provide an silent installation, which could be used within batch-files
this would make the installation of ncrunch in large companies much more easier.
E.g. in our company (~1000 developers) we use virtual desctops, with standard images. At the moment everyone who uses ncrunch has to reinstall it manually after the reguallary recompose. If this can be done via batch it would be much easier ( and may will be integrated in the recompose process).
Already possible :)
thanks for your comment. I have already tried msiexec, unfortunatelly i got a bug in my test and nothing works. I tried it now a second time and everything works like a charm :-)
With the exception of license details (which will be handled with the license server when this is available), it should be possible to do this already :)
There is a tool called 'msiexec' that can be run on the command-line to perform a silent installation of MSIs. As long as you are able to run the batch file as an administrator, you could easily chain this into the setup of the VM.
Alternatively, you could install NCrunch manually by rigging up the batch file to copy the files into their normal install directory, then run devenv.exe /setup
