The instructions for installing Acoustica Mixcraft 6 are contained in a PDF on the CD.  If I could upload it I would but I will just copy and paste it for now.

Install-Unattended.bat

 echo off

:: Get ADMIN Privs
:-------------------------------------
mkdir "%windir%\BatchGotAdmin"
if '%errorlevel%' == '0' (
rmdir "%windir%\BatchGotAdmin" & goto gotAdmin
) else ( goto UACPrompt )

:UACPrompt
echo Set UAC = CreateObject^("Shell.Application"^) > "%temp%\getadmin.vbs"
echo UAC.ShellExecute %0, "", "", "runas", 1 >> "%temp%\getadmin.vbs"

"%temp%\getadmin.vbs"
exit /B

:gotAdmin
if exist "%temp%\getadmin.vbs" ( del "%temp%\getadmin.vbs" )
:: pushd "%CD%"
::CD /D "%~dp0"
:-------------------------------------
:: End Get ADMIN Privs



pushd "%~dp0"

Unattended Installer PDF

 MIXCRAFT 6 UNATTENDED INSTALLATION
This file will help guide you through the process of performing a multi-computer network
install. The benefits are that you do not have to go through the installer process on every
single computer. Computers will not have to be individually registered and the loop library
can be shared in order to conserve on network space.
1) Double click the file called "mixcraft-config.ini"
2) You will see a number of variables
LOOP_LIBRARY_FOLDER=
REG_ID=
REG_CODE=
INSTALL_LOOPS=0
SKIP_DEMO_SONG=0
SUPPRESS_UPDATE_CHECKS=0
DISACT=0
3) Do not change the name of these variables.
4) Add the appropriate information after the equal sign. For example, if you want to
automatically register all your computers using Mixcraft, enter in the Registration ID
after REG_ID=. If your registration ID was computer@123.com, then the line would
read REG_ID=computer@123.com
5) Variables explained.
(You do not need to change all variables. Just the ones you want.)
REG_ID
This is your registration ID.
REG_CODE
This is your registration code.
LOOP_LIBRARY_FOLDER
This is the path of the loop library folder. This can be a UNC file path if it is on a
network. For example, if your loop library was on a machine called "SchoolNet1", in
a shared folder called "MixcraftLoopLibrary", you could then set it up with
"LOOP_LIBRARY_FOLDER=\\SchoolNet1\MixcraftLoopLibrary\"
INSTALL_LOOPS
If your installer includes the loops and you want it to install the loops to each computer,
set INSTALL_LOOPS=1 . If you are sharing the loops on a network drive. Install the
loops once and then after that, set this to 0 and then make sure to set the
LOOP_LIBRARY_FOLDER variable.
SKIP_DEMO_SONG
If you want to skip the demo song on each computer, set the SKIP_DEMO_SONG=1
SUPPRESS_UPDATE_CHECKS
If you want the software to suppress checking for updates automatically, set the
SUPPRESS_UPDATE_CHECKS=1. Also, set DISACT=1 if you use registry restoring
software such as Deep Freeze.
6) Save the new "mixcraft-config.ini" on a network folder.
7) Copy the other file to the same network folder.
Install-Unattended.bat
mixcraft-config.ini
Acoustica-Mixcraft-6-Installer.exe
8) As an administrator, set each network computer to run the "Install-
Unattended.bat" file on the network. If that is not possible, you should manually run
the "Install-Unattended.bat" on the network location for each computer and/or
user.
> Install-Unattended.bat
or
> \\share\folder1\folder2\Install-Unattended.bat
where \\share\folder1\folder2\ is the location of the installer on a UNC drive.
Recommendation
We recommend running "Acoustica-Mixcraft-6-Installer.exe" once to install the
loop library on a network drive if desired. Once the library is at a location on the network,
install all computers to reference that library location by setting the variable
LOOP_LIBRARY_FOLDER to the net location.
(Use a UNC naming convention in case drives are not mapped to a drive letter, etc.)
Troubleshooting Section
Here are some things to try if it things are not working.
• Make sure all files are in the same folder. This will include the following:
• Install-Unattended.bat
• mixcraft-config.ini
• Acoustica-Mixcraft-6-Installer.exe
• If Mixcraft is not being registered on your computer, make sure that you set the proper
REG_ID and REG_CODE variables in "mixcraft-config.ini"
• Make sure to to put quotes “ around paths that have spaces in them. For example, if
you were installing from an UNC folder called \\cool school server\mixcraft 6\, you
would invoke the batch file with “\\cool school server\mixcraft 6\Install-Unattended.bat”
If you are still having problems, please contact support@acoustica.com and let us know that
you are attempting to do a network install to multiple computers.
