# Silent Mode

## Introduction

A silent mode installation installs Altair Flux & FluxMotor 2022 without requiring any user interaction. The installer makes use of a response file that contains the installation options to run the installation from start to end without any user input.

## Silent Mode

1. Create a response file. Run the installer in interactive mode with the r option to save the installation properties to a response file.
[INSTALLER_NAME] -r "[RESPONSE_PATH]\installer.properties"
2. Trigger a silent mode installation from the command line using one of the following options:
• Use the default property values as provided by the installer package.
[INSTALLER_NAME] -i silent -DACCEPT_EULA=YES
Important:
• Setting -DACCEPT_EULA=YES means that you accept the terms of the License Agreement and allows you to proceed with Altair Flux & FluxMotor installation
• If nothing is specified for ACCEPT_EULA variable or if -DACCEPT_EULA=NO then Altair Flux & FluxMotor will not be installed
• Specify properties.
[INSTALLER_NAME] -i silent -D[Property]=[VALUE]
• For example:

-DACCEPT_EULA=YES -DUSER_INSTALL_DIR=C:\\Program Files\\Altair\\2022
• Use a response file containing properties.
[INSTALLER_NAME] -i silent -f "[RESPONSE_PATH]\installer.properties"
Note:
• [INSTALLER_NAME] is the installer binary.
• [RESPONSE_PATH] is the path where the response file resides.
• Use quotes around directory and pathnames that contain spaces.
• Do not use spaces between VARIABLE=VALUE statements in the response file.
