Installer Program Options


Consider the following Syntax.

[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]]

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, [ALLUSERS] must be specified as well. Be careful: With [ALLUSERS] as elevated privileges are required, and the process will not be able to elevate itself. Thus, running msiexec.exe with only the /quiet switch will fail.)
  • [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.
  • [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.
  • [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 example lines of installation command:

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

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 “C:\My 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.
