Installer Program Options


Consider the following syntax, where brackets indicate optional parameters and the vertical bar separates possible values.

[start /w] msiexec.exe /i Enscape.msi [/quiet ACCEPTEULA=1] [SKIPREQUIREMENTS=1] [ALLUSERS=0|1] [INSTALLLOCATION="Drive:\Path\To\Installation Directory"] [INSTALLLEVEL=0 ADDLOCAL=Enscape[,ArchiCAD][,Rhino][,Revit][,SketchUp]]

NOTE: the ‘Enscape.msi’ installer name in the Syntax example above will likely be named differently, according to the version number, and that naming should be observed when compiling your Syntax.

Here is the breakdown of the available options and what they refer to.

  • start /w – Wait for installer process termination – This is not a program option, but a recommended windows feature
  • /quiet – Install silently (Do not show GUI) (ATTENTION: If /quiet is specified, ACCEPTEULA=0|1 must also be specified).
  • ACCEPTEULA=0|1 – Set to 1, the EULA will be automatically accepted. Set to 0 will require the user confirms acceptance of the EULA via a pop-up.
  • SKIPREQUIREMENTS=0|1 – Set to 1 will skip the requirements dialogue window.
  • LOCALE=de|en-US – To select the language you want Enscape to install for.
  • ALLUSERS=0|1 – If set to 0, Enscape will only be installed for the currently logged in user. Set to 1 Enscape will be installed for all users.
  • SKIPCERTIFICATES=0|1 – Set to 1 to skip the installation of certificates.
  • INSTALLLOCATION= – Here you can set the path to the directory where you would like to install Enscape.
  • INSTALLLEVEL=0|1 – If set to 1 all the sub-features of Enscape will be installed. If set to 0 only the Enscape main feature will be installed. You can then append this command with:
      • ADDLOCAL=Enscape[,ArchiCAD][,Rhino][,Revit][,SketchUp] – to install additional sub features.


Consider the following two examples for the Command Prompt.

To perform a silent installation for all users to “C:\Program Files\Enscape” you would use the following command with admin privileges:

start /w msiexec.exe /i Enscape.msi /quiet ACCEPTEULA=1 ALLUSERS=1 INSTALLLOCATION="C:\Program Files\Enscape"

For a silent installation of Enscape with only the Sketchup plugin for the current user:
start /w msiexec.exe /i Enscape.msi /quiet ACCEPTEULA=1 ALLUSERS=0 INSTALLLEVEL=0 ADDLOCAL=Enscape,SketchUp

The second example will silently install Enscape to “%LocalAppData%\Programs\Enscape” for the current user. No “EULA” window will be displayed. The plugin will be installed for SketchUp. No admin privileges will be required.
