Silent install

03/19/2020 689 views

Need to figure out how to perform a silent and unattended install of the Google Video Support Plugin. The name of the executable installer is GoogleVoiceAndVideoSetup.exe and can be downloaded directly from Google at https://www.google.com/tools/dlpage/hangout. I've tried all the "standard" switches I could think of, but none of them work. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance for your invaluable time!

A lot of google products use:

ProgramName.exe /silent /install

There is more than one installer which insist on the correct case for their arguments/switches. /s will work, /S will be ignored. I love those ones...

If all else fails, repackage it.

Lastly, Google developers are amongst the laziest around. Pretty much every "Enterprise" installer supplied in MSI format is simply a wrapper for their EXE installer. Hopeless.
