Creating a silent install by using the command line - KB

Note: The IDexAgent_1_5_x64.msi installation program can be obtained from your Smoothwall representative.

Note: If installing to a clean Windows-based device, that is, one that has not been assigned to a user yet, or has not connected to the Internet yet, you should launch the system browser (such as Internet Explorer or Edge) now before continuing.

You can create an unattended installation to deploy the IDex Client out to all network devices. This section only provides guidance for the IDex Client.

Create a script that includes the following command line:

msiexec /i "path-to-installer.msi" SMOOTHWALLIP="<host>" SMOOTHWALLPORT="<port>" /quiet


Note: You don't need to restart the device to complete the installation. Users won't see an icon in the system tray for the IDex Client.


msiexec /i "\\mynetworkdrive\downloads\IDexClient_x64.msi" SMOOTHWALLIP="" SMOOTHWALLPORT="1080" /quiet
