    Silently Installing Google Sketchup 7

    Hi guys

    I am trying to get google sketchup to install silently onto our machines. I am currently testing it on my machine.

    I can get it to install easy enough through a bat file but that means I have to be at the machine to press next, which is time consuming.

    Has anyone managed to get a script running where they can just leave it to do its business so to speak.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Andy

    Nice and easy this one.

    Download and install 7Zip.

    You can then use that the open the Sketchup 7 installation exectuable.

    Inside you will find an MSi file.

    You can run this silently using "msiexec -i "[shared location of MSi file]\GoogleSketchUp7.msi" /qn"

    Why not just use the MSI and install it via GPO?

    Because I've standardised my methods and I find in most cases I need the extra flexibility I get from scripting using PSEXEC.
