Unattended remote installation. Is it possible to install the professional CYPE program version on several computers from a network server without having to answer the questions asked by the installation from each post?

Yes. To do this, simply use the unattended installation for CYPE programs.

With the unattended installation of CYPE programs, it is possible to install the complete package or any of the programs individually, with the same conditions and responsibilities as the attended installation, whereby users accept they have read, understood and accepted all the terms of the license contract.

The command and parameters that are used to execute the unattended installation of CYPE programs are as follows:

“name.exe”blank spacedrive:blank space/no_asistidablank space/no_visibleblank space/tipo_version:

blank space represents a space.

  • "name.exe"

    It is the name of the file that executes the installation to be performed. It must be typed in quotation marks because the installation of CYPE program executables includes spaces. The executable file extension (.exe) must also be included.

    Users can install the complete package using the "Install CYPE xxx.exe" file (where xxx represents the version and in the language in which it is going to be installed), or individual programs ("Install individual programs" folder), connections with CAD programs ("Install connections with CAD programs" folder) and other CYPE program tools (the database server of Arquimedes, the license key server...).

    The location of the files and folders mentioned above is “C:\CYPE Ingenieros\Download version xxxx.x\CYPE\x64” by default (where xxxx.x represents the version and “x64” is “x86” if users have chosen to download the 32-bit version instead of the 64-bit version).

    Users can modify this location in a dialogue box that appears during the installation process once the “.exe” file, which can be downloaded from the CYPE program Download area, has been executed.

    ATTENTION: It is very important that the "Install automatically after downloading" option is deactivated if the "unattended installation" is to be performed. Otherwise, the "attended installation" will be executed, which will oblige users to answer, from each post, all the questions that are asked during the installation process.

    In versions prior to the 2021.b version, two methods were available to download CYPE programs. One was using the Download Manager (only option available as of the 2021.b version) and the other was by downloading the programs directly. This second possibility consisted in downloading a compressed file, users would choose where to decompress it, and this would define the location of the abovementioned folders and files.

  • drive:
    This is the letter of the hard drive of the computer (including the character :), where the program is to be installed.

  • /no_asistida
    Mandatory parameter that prevents the computer from asking the questions during the installation.

  • /no_visible
    Optional parameter that prevents the installation process from being displayed on the computer.

  • /tipo_version:
    Optional parameter that indicates the type of version that is going to be installed. The admissible values are:

    • /tipo_version:profesional
    • /tipo_version:evaluacion
    • /tipo_version:campus
    • /tipo_version:temporal

    If “/tipo_version” is omitted, the default value that is taken is “/tipo_version:profesional”.

Notes of interest:

  • To perform an installation on a computer on the network, it may be convenient to inform the corresponding users (using the system used by the network administrator for the remote installation) that a process is going to be carried out during which, the computer should not be switched off or disconnected from the network.
  • If the safety devices that are being used for CYPE programs are single-port USB connection keys, it is recommended that computer users remove them from the USB port to which they are connected and replace them only once the installation process has finished.
