Dragon Naturally Speaking 12

I am trying to deploy Dragon with PDQ Deploy, but the installation hangs because the msi needs the license key input. I am not sure what script parameters i need to input to keep the installation going and pass through the license key.

If ver. 12 is anything like ver. 11, you can use this script as a guide.  I created it for a client who purchased individual licenses, so it'll prompt the user to manually type the serial number.  If you have one license, it makes it that much easier:

@echo off

Set SN=

Echo Please enter the serial number, including dashes, below.
Echo example: 12345-123-1234-1234-12
Echo Verify your serial number before pressing Enter or the install will hang.

Set /P SN="serial number: "

Echo Thank you.
