As an administrator for example 300 PCs you would like
to have an installscript that automaticly pushs the
HealthMonitor Service on a Windows computer.
For the VNC RemoteServies there is a script call
"FastPush". You can read more about this tool under
http://www.darkage.co.uk/vnc/faq.htm#whatfp
If it is possible to install the HealthMonitor Service
like that, it would be grade for every administrator
because he can easily distribute it.

    I haven't experience on FastPush, if someone would like to
    provide his/her experience to deploy this feature, I'll be happy
    to add it !!!

    Seems that somebody got some result on it, I'll add a
    feedback as soon as I'll get more details.

    I think the point here refers to the ability to perform a silent,
    unattended installation, vs. FastPush in particular. FastPush
    is just an example of such a situation.

    I also maintain many machines, and use an entirely different
    architecture for pushing out software installs. But the principle
    is the same: I already have the ability to drop an EXE file on a
    remote machine and execute it, with context-sensitive
    command-line parameters. What I need is a HealthMonitor
    installation program that can accept command-line
    parameters (such as a configuration file to load) and install
    the program and start the service, all silently - i.e. no visible
    activity on the screen, and no need for a user to respond to
    anything. That would be perfect :)

    I'll ask to packaging manager if it's possible to implement
    it...

    Included Feature Request: 1497430

    Hi

    Can we please have a MSI "silent install" feature. It
    would be great if the installer can accept parameters
    and also use and expand environment variables like
    %ServerName%, etc.

    Example:

    /S -- where S=Silent Install
    /IF -- where IF=Inputfile containing custom settings
    /H -- where H=Display Tray Icon Yes or No
