Can any body help on the silent switches for IBM Cognos TM220 server application.

I found "*.ats" file in "InstLogs" folder and tried with the below switch.

issetup -s "Path of ats file name"

It is getting installed silently but I am getting one window in task bar where we can close the installation of the application.

But my client require this application to be installed without any close button for the taskbar window (OR) it shoulod not show any window.

Can anybody pelase help on this?

Answer this question or Comment on this question for clarity




Did you drag the setup.exe file in cmd prompt ?

setup.exe /? to give thesilent switches. If it is a silent one it should not wait for you to close the windows after if it is finished. What is tm110 server and tm220 server, I have only heard about tm1 server.

Thank you for the reply.

This is TM1 server only but 64bit with version 10.1.1

I have checked the command lines of issetup.exe whcih is having below switch.

issetup [ -buildnum | -h | -s [<filename>] | -ats [<filename>]]

I have tried with the above command,It is getting installed silently, but we are getting the window in taskbar there we can cancel the installation.

So I want to suppress that window as well(which will come in taskbar).
