Deploying ODAC 188.8.131.52.0
I have 64bit ODAC for Oracle client 184.108.40.206.0 to 'package' as a prerequisite . It is using the Oracle Universal Installer. there is a setup config file with the following :-
Has anyone out there done this one and if so what methods have they used.
This product uses the standard Oracle Installer, that many other Oracle products use. Record a response file of your installation/configuration by launching setup.exe with the record switch: setup.exe -record -destinationFile e.g setup.exe -record -destinationFile C:\odac.rsp Open the .rsp file in notepad and modify the 'FROM_LOCATION'. It will contain an absolute path to where you called the installer from to record it. This can be set to a relative path by using the example in the commented out section above this setting. Running 'setup.exe -help' will show you the other command line options you can specify. The below will probably be the ones you require, but there may be others that will help. -responseFile (runs the installer with the response file you created) -noconsole (hides the console window that runs) -force (forces installation into an non empty folder) -silent (silent) -waitforcompletion (installer will wait for completion instead of spawning the java engine and exiting) There is also a -deinstall switch, which along with the -silent -noconsole -responseFile swithces can be used to produce a silent uninstallation. If you wanted to clean up shortcuts etc, or add any other customisation it might be useful to create a vb script to call the installer and make the modifications required.
