Silent Installation of VLC on Window's 7

08/11/2017 9001 views
This sounds like it should be really simple and I have not had any issues with anything I've been setting up until now. VLC 2.2.6 will not silently install from the K2000. I can push it silently from the K1000 but i cannot push it from K2000 without user interaction. I use the /S command and that works just fine via command line locally on computer or from K1000. I have no idea why the /S is not working on the K2000. Does the same happen for anyone else? What can I do to get VLC to silently install?

Thanks in advance!!!

  • How is your post-install task configured?
  • This is what i did on the post-install task. It worked in normal command line and with other applications, just not this one.
    vlc-2.2.6-win32.exe /S

If You zip it up with a batch file, then choose an Application Post install task. This is what I run:

@Echo Off
"%~dp0vlc-2.2.6-win32.exe" /L=1033 /S /NCRC
if exist "%public%\Desktop\VLC media player.lnk" del "%public%\Desktop\VLC media player.lnk" /S

  • Thanks! Going to give that a shot, i never thought about zipping a bat file with the installer. Thanks for sharing that
    • Just updating my response. Your script did work for me. Thank you for sharing it.
