Command Line
Install Nvivo 11 as mentioned on the support site: http://techcenter.qsrinternational.com/desktop/nv11/nv11_unattended_command_line_installation.htm

After installing use the script below to activate the product, dont forget to create the Registration.XML as specified by the vendor.

The reason we are using this script to activate/deactivate is because the Nvivo.exe always returns 0, even on activate/deactivate failure. This script pipes the output to a variable and checks for success strings.

The script will exit with errorcode 1 if it fails.

The machine needs a working internet connection to activate!

Please check the output of the activation output from Nvivo.exe, if the vendor changes the string output, then this will fail to work.
