PaperVision Web Assistant Silent Install


This article describes how to silently install the PaperVision Web Assistant document viewer. This is useful for System Administrators that want to deploy the application to multiple client computers with no user intervention. Note that different versions require additional pre-requisite installations, as noted below.


Prerequisites for all versions:

Prequisites for R76-R79: The Visual C++ 2005 SP1 (x86) Redistributable Package must be installed on the target machine(s) first. The install can be downloaded from Download and install the vcredist_x86.exe file.

The PaperVision Enterprise Web Assistant installation file can be accessed from the Downloads section of a PaperVision Enterprise website, or from a network share. For workstations that have the User Account Control (UAC) enabled, the installer must be run with elevated permissions.

To install, open a command prompt using the Run as administrator option and enter: “<path>PaperVision Client.exe” /S /v/qn (OR "<path>PaperVision Web Assistant.exe /S /v/qn" for R83.5 or earlier). Please note there are spaces before and after /S but not /v/qn. Once the application is installed, the PaperVision Web Assistant icon will be displayed in the system tray on the target machine and is automatically connected. The Web Assistant can also be accessed from the Start menu in the Digitech Systems Program Group.
