Tableau 9.3 Silent install and license Activation



  • Charles Daniel

    What command do you process through PDQ to deploy Tableau Desktop?  I can get tableau to install but not upgrade through PDQ.

    As far as I know, there isn't a way to "Upgrade".  I basically use a powershell script that looks for and uninstalls any previous version.  Then I use my variables to keep track of the current approved version.


    I still have no way of activation

    $OldTableau = Get-ChildItem "C:\ProgramData\Package Cache\{*}\*" | Where-Object {$_.Name -like "tableau*"}
    foreach($item in $OldTableau){
    if((Get-Item $item.FullName).VersionInfo.FileVersion -lt @(TableauVer)){
    $exe = [string]$item.FullName
    write-output "uninstalling $exe"
    $args = @('/uninstall', '/S')
    $proc = Start-Process -FilePath "$exe" -ArgumentList '/uninstall','/S' -Wait -PassThru
    if($proc.ExitCode -ne 0){
    write-output $proc.ExitCode
