Thanks so much for the changes to the .msi and for the .bat instructions for the silent install. What a time saver!
Regarding the pc password versus access code. A lot of the people that I install this on have no pc password, and usually in this case, LMI will ask them to create and verify an Access Code. Assuming that the person does NOT have a pc password set for their computer, what will the access code be if I use the batch script for the silent install? Is there a way to edit the .msi or the .bat to account for this circumstance, and if so, how?
Also, some of my customers are Mac users. Is there a similar method to edit the LMI installer on the Mac?
Anyone have a solution to the pc password vs access code issue?
: I just figured this out, so I will post the solution in case anyone else is interested. *Note you need to have already done the above steps to make your custom LogMeIn install prior to applying the settings below.
My batch file looks like this:
logmein.msi /qb- USERPASSWORD=******* USERVERIFYPWD=******* USEREMAILemail@example.com USERWEBPASSWORD=password LicenseType=free
- Open up LogMeIn.msi in Orca, and navigate to "property"
- Scroll down and change the values of USERPASSWORD & USERVERIFYPWD to whatever you want the PC access code set to for the computers that will be installing LogMeIn on.
- If you have a batch file set up for the silent install, change the values of USERPASSWORD & USERVERIFYPWD to the same PC access code that you set for the LogMeIn.msi property settings in Orca.
For those that are new to batches
- Open up a blank text document using notepad or similar
- Enter the info above (replacing the *'s with the PC access code password that you set, and replacing the value of the useremail and password with your own LogMeIn account info).
- Save as filename.BAT
Once that is complete, any user that wants to install LogMeIn on their computer using your Custom install, just has to double click on your batch file, and presto, LogMeIn nearly silently installs with no errors, and most importantly, the PC access code is set automatically
I hope that helps anyone else who was seeking to perform the Silent install, but was running into the issue of having to know the username and password for each computer that you wanted to remotely access through LogMeIn.
The only issue that I still have, is that anyone who you send the Custom LogMeIn install will have access to your LogMeIn account online, because they can just get your email and LogMeIn password from the batch file. Anyone know of a way to protect this information from clients?
PS: Sorry for the Caps, but that is how they are displayed in Orca and the batch.
