile application folder. If you chose “license everyone” it will create the file locally where FormsAPI Master has been installed.
- Make sure you have admin rights (writing in the c:\program files\ folder requires that)
- The file will be named LicenseFAV4.dat for FormsAPI Master V4.0.

Now copy that license file to your target installations and they will be registered!

Just tested it, you are right - the /noicons won't work. I think your workaround script is an ok solution. The other solution would be to use the installer with the /saveinf=c:\install.txt option to create a setup config file like this:

Dir=C:\Oracle\FormsAPI Master V4.0
Group=ORCL Toolbox\FormsAPI Master V4.0

... and once you have that file you can run the installer with /loadinf=c:\install.txt /verysilent to install it.
