unattended install

  • Nobody/Anonymous

    Is there a way to get 7zip installed automatically from a batch file, like with most professional installers?

    I only found that /Q switch, which however still brings up the  overly redundant "Do you want to install...?" box.

    Does every SFX created by 7zip have such a thing? Or was the 7zip installer/setup file itself packaged with something else?

      I already found out about -y /q (it was actually easy to find in the docs) - but many thanks for the hint anyhow, that's a great SF.net project you pointed me to!

      However, I'd also have another feature request right here: if the 7-Zip installer already supports this mode of operation, it would be great if it also supported automatic registration for all yet unassigned archive file types/extensions at installation time.

      They've updated their site, see instead:

      The switches are different from 3.13 and 4.15. What installer is used for the latest beta and what are its switches for silent install?

        3.13 - 7-Zip SFX + IExpress
        4.15 - NSIS.

        4.15: /S

      *grin* Darn that was fast. Thanks. I was going to post that I found it through looking at the temp files ns*.tmp   I appreciate the reply though. Keep up the good work.
