Silent installation switches?

Morning,

I wondered if there were silent installation switches for the .exe installer?

Regard

PDFPropertyExtension setup is built with NSIS, so you can use its default /S (uppercase) silent switch.

Re: Silent installation switches?

We are using the silent installation for deploying the program to several computers.

If however another PropertyHandler is already installed, the program will fail to install, as when installed silently we can't choose to replace it.

Is there a way to force this, so that a silent installation automatically chooses to become the standard PropertyHandler?

Sorry for the late reply.

I've just released version 1.13.1 that fixes the issue.
Now silent installer (/S switch) automatically answers YES to question "Do you want to replace existing PDF handler...", replacing the existing PDF handler.

New version can be downloaded here:

Thank you very much. We have just tested it, and it works.

Thank you again :)
