Silent Install with MSI for use with License Server

Postby nlfdss » Wed Oct 16, 2013 11:03 am

I am looking to deploy CodonCode using the MSI extracted from the installer and allow for the license server information be populated at the time of installation rather than manually entered during the first run.

The CodonCode Aligner installer we provide is an executable to (a) allow automatic selection of the correct application version for 32- and 64-bit systems, and (b) allow better compression than MSI archives. It is theoretically possible to copy the MSI installer and unpacked source files while the installer is running, and it might be possible to use these files for a silent install. However, we do not support this.

It is possible to specify the license server location by placing a text file in the folder where CodonCode Aligner is installed (typically C:\Program Files\CodonCode Aligner\). This file must be named "LicenseServerLocation.txt", and contain a line with the either the name or the IP address of the license server computer in the following format:
ServerName=name.xx.yy
or
ServerAddress=nn.nn.nn.nn

Specifying the IP address requires that the license server computer has a static IP address; specifying the name requires that a properly configured local name server is used by the client computers.

Is there a similar location for the "LicenseServerLocation.txt" file for the OS X version?

The location on Mac OS X is also in the folder where you installed CodonCode Aligner which is usually in Applications.
