Silent Installation
Silent Installation
Extract MSI Files
The Quest Installer can be opened in extract mode, which allows you to extract the various
product MSI installers that are contained within the Toad Editions. You can then run these MSI
files to perform silent installations.
To extract MSI files from the Quest Installer
1. Run any of the Toad Editions from the command prompt, and add the /extract parameter:
Note: You can only extract the MSI files that are contained within the bundle you select.
Make sure that you use a bundle that contains the MSI files that you require.
The Quest Installer opens in extract mode and displays the Extract Location page.
The default path for the extracted files and the extraction log is the Temp directory for the
currently logged on user:
C:\Documents and Settings\current_user\Local Settings\Temp\
2. Review the following for additional information:

Install Toad for Data Analysts Silently
Before you perform a silent installation, you must install the following software on every
computer where you are installing Toad for Data Analysts:
l
Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 (Service Pack 1)
l
(Existing DB2 client on system) Toad for Data Analysts installs a DB2 9.7 client as part
of the installation process. The DB2 9.7 client can co-exist with an existing DB2 8
client; however, it is incompatible with a DB2 7 client. If a DB2 7 client is already
installed on the system, the installation stops and cannot complete. You must first
upgrade to the DB2 8 client. Then restart the installation to avoid losing functionality in
some DB2 native tools.
To install Toad for Data Analysts silently
1. Extract the MSI from the Quest Installer. See "Extract MSI Files" (page 6) for more
information.
2. Enter the following command:
msiexec /i “<path to msi file\ToadforDataAnalysts_version.msi>” /q
You can use an msi logging switch to include an install log by entering the following:
msiexec /i “<path to msi file\ToadforDataAnalysts_version.msi>” /q /L*v
path_to_verboseLog.txt
You can override the following optional properties:
INSTALLDIR
Specify a folder other than default installation folder
READONLY
Enter TRUE if you want to install as read-only
ApplicationUsers
Enter "AllUsers" to install the product for all users, Enter
"OnlyCurrentUser" to install the product only for the user that

selected folder:
msiexec /i “path_to_installer.msi” INSTALLDIR= “Your_install_path”
READONLY=TRUE ApplicationUsers=”AllUsers” /q
Install Spotlight Silently
You cannot install the extracted Spotlight on Oracle file because it is not an MSI file and cannot
be run outside of the Quest Installer.
To obtain a copy of the Spotlight on Oracle MSI that you can install silently, contact
Quest Support.
Install Spotlight with RAC Option Silently
You cannot install the extracted Spotlight on Oracle with RAC Option because it is not an MSI
file and cannot be run outside of the Quest Installer.
To obtain a copy of the Spotlight on Oracle with RAC Option MSI that you can install silently,
contact Quest Support.
Note: The Spotlight on Oracle with RAC Option is only included in the Toad DBA Suite for
Oracle (commercial or trial) - RAC edition.
About ProductLicenses.xml
The ProductLicenses.xml file can be found in one of three locations depending upon the needs of
the product. The locations are Local User, Roaming User, and All Users. By default, all Toad
products save the license key information in the Local User directory. However, all of the Toad
products are capable of reading from any of the locations. These directories are defined by the
operating system and vary from platform to platform. The following tables list the directory
locations by platform:
Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows 2003
Local user
C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local
Settings\Application Data\Quest Software\ProductLicenses.xml
Roaming User
C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application
Data\Quest Software\ProductLicenses.xml
All Users
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Quest
Software\ProductLicenses.xml
Toad® for Oracle Editions Silent Installation Guide

Software\ProductLicenses.xml
Roaming User
C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Quest
Software\ProductLicenses.xml
All Users
C:\ProgramData\Quest Software\ProductLicenses.xml
File Format
The format of the ProductLicenses.xml file consists of a collection of license nodes. There is a
license node for each license that has been saved to the computer. Each license node is
comprised of three attributes and two elements.
The following is an example of a License node:
<License ProductName="[product name]" ProductVersion="[product version]"
KeySaveDate="[key save date]">
<LicenseKey>[License Key]</LicenseKey>
<SiteMessage>[Site Message]</SiteMessage>
</License>
License Node Attributes
The following describes the attributes for the license node:
l
ProductName—This is a case-sensitive text value that is assigned by Quest to
uniquely identify the product associated with the license key. ProductNames are not
likely to change between versions of the product. It is recommended that you do not
alter this attribute.
l
ProductVersion—This is a unique identifier for a specific version of a product. It is
typically only specific to the major version number (1.x). This means that all minor and
patch updates are still able to use this key. However it can be specified all the way down
to the build number if required by the product (1.0.0.13). Its primary purpose is to support
side-by-side installations for different versions of a product.
l
KeySaveDate—This is the date that the key was saved into the system. This is used
internally by the product for determining key priority when more than one suitable key is
found. It is interpreted as an OLE date type and is represented as a floating point number.
When performing a silent installation, or manually editing the ProductLicenses.xml file, it
is recommended that you omit this attribute. If this value is missing, the product
automatically updates this attribute with the file’s last modified date value.
Toad® for Oracle Editions Silent Installation Guide
Silent Installation
License Node Elements
The following describes the elements for the license node:
l
LicenseKey—This is the license key that was provided by Quest.
l
SiteMessage—This is also provided by Quest, and typically contains the name of the
customer and other asset information.
