Command Line Switches (PLEASE!!)

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I have googled, and seen posts back as far as 2007 for this request on these forums. You guys are pretty good at customer loyalty, however this seems like a request that hasn't been given the attention it deserves.

How about installer and SAS command line parameters, surely implementation would be simple enough, check the parameters and if the string matches, automate a specific task?

for the installer ...

/SILENTINSTALL = Automatic Installation with default settings

/DONOTSTARTAFTERINSTALL = Prevent SAS from starting after install, so manual downloaded definitions can be applied (a command line switch to shut down SAS could be used maliciously, hence this is needed)

/FULLSCAN = Start a Full Scan on all Local Drives

/QUICKSCAN = As it says

/UPDATE = Start Internet Update then exit

These command line switches would greatly help us automate our process of installing SAS onto clients machines, we do buy a lot of licenses with our credit card for you!
