Deployment Tips (1)

Most Common Setup Type
Legacy Setup with command line support
Average Package Difficulty Rating
Rated 2 / 5 (Somewhat Easy) based on 1 ratings
Most Commonly Reported Deployment Method
Vendor Provided Command Line (switch driven)

Discovering the switches is straight-forward: TableauPrep-2018-1-2.exe /? will display the above window with all the available switches and install properties.  I was unable to turn of auto-update: the log reported "Ignoring attempt to set non-overridable variable: 'AUTOUPDATE'.

Note that per Tableau, Prep can only use 64-bit drivers:

    Tableau Prep can only use 64-bit drivers (unlike Tableau Desktop, which can use 32-bit drivers). If you already have drivers installed, but they are 32-bit,     you need to install the 64-bit Tableau Desktop drivers to use with Tableau Prep.

I used this for the install:
    TableauPrep-2018-1-1.exe /quiet /norestart /log c:\mylogfile.log ACCEPTEULA=1 DESKTOPSHORTCUT=1     STARTMENUSHORTCUT=1     SENTELEMETRY=”0”

Tableau Prep will also install, at least: 
  • Amazon Redshift ODBC Driver 64-bit 
  • MS ODBC Driver 13 for SQL Server
  • MS Visual C++ 2013 Redist (x64) 12.0.30501.0/2015 14.0.24215.1
  • PostgreSQL ODBC_64
For the uninstall:
    The uninstall string in the registry didn't work.  This did (using the original exe installer on the network source):
    TableauPrep-2018-1-2.exe /uninstall /quiet /norestart /log C:\mylogfile.log

I also uninstalled psqlODBC_64: 
    Msiexec.exe /X{3D4F4C5A-28C7-441D-81DC-2AA2C1A61B6A} /qb-! /L*v mylogfile.log

And Amazon Redshift ODBC Driver 64-bit: 
    Msiexec.exe /X{788C401A-726B-4CE7-8BC2-89FD7967A6ED} /qb-! /L*v C:\mylogfile.log
