We are going to implement this in a month or two. Or do you need this urgently?

No thank, i think i can wait 1 month or two, as i am updating my unattended cd very often, i `ll add OE when your job will be done.

anyway, what a fast support, can`t say anything else than AWESOME, keep up very good job

What we plan to do is to add a command-line parameter, say, opsetup.exe /silent "/dir=c:\Program Files\Offline Explorer Pro\" to do that installation. Would this be enough?

if you stop at this point, i`ll tell you that it`s fairly enought for a clean silent install, but if you can do more, do use something like : OE.exe /silent /[installpath] /[configfile] where configfile contain all the parameters from the menu>tool>option

Thank

The last thing can be easily implemented using a .reg file. You can install Offline Explorer on a computer, then save its Registry key and use it on other computers.

No problem, for myself, i can manage it that way, but the reg values are stored in HKEY_USERS and the user-id change every time you re-install Windows.

So : simply importing the reg file won`t work on a fresh install if you don`t replace the user-id, i have a batch file to do that, but aren`t we talking of something that work for everyone...

Has this been implemented? Doesn't seem so, since your command-line doesn't do anything different than starting opsetup.exe normally.

I am sorry. Please use:

opsetup.exe /S "/dir=c:\Program Files\Offline Explorer Pro\"

I'm trying to install this silently on a Win 7 64bit workstation and it isn't working. It just hangs on the screen asking for the install Dir. I'm installing 6.3 SP2.

opsetup.exe /S "/dir=C:\Program Files (x86)\Offline Explorer Pro\"
