2.2.1.1. Installing OPSWAT Central Management using a command line interface

On Windows systems, it is possible to silently install the product by executing the corresponding .msi file from the command-line interface.

If OPSWAT Central Management version 7.12.0 or higher has not been previously installed, before starting the installation, please ensure that either the JRE_HOME or JAVA_HOME system environment variable is set properly according to the system requirement. These environment variables are used to initialize OPSWAT Central Management's configuration.

Please note that the environment variables should be set under the System section.

From the command-line interface, execute the command:

msiexec /i <.msi file> /quiet

For example:

msiexec /i C:\OPSWATCentralManagement.msi /quiet

Administrator permission is required for this command.

Alternatively, to start a GUI-assisted installation process - as in Installing OPSWAT Central Management using the installation wizard, execute the command:

msiexec /i <.msi file>

For example:

msiexec /i C:\OPSWATCentralManagement.msi

Windows Installer provides specific arguments for the installation/uninstallation process using a .msi file.
