Command Line
Uninstall previous 14.5 silently (including supression of the web page launch):

MsiExec.exe /X{CD95F661-A5C4-44F5-A6AA-ECDD91C240BD}SHOW_WEBPAGE=0 REBOOT="ReallySuppress" /qn /Liv %TEMP%\Uninstall_WinZip.log

WinZip change their GUIDs with every new build version. To find the GUID for your installed version, go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall and search for WinZip. The GUID will be in the Uninstall string.


To install, I used AdminStudio to create an response transform (MST). The MST takes care of the license agreement, tells it to not include QuickPick and Desktop icons, tells it to use legacy compression, and turns off WinZip User Feedback.

I then roll this out using the following command-line:

start /w msiexec /i WinZip.msi TRANSFORMS=WinZip.mst INSTALLCMD="/noqp /notip /noc4u /nopredefinedjobs /autoinstall" ACCEPT=YES RUNWINZIP=0 ALLUSERS=2 REBOOT=ReallySuppress /qn /Liv %TEMP%\WinZip.log

If you don't have RUNWINZIP=0 included, WinZip will launch and at this stage it'll be unregistered.

The last thing to do is register it by copying your WinZip.wzmul license file to the required folder:

copy WinZip.wzmul "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\WinZip" >NUL

If you're NOT using a transform, then you can achieve the same result with:

start /w msiexec /i WinZip.msi INSTALLCMD="/noqp /notip /noc4u /nopredefinedjobs /autoinstall" ADDSTARTMENU=0 ADDDESKTOPICON=0 ACCEPT=YES USAGECOLLECTLOCK=1 ALLUSERS=2 REBOOT=ReallySuppress /qn /Liv %TEMP%\WinZip.log

In this case, note that we didn't need to add the RUNWINZIP=0.

In the non-transform method, if I didn't want any Start Menu > Programs icons, I could add ADDMENUGROUP=0. In my case, I wanted to customise the location of the Start Menu items, so I used a Transform to do this.

Note
to register your license automaticaly, remove the demo winzip.wzmul in your mst, and remplace buy yours in all users\application data\winzip using a transform and then changed the value of the ADD_WZMUL property from 0 to 1.

Other values to changes:

ADDDESKTOPICON=0
ADDMENUGROUP=0
ADDSTARTMENU=0

to remove the popup in the middle of the install, you can change the variable
INSTALLCMD="/noc4u /notip /autoinstall"

if you save your MST like this, you will have a fully unattended install

Note
If you're wondering why the /noaod switch isn't working, then upgrade to 15.0.9411:

- The "/noaod" switch, an MSI file customization option used with the INSTALLCMD property, is working again. It was not functioning in earlier WinZip 15 builds. This particular switch prevents WinZip from automatically opening MS Office files when you double click a Zip file.

- Double clicking a Zip file in an Outlook 2010 e-mail message, when Outlook has been installed by the "Click-to-Run" install method, no longer causes an error message to display. This MSAppVirtualization install method caused the standard Windows API being used by WinZip to return an incorrect path to the WinZip folder. An error message stating "Unable to load required file 'WZEAY32.DLL'. WinZip may require re-installation." would display. This will no longer occur.

- Running an Incremental Backup job that processes many files and updates an existing Zip file will no longer cause WinZip to stop working.

- The "Info: overwriting read only, system, or hidden file" message displayed in "View Last Output" was causing a "WinZip encountered errors.." message to be displayed. This has been fixed in build 9411.

- Security relating to Job Wizard files has been tightened.
