Silent/unattended install command line switches?

Good day. I already know /S switch works, but after silent install it launches the program. Which simply won't do. Any switch to disable the auto-launch? And maybe a switch to choose default installation folder as well? What ARE command line switches for this program anyway? And I'm not talking only about installation ones. Thank you.

P.S. Can't believe something so relevant isn't documented anywhere. Not that I have seen.

Oh, pardon me, I got caught up in work and confused - yes, indeed, Uninstall Tool does not seem to support the /S switch, i mistook it for another program. So does Uninstall Tool have any command-line switches for silent installation? Or this feature is not currently supported?

You would like if Install Tracker could suppress running of the app after installation? This is totally up to setup program. The only thing you can do is use /S switch (or whatever) as a command line parameter for you app when installing new program after pressing this button:

Obviously that is up to program's installer. This is not what I'm asking.

What are Uninstall Tool's installer command line parameters? You know, uninstalltool_setup.exe.

Since you missed the point of my question twice, I am assuming your installer does support any kind of command line parameters and silent installation?

Is there any way to install Uninstall Tool silently and have it automatically choose to install the Trace service? I found that i can in fact silently install it using the following switches however the trace service doesn't get installed:

/VERYSILENT /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES /NORESTART /SP-

I think you have to pass /TASKS parameter

Available tasks: desktopicon, quicklaunchicon, control_panel_icon, install_service

install_service is what you need probably.

Can you please give me an example of the syntax if i wanted to use BOTH control_panel_icon and install_service?

BTW, i am having a very hard time getting the install_service switch to work . I have built several "silent" installs of uninstall tool now and none work including ones that have your EXACT command line switches. Everytime i try to start the "install and trace" service i get the following error: Image

Hello. I write with a translator.
Prompt key silent installation of this program to the end of the installation program does not start.

uninstalltool_setup.exe /VERYSILENT /(What insert here so that the program does not start after installation?)
