    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_v5.1.2.7_setup.exe today.
    ran the program and copied the files from

    C:\Users\<USERNAME>\AppData\Local\Temp\{740A5A30-48DA-460D-BE55-6412D0F28A2B}\

    to a network share

    Code:
    Directory of X:\ActivBoardDrivers\Extract
    
    22/09/2009  12:20    <DIR>          .

                   2 Dir(s)  171,361,792,000 bytes free
    and double clicked the msi (as a user with local admin rights) at which point I get the message

    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_v5.1.2.7_setup.exe /?
    Gives a list of options one of which /S says its silent, but guess what. On my XP pro machine its not!

    Help! (please)

    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:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Run

    By deleting the entry it installs here, it'll stop the ActivDriver periodically informing users to clean their projector!

    There is also a program called nofilt.exe from Promethean which does the same thing.

    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!

    If anyone is still trying to do this manually for any reason, the silent switch is actually "/s /v/qn" (note the single space as I think the spacing might matter). Full commandline is therefore:

    Activdriver_x32_v5.1.2.7_setup.exe /s /v/qn

    In ActivDriver v5.1.2.7 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.
