3.2 Installer Usage
Generated installers and uninstallers accept a few options on the command line. These options give the user a bit more control over the installation process.
3.2.1 Common Options
- /NCRC disables the CRC check, unless
forcewas used in the script.
- /S runs the installer or uninstaller silently. See section 4.12 for more information.
- /D sets the default installation directory ($INSTDIR), overriding InstallDir and InstallDirRegKey. It must be the last parameter used in the command line and must not contain any quotes, even if the path contains spaces. Only absolute paths are supported.
3.2.2 Uninstaller Specific Options
- _?= sets $INSTDIR. It also stops the uninstaller from copying itself to the temporary directory and running from there. It can be used along with ExecWait to wait for the uninstaller to finish. It must be the last parameter used in the command line and must not contain any quotes, even if the path contains spaces.
installer.exe /D=C:\Program Files\NSIS
installer.exe /NCRC /S /D=C:\Program Files\NSIS
uninstaller.exe /S _?=C:\Program Files\NSIS
# uninstall old version ExecWait '"$INSTDIR\uninstaller.exe" /S _?=$INSTDIR'
