MSI Installer

Since a lot of you were asking for a blind installer and/or an msi installer. We have now created an msi installer with nomacs 3.6 beta. We would be happy if you could test this installer and leave feedback here, so that switching to msi in the next version works smooth.

  1. …unfortunately I must rephrase what I have written in my last post: the msi installer creates the registry entries ONLY for the user who is currently installing the software ([HKCU] branch).
    If the install command has been execution with elevation, then the software is then properly installed and available to all users, and in that case it would be preferable that registry entries were created for all users ( in the [HKLM] branch)

  2. in my tests the msi installer has also worked properly. Is there any (even minimal) documentation of msi switches available?

  3. Wir haben nun noch einen Punkt der MSI Installation festgestellt und zwar, wenn Nomacs deinstalliert wird, bleibt der Uninstall registry key erhalten, sprich, dieser muss manuell gelöscht werden.
    Jetzt kommt es natürlich bei uns zu Problemen, da wir eine Inventur laufen lassen, die prüft, welche Software installiert ist, da aber der regkey nicht automatisch bei einer Deinstallation gelöscht wird, geht unsere Software davon aus, dass Nomacs noch installiert ist.

  4. What about silent installation and proxy ? Previously we had install-script.js and –proxy , how do we set up proxy now ?

    Any documentation on unattended install ?

    1. you don’t need the proxy anymore – for the msi installer is offline.
      the unattended install can be invoked by
      nomacs-setup-x64.msi /passive
      nomacs-setup-x64.msi /qn

  5. Many thanks for this!
    Used this .msi to deploy nomacs in a school across 300 devices running Windows 10 Enterprise through SCCM.
    Worked a treat, no issues at all.
