It is possible to automate the installation and startup of CatTools without the need for any human interaction.

 

To install and start CatTools as a standard interactive application you will need to create a batch file that contains the following information;

 

"*AppPath\CatTools_X.X.X.exe" /S INSTALL=APP /D=*InstallPath

"*InstallPath\CatTools.exe"

 

 

So your bat file will look similar to;

 

"C:\CatTools_3.5.0.setup.exe" ??/S INSTALL=APP /D="C:\Program Files\CatTools3"

"C:\Program Files\CatTools3\CatTools.exe"

 

To install and start CatTools as a Windows service you will need to create a batch file that contains the following information;

 

"*AppPath\CatTools_X.X.X.exe" /S INSTALL=SERVICE /D=*InstallPath

"*InstallPath\CatTools_Manager.exe"

 

So your .bat file will look similar to;

 

"C:\CatTools_3.5.0.setup.exe" /S INSTALL=SERVICE /D="C:\Program Files\CatTools3"

"C:\Program Files\CatTools3\CatTools_Manager.exe"
