Install an NTBR in silence mode

     

    It is possible to install an NTBR without GUI.

    Please note that installing NTBRs in silence mode may require technical knowledges in msi installer. If you have any doubt, please contact Newtest Support service before performing any action.

     

    Attention!

    If you have already an Newtest Robot installed on your machine, you will need to pay attention to two things :

    1. You will need to firstly stop the following instances before installing the NTBR :
      • Your Robot (Even though they are on different sessions of the machine) : Although the NTBR installer will automatically kill all existing Newtest processes at the beginning of the installation, it would be better if you could stop your robots through NMC web interface.
      • For Robots which have NRM service : NRM service on the machine (Feasible with cmd lines, c.f. following section). 
      • For Robots which have NRM service : NRM Proxy (Feasible with cmd lines, c.f. following section).
    2. The installation may overwirte certain registry keys shared with the Robot.

     

    Stop NRM service and NRM proxy with cmd lines

    NTBR installer will kill all existing Newtest processes at the beginning of the installation so that processes of Newtest Robot such as RunNewtestWait and Schedule will be killed.

    The installation may take some time to perform and if the NRM service is still on, it will detecte that Newtest Robot is not running so that it will perform a reboot of the machine in order to relaunch the Robot.

    This is the main reason why you need to stop the NRM service and kill NRM proxy before the installation. 

    To do so with cmd lines, you may use the following commands :

    reference to undefined name 'syntax' Une exception de type 'MindTouch.Deki.Script.Runtime.DekiScriptUndefinedNameException' a été levée. (click for details)

    Don't forget to restart them after your installation

    reference to undefined name 'syntax' Une exception de type 'MindTouch.Deki.Script.Runtime.DekiScriptUndefinedNameException' a été levée. (click for details)

    Or you can reboot the machine instead :

    reference to undefined name 'syntax' Une exception de type 'MindTouch.Deki.Script.Runtime.DekiScriptUndefinedNameException' a été levée. (click for details)

     

    Silence mode installation with arguments

    The installation commands are different for NTBR v7.6.0 and NTBR v7.5.1. 

     

    For NTBR v7.5.1

    You have only one possible argument to define in NTBR v7.5.1 because it uses the same path as its data directory :

    • INSTALLDIR : NTBR installation directory

    ​Here's an example of installing your NTBR in C:\NTBR\ :

    reference to undefined name 'syntax' Une exception de type 'MindTouch.Deki.Script.Runtime.DekiScriptUndefinedNameException' a été levée. (click for details)

     

    Tips: If your installation doesn't finish correctly and you find Syntax error in Newtest logs concerning the \ symbol before the end double-quote, you may try the following command string.

    reference to undefined name 'syntax' Une exception de type 'MindTouch.Deki.Script.Runtime.DekiScriptUndefinedNameException' a été levée. (click for details)

    Attention! The first command string follows Microsoft's recommendation and is our official installation command. The second one could be a potential workaround, however, if you have any doubt, please contact Newtest Support service before performing any action.

     

    For NTBR v7.6.0

    You have two possible arguments to define in silence mode installation :
    1. INSTALLDIR : NTBR installation directory
    2. NEWTESTDATA : Newtest product data directory

     

    Here's an example of installing your NTBR in C:\NTBR\ and use C:\NewtestData\ as Data directory :
    reference to undefined name 'syntax' Une exception de type 'MindTouch.Deki.Script.Runtime.DekiScriptUndefinedNameException' a été levée. (click for details)
     
    Attention! You need to note that NEWTESTDATA is a path shared by NTBR and Robot. If your robot has another value as data directory, it will be overwritten by the new value defined here.
     
    Tips: If your installation doesn't finish correctly and you find Syntax error in Newtest logs concerning the \ symbol before the end double-quote, you may try the following command string.
    reference to undefined name 'syntax' Une exception de type 'MindTouch.Deki.Script.Runtime.DekiScriptUndefinedNameException' a été levée. (click for details)
     
    Attention! The first command string follows Microsoft's recommendation and is our official installation command. The second one could be a potential workaround, however, if you have any doubt, please contact Newtest Support service before performing any action.
     

    Silence mode installation without arguments

     

    You may install an NTBR in silence mode without giving any special arguments during the installation.

    Please use the following command to install NTBR in silence mode without arguments :

    reference to undefined name 'syntax' Une exception de type 'MindTouch.Deki.Script.Runtime.DekiScriptUndefinedNameException' a été levée. (click for details)

     

    For an NTBR v7.5.1, it will take C:\Newtest Transaction Builder\ as its default Installation Directory.

    For an NTBR v7.6.0, it will take C:\Program Files (x86)\ip-label\ as its default Installation directory and C:\PROGRAMDATA\IP-LABEL\ as its Data directory.

    Attention! You need to note that "Data directory" is a path shared by NTBR and Robot. If your robot has another value as Data directory, it will be overwritten by this value : C:\PROGRAMDATA\IP-LABEL\ .n
