    Can you just copy pref.ini to your targets, or do you need to specify unique values for each target? Also, does your vendor have any documentation about silent installation?

    Hate to say this but my vendor is no help at all. I have an IP of 10.100.56.4 that I need to install. I can copy pref.ini but I need to determine what the setting should be. Ex. - Server_IP: 10.100.65.3 ???

    You can update pref.ini on the target with PowerShell. Where is "Server_IP" coming from? Is it the IP of the target?

    No. It is the IP of the MessageNet server. I can deploy the exe no issue but when you user clicks app, it opens and request the user input the IP address of the MessageNet server

    In that case, I recommend adding a File Copy step to your package that copies a pre-built pref.ini file to the target.

    Ok. Got that. What should the parameter look like?

    -Server_IP: 10.100.56.4

    The only parameter you should need is the silent switch. It varies between vendors, but a few you can try are:

    • /S
    • -s
    • --silent
    • --quiet
    • /Q
