"When doing a silent install you can use the following parameters to configure the installation of TIBCO Spotfire desktop client:

SERVERURL" - This specifies the standard server that Spotfire will have defined when opening the 
Spotfire desktop client the first time.
"ALLUSERS" - If this is not set or if it is set to 0, then the program shortcuts will only be created for the account running the Installer.
"INSTALLDIR" - You can use this to specify where to install the program. If it is not specified the program will be installed in the standard %programfiles% folder.

You can either use the standard .exe Installer or if your software distribution system needs an .msi file, you can extract the .msi Installer from the .exe file.

Using the .exe file to install:
setup-x.x.x.exe /s /v/qn /V"/l*v logfile.txt ALLUSERS=1 SERVERURL=http://spotfireserver:port/INSTALLDIR=\"C:\Somewhere\""

  • /S /v/qn tells the .exe to extract the .msi file silently and run the msi Installer. If you'd like the users to see a progress bar during the install, then change qn to qb.
  • /V"....." specifies which parameters to send the the .msi Installer.
  • /l*v logfile.txt will create a verbose installations log in the directory where the installer is run from.

Using the .msi file to install:

To extract the .msi file from the.exe file you will need to run the .exe and leave it at the first screen. This will unpack the .msi file in the following location:

“C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Downloaded Installations\{ADB39533-DBAD-46EF-BA11-08D9B24E6820}\TIBCO Spotfire.msi”, where USERNAME is the username of the user running the .exe file. You can then copy the .msi file from the folder and then cancel the current installation.

Once you have the .msi file you can run/package it using a command such as the following:

msiexec /qn /i "FULL PATH\TIBCO Spotfire.msi" SETUPEXEDIR="%TEMP%" ALLUSERS=1SERVERURL=http://spotfireserver:port/ INSTALLDIR="PATH to where you'd like to install the client"
  • If you would like the users to see a progress bar during the install, then change qn to qb.
  • FULL PATH needs to be set to the full path of where the "Tibco Spotfire.msi" file is located.
  • The SETUPEXEDIR parameter needs to be specified for the .msi package to work correctly. It does not need to point specifically to “%TEMP%”, just where the installation account has write access to."
