Command Line
Read180 Enterprise Edition 1.4 uses InstallAnywhere command line switches. These did not work for the suite install, but do work on the individual client installs for Read180, SRC, SRI, rSkills and ReadAbout.

"install.exe -i silent" for a silent installation

"install.exe -r" will create an answer file called installer.properties

Running a silent install from the same location as installer.properties will cause the response file to be used automatically.

Note
Regarding Read180 Enterprise Edition 1.4, I was not able to automate the Suite installation, I had to do each client individually.

Also, the silent installations didn't cooperate with an UNC path and needed a local mapping when run from a server. Manual installs worked fine.

So here's what I did:

-Run each client installer with the "install.exe -r" switch to generate the installer.properties file. The default file creation location is in the same directory as the install.exe.

-Opened the installer.properties file and added "INSTALLER_UI=silent" which substitutes for the "install.exe -i silent" (this was just a personal preference)

-For the Read180 client, I also added "MEDIA_SERVER=C:\\ScholasticEEMedia\\Read180Media" to the installer.properties file. This eliminates the need to manually enter the media server location later via the Read180 preferences application. (We dump all the media locally...)

-Distributed through Zenworks.
