KB0000063 Setting Installed Client Options

The PIAB client installer (e.g. 'piabpe-client-x.x.x.001.exe') can be deployed with command line settings and/or an INI file to set some useful options.

Command Line Settings

Setting Description Example
/S Run the client installer silently
/D Set the install folder. /D=c:\temp\PIAB

For example:

piabpe-client-3.3.1.005.exe /S /D=c:\temp\test1

INI File Settings

The client installer looks for file called 'setup.ini'. Using this, the initial server URL can be specified on install…

[options]
serverurl=http://mypiabserver/piabws/piabws.asmx
ignore_planner_setup=1

It is also possible to disable the planner install/upgrade by specifying.

[options]
ignore_planner_setup=1

Custom Client Config File

A local customised client config file 'piabpe.cfg' can also be specified. The file must be in the same folder as the .exe program.

[options]
configfile=piabpe.cfg

Language (locale) Files

If a 'locale' folder, containing language files, is supplied in the same folder as .exe program then this will be added to the install. The structure of this folder is the same as when the language pack is applied e.g.

locale
  nl-be
    piabpe.txt
  fr-be
    piabpe.txt
