Does anyone know how to create an unattended install of the activinspire activ board driver?
I use this in a batch file.
Code:Echo. TITLE Installing Driver... echo. R:\Inspire\Driver\Activdriver.msi /quiet /passive /norestart echo.
I've tried this.
I downloaded Activdriver_x32_v126.96.36.199_setup.exe today.
ran the program and copied the files from
to a network share
and double clicked the msi (as a user with local admin rights) at which point I get the messageCode:Directory of X:\ActivBoardDrivers\Extract 22/09/2009 12:20 <DIR> . 22/09/2009 12:20 <DIR> .. 22/09/2009 12:16 12,014 0x0401.ini 22/09/2009 12:16 6,692 0x0404.ini 22/09/2009 12:16 14,582 0x0406.ini 22/09/2009 12:16 15,904 0x0407.ini 22/09/2009 12:16 13,660 0x0409.ini 22/09/2009 12:16 15,750 0x040a.ini 22/09/2009 12:16 14,184 0x040b.ini 22/09/2009 12:16 16,132 0x040c.ini 22/09/2009 12:16 11,696 0x040d.ini 22/09/2009 12:16 15,492 0x0410.ini 22/09/2009 12:16 8,848 0x0412.ini 22/09/2009 12:16 15,292 0x0413.ini 22/09/2009 12:16 14,296 0x0414.ini 22/09/2009 12:16 14,640 0x0416.ini 22/09/2009 12:16 14,542 0x0419.ini 22/09/2009 12:16 13,840 0x041d.ini 22/09/2009 12:16 14,220 0x041f.ini 22/09/2009 12:16 6,776 0x0804.ini 22/09/2009 12:16 13,660 0x0809.ini 22/09/2009 12:16 15,276 0x0816.ini 22/09/2009 12:16 3,584 2057.MST 22/09/2009 12:16 12,233,216 Activdriver.msi 22/09/2009 12:16 2,961 Setup.INI 22/09/2009 12:16 4,768 _ISMSIDEL.INI 24 File(s) 12,512,025 bytes 2 Dir(s) 171,361,792,000 bytes free
The installation package could not be opened. Verify it exists.
So I mapped a drive to see if it needs a drive letter mapping but got the same.
I've got about 80 to do so want to avoid doing it manually if at all possible.
Running Activdriver_x32_v188.8.131.52_setup.exe /?
Gives a list of options one of which /S says its silent, but guess what. On my XP pro machine its not!

Download active inspire from here. Run the install and it will allow you to create a network install. You can choose which bits you want. Pick the driver only and put it into the share that you want. Now deploy with group policy
You can seperate the installs by first running the install. Once you get the first dialogue box up, you can navigate to the temp directory of your docs and settings and extract the bits you want.
When I last installed ActivDriver 4.x it puts a registry entry within:
By deleting the entry it installs here, it'll stop the ActivDriver periodically informing users to clean their projector!
Sadly they have changed the warning in the v5 driver so that nofilt no longer works. I have no idea what Promethean think teachers are going to do with the information presented in the warning! Presumably stand on a chair on casters on top of a desk and try to clean the projector with some Mr Sheen?
I know tell me about it. That small registry tweak did get me some bonus points!Presumably stand on a chair on casters on top of a desk and try to clean the projector with some Mr Sheen?
In ActivDriver v184.108.40.206 you have the option to turn off the projector warning through ActivManager - select the ActivManager icon on the system tray and choose "Control Panel" next select the Projector tab and you will see the filter tick box.
