    The installer used for ooRexx has changed form the Object
    REXX installer.
    To install silently into c:\oorexx, use the following:

    oorexx302.exe /S /D=c:\oorexx

    Note that there is a slight problem with silent installation
    in the current release if rxapi.exe is currently running.
    This will be fixed in the next release.

    This does not work:

    "C:\Data\ooRexx\3.01\ooRexx301.exe" /S /D="C:\Program
    Files\OpenSrc\ooRexx"

    Is it a feature of 3.02 and up ?

    I just tested with a directory with spaces like you and it
    failed. The "problem" is the quotes around the directory name!
    NSIS installer requires that the /D= switch is the last
    switch on the command line, and DO NOT quote the directory name.
    This is a bit odd, but unfortunately that appears to be the
    rules NSIS imposes.

    yes, and make sure it is the real last parameter !
    eg. oorex301.exe /S >log.file 2>&1 /D=............
