The PuTTy MSI installer is a software package that simplifies the installation process of the popular PuTTy SSH and Telnet client on Windows operating systems. It offers a streamlined, easy-to-use interface, allowing users to quickly and easily deploy PuTTy on their systems.
To run the MSI installer as completely silent, use the command - msiexec.exe /i MSIinstaller.msi /q /norestart. This method ensures that the installation is done entirely without any interference.
If you want to run the MSI installer as automated but displayed to the end-user, you can use the following command- msiexec.exe /i MSIinstaller.msi /passive /norestart. This approach portrays a graphical interface to guide the end-user during the installation, but it eliminates the need for interference.
In using the MSI installer for mass deployment, there are various parameters that you need to know. The following parameters are the most common:
-msiexec.exe: This parameter initiates the MSI installer engine.
-/i: This parameter instructs the msiexec.exe to run an installation.
-MSIinstaller.msi: This is the filename for the MSI installer.
-/q: This parameter enables the msiexec.exe to run as silent.
-/passive: This parameter allows the msiexec.exe to run as automated but displayed to the end-use.
-/norestart: This parameter disallows an automatic restart after installation completion.
It is essential to note that various MSI installers may have different parameters depending on their specific functionality. However, the above-listed parameters are the most commonly used for the MSI installer.
