Silent install of Symphony (Windows)

A silent install is an installation of a software program that requires no user interaction. It is a convenient way to streamline the installation process of a desktop application without requiring any user input. This can only be performed by users with administrator access.

The Symphony Desktop Application (SDA) supports silent installation on Windows using the standard msiexec command from the command prompt or PowerShell. 

Perform a silent install of the SDA:

  1. Download the latest version of the SDA, see How to download the Symphony Desktop Application (SDA) from the Admin Portal.
  2. From the Start menu, select Run.
  3. Type cmd and press Enter. (Ensure you are running cmd as an administrator.)
  4. From the command prompt, navigate to the folder where the Symphony installation files are located.
  5. View the information on the options to run the silent install by entering the following command:
msiexec.exe /?
  1. Run the silent installation by entering the following command:
msiexec /i "Symphony.msi" /q POD_URL="" /l* symphony_install.log
    • companyabc is the name of your Symphony instance.
    • To uninstall the SDA, run the msiexec /x "current_version.msi" /q /l* symphony_uninstall.log command.
