For Deployment download the Snagit MSI Installer from TechSmith Website. You can find it under: http://www.techsmith.de/download/accessories/default.asp

There is also an Enterprise Installation Manual for SnagIt. Forget it!

If you have an volume license key for SnagIt you must add the following Regkeys (as REG_SZ) to your Registry:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\TechSmith\SnagIt\11]
"RegistrationKey"="yourLicenseKeyWithout -"
"RegisteredTo"="yourRegistrationUsername"

Now Snagit starts automaticly with your volume license.

To eliminate the Registration Dialog on first launch include "NoRegistrationDialogSupport"=dword:00000001 

So my final snagit.reg is:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\TechSmith\SnagIt\11\Updater]
"AllowDateBasedCheck"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\TechSmith\SnagIt\11]
"WasLicenseSent"=dword:00000001
"NoRegistrationDialogSupport"=dword:00000001
"NoAutoUpdateSupport"=dword:00000001
 
Note: even though the Enterprise Installation Manual claims that a file called snagit.reg in the same directory as snagit.msi will auto-merge the registry changes, it doesn't.

Adding the following keys will prevent auto updates (note it is Current User):

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\TechSmith\SnagIt\11\Updater]
"LastCheck"=hex(b):00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00
"DaysBetween"=dword:0000000e
"PromptToCheck"=dword:00000000
"AllowDateBasedCheck"=dword:00000000


If you specified the license key during the transform creation, add the following reg key (note it is Current User):

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\TechSmith\SnagIt\11]
"WasLicenseSent"=dword:00000001

  • For [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\TechSmith\SnagIt\11\Updater] the only required key to turn off auto updates is
    "AllowDateBasedCheck"=dword:00000000

Things to add to your mst:

 

no Signup needed:

TSC_EMAIL_SIGNUP="0" 

 

Licensekey within the installation:

TSC_SOFTWARE_KEY="XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX"

 

to start SnagIt when Windows starts:

TSC_START_AUTO="1"

 

Aditionally be sure to change this registry key so there's no license check with every installation:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\TechSmith\Snagit\11\

"WasLicenseSent"="1"

 

I have not yet found the solution to get rid of the first start tips.

Hope that helps.

To install Snagit without any user dialogs, use the ff command:

msiexec /i "..\Setup_Snagit.msi" TRANSFORMS="..\TechSmith_Snagit_11.0.1.mst" /qn

Auto Launch solution.

With the command below you will include the process on "Startup" and even without an icon on StartUp the process will appear on the task bar and also minimized with the /i switch. Be careful if your deployment is x64 or x86 the command below applies only to x64 but you can modify it to adjust the path for x86. A log off /in is needed to see it happen. And I applied this fix for SnagIt 10 but should be the same thing for many other applications except for the /i that is just assigned to SnagIt.

reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run" /f /v "Snagit User Process" /t REG_SZ /d "C:\Program Files (x86)\TechSmith\Snagit 10\Snagit32.exe /i"

Notice that this could be taken as the entry on your MSI but the problem I see here is that even if you modify your MSI to include : TSC_START_AUTO=1   I don't think that on large environments they would like to remove / reinstall the product if it was already deployed just to enable a couple of options like this.

Regards.

Command Line
If you fail to use any switches /qb /quiet /passive... and just have msiexec /i snagit.msi TRANSFORMS=snagit.mst

you will get the following error message..
This MSI has been created for Enterprise Installation use. Please use EXE for standard Snagit Installation.

I recommend downloading the Deployment Tool to make sure that all of your settings get configured correctly.
