Silent installation on Windows

Administrators can configure silent installation of HCL Client Application Access (HCAA).


  • Open a command prompt, and change the directory where setup.exe/installer is copied. Then enter the following command: setup.exe -s -a /s /vSETMULTIUSER=1 PROGDIR=\\%s\\ /qn.
    Note: The -s, -a, and /s parameters are required for silent installations. -s silences the Package For the Web wrapper UI; -a passes all following command line options to the embedded package, and /s silences the embedded package's extraction UI. The /v passes the rest of the quoted string to the msiexec engine.
  • Install HCL Client Application Access to the default location: setup.exe -s -a /s /v/qn. You can change the default to your preferred program directory with the command: setup -s -a /s /vPROGDIR=[non-default path] /qn.
    Note: You can't change the default HCAA data directory.
  • To upgrade from ICAA 1.0.1 or 2.0.1 to HCAA, enter the command setup.exe -s -a /s /v/qn
