Hi There,

 

Has anyone tried to install RSAP Design Spreadsheets / Spreadsheet Calculator silently via SMS or as a package??? I need some advice on how to do this if possible.

 

Regards,

I have updated old document. Screen Shots (paths \ filenames) are outdated but the rest should work.

 

 

PS

Of course you can use batch file \ command to run installation:

SpreadsheetCalculator2013_Content.exe -s -f2c:\SC.log    (log file SC.log will be created on each computer on c: root folder)

Many thanks for providing this, however, i'm stuggling to get this to work i think... Are you able to offer any further advice?

 

I have managed to create a setup.iss file located in the Windows folder by using the -r (switch) which i have copied into a folder on our shared network drive which uses dfs for replication along with the spreadsheetcalculator2013_content.exe

 

Then I created an ipf file with the following information...

 

item: Remark
  Text=---Robot Structural Analysis Pro Design Spreadsheets for Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis 2013---
end
item: Execute Program
  Pathname=Extensions\spreadsheetcalculator2013_content.exe
  Command Line=/s
  Default Directory=\\dfs\KITS\ADesk\Robot Structural Analysis Pro 2013 X64
  Flags=00000010
end

 

Extensions is the folder with the exe and the iss in.

 

I then compiled the ipf too an exe file and ran the file which seems to do something, however if i check the Control Panel, it doesnt state that the Design Spreadsheets are installed...

 

I've tried the shortcut as suggested but it didnt do as expected... am i pathing to the wrong thing?

 

I did have success with the Log file as suggested but it gave me very little information...

 

[InstallShield Silent]
Version=v7.00
File=Log File
[ResponseResult]
ResultCode=-5

 

Regards,

Duncan Brannan

1. Check if SC is working as it should - load any sheet from library.

2. Run installation (-r) manually \ by batch

3. Let me know the results. If failed I need to check this installation on my side.

When i load the Spreadsheet Calculator i just get a blank sheet with no options to select a template...

 

Installing manually, the Design Spreadsheet works fine and i get a pop up asking which template i want, i just need a way to install this working method silently via SMS.

 

Would you mind checking from your side and confirming the steps etc.

 

Regards,

 

Duncan

Hi Rafal,

 

I was wondering if there is an update to this or can i presume that it is not possible to install this silently? i did receive an email from Autodesk asking if this had been resolved of which i said no, but that was the last i heard anything...

 

Thanks in advance
