    Hi Austin,

    You mentioned when you ran this package locally that you had to click "Next" a few times to answer questions that popped up on different windows.  What silent parameters did you use when creating your deployment package in PDQ Deploy to make it so you didn't have those same windows looking for someone to click "Next"?

    The only parameter I added was /S

    Hi Austin,

    A quick search online found the installation guide from the software vendor.  It looks like the silent installation is managed by an xml file that you create and call from the command line.

    Actually that's the guide to Creo 3.0. Not Creo View Lite 3.0. Doesnt apply to this situation. I was unable to find the install guide for Creo View Lite 3.0.

    After a lot of hardship, and dealing with PTC support, they were able to send me a single .exe file. 

    I pointed Deploy to the file, added a /S parameter and it installed perfectly. 

    Why must everything be so difficult. :-D

     

    Thanks.
