Silent install for 3D printer programs

I would like to know if there's a silent install for a program called  OpenScad.
Also, is there a way to skip the first open setup wizard for a program called Cura? If so, how would you do it?
And last question, another program called Slic3r only supplies a ZIP file, no exe. How would one deploy this program?
We use SCCM on SQL server 2012.

all i did for cura is create an SCCM package with the install command as  :   cura file name.exe /S

My detection method is the executable in c:\program files (x86)\cura foldername\cura-lulzbot.exe

Worked like a charm.

I'll package it for you!
Actually I don't know if I'm allowed? I have a eval that I need to test out and I have no software to package. lol.

Anyway I probably shouldn't as its a bit naughty.

Now back to your issue. I had a quick look at OpenScad, this is a setup.exe installer - this will need to be repackaged with tool like Repackager (Adminstudio) or AppDeploy Repackager (itninja). Try AppDeploy Repackager as its free. The OpenScad app is pretty straight forward and should fit your needs.

Slic3r can be repackaged like the above as well. Just a thought, with the OpenScad and Cura, they are both Null Soft installers, they might have silent install switches. Might be worth using if you dont want the self healing properties of MSI's.

In regards to Slic3r, that will need repackaged.

Cura, the files are stored in C:\users\%username%\.cura
This is where the config is stored and if the files are there it will no prompt for the wizard anymore. If you really want to get rid of the wizard when you open this software, then you will def need to repackage it - then you need to use self heal properties of Windows Installer (MSI) to populate the user profile space with those files. You can of course do this via other means, but remember this is a person user thing.

Hope this helps, good luck!
