please find a complete overview of the command line parameters here: http://www.pdfforge.org/node/112

My suggestion is to create an INF file with all the settings you want to use:

PDFCreator-0_9_5_setup.exe /SAVEINF="PDFCreator.inf"

Installation using the INF file:

PDFCreator-0_9_5_setup.exe /SP /SILENT /NOCANCEL /NORESTART /LOADINF="PDFCreator.inf"

Example of PDFCceator.inf (only german/english language):

[Setup]
Lang=german
Dir=C:\Programme\PDFCreator
Group=PDFCreator
NoIcons=0
SetupType=custom
Components=program,ghostscript,comsamples,helpfiles,helpfiles\german,languages,languages\english,languages\german
Tasks=winexplorer
Printername=PDFCreator
ServerInstallation=0
Win9xPrinterdriver=0
WinNtPrinterdriver=0
Win2k32bitPrinterdriver=0

In case someone wants to automate the uninstall as well, here is a little vb script that might help:

[File: Uninstall.cmd]
@ECHO OFF
ECHO Uninstalling PDFCreator
cscript Uninstall.vbs

[File: Uninstall.vbs]
Dim WSHShell
Set WSHShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

On Error Resume Next

' Retrieve uninstall command
' --------------------------
regUninstallString = "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{0001B4FD-9EA3-4D90-A79E-FD14BA3AB01D}\UninstallString"
strUninstallString = WshShell.RegRead ( regUninstallString )

' Start Uninstall
' --------------------------
Dim objRun
Set objRun = WSHShell.Run( strUninstallString & " /SILENT /NORESTART", 1, true )

' Quit this script
WScript.Quit

Some information on that:
1. regUninstallString contains the ProductID of PDFCreator. I looked into the registry to find it out.

2. UninstallString key contains the complete path to the uninst000.exe created by the setup.

3. The PDFCreator setup has been created with InnoSetup. The uninstaller from InnoSetup provided command line arguments as well for administration purposes: /SILENT /NORESTART

Hope that helps.
Christian.

Note

When uninstalling it using "nins000.exe /SILENT /NORESTART, it still asks "Delete all program settings" YES/NO. I executed the uninstall remotely with no user logged into the test machine and it still asked this when I logged on after a few minutes. Not much of a silent uninstaller!

If users belong to machine users group but installing software as admin. Following registery can be added to allow software to act in user account.

REGEDIT4

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Monitors\PDFCreator\Ports\PDFCreator:]
"Runuser"=dword:00000001


Also I noticed that following command must be run to avoid errors.

regsvr32 /s %windir%\system32\mscomct2.ocx

After these version 0.8.0 seems to work with normal user priviledges

Command Line
COMPLETELY SILENT INSTALL:

If you want to install PDF Creator completely silently, you should NOT use the /SILENT switch, you should use the /VERYSILENT switch. /SILENT is misleading and still shows some UI.

Tested on version 0.9.9

Command Line
pdf creator 1.0.2 install batch

"X:\PDFCreator-1_0_2_setup.exe" /silent /nocancel /norestart /dontuseyahoosearch /NoIcons /lang=portuguese_br /sp- /components=\"!toolbar\"

this result of an silent install in portuguese without yahootoolbar & icons (start or desktop)

Ps:seems that pdfcreator 1.1 has a bug and lots of command switchs aren't working
