You can try e.g.:
Code: Select all
xampp-win32-1.7.2.exe -dC:\ -s1 -spauto

You can , as a better alternative to the installer exe version, use the
xampp-win32-1.7.4-VC6.zip
or the
xampp-win32-1.7.4-VC6.7z
from here:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/xampp/f ... ows/1.7.4/

You can download and install 7zip from here if you haven't already, also there may be more help on their web site:
http://www.7-zip.org

Then you can use this command line example for a silent install:
Code: Select all
C:\Programfolder\7-Zip\7z.exe x xampp-win32-1.7.4-VC6.zip -oC:\targetfolder
Note: "-oC:\targetfolder" must be written with no spaces.
Use your own path to where you installed 7zip and the target folder.

You can use
Code: Select all
7z.exe -h
for help with all the switches/commands.

Please let me know back if you had success using this, or not.

Thanks and good luck. :)

Hi,

I have the same problem like factorial. Want to make a silent installation of XAMPP 1.7.7 on Win7 x86 Pro but the old parameters doesn't work anymore.
I'm not able to use 7zip or other tools on the pc's where I want to install XAMPP.
I hope someone can help me with a solution for the self-extracting exe file (xampp-win32-1.7.7.exe).

Greetings

I don't know the details of your situation, BUT you might want to look at this tool -

http://www.ftp-unzip.com/ZipDeploy/

If no-one beats me to it, I'll look at your original request this evening after work.

Good Luck

Hi JonB,
thanks for your answer.
Unfortunately I can't use extra tools like "ZipDeploy" on the PC's whre I want to install XAMPP.
So I think the only way for me is to use the .exe file of XAMPP.

The command "-dc:\ -s2 -spauto" worked fine for XAMPP 1.7.3 on Win7 x86. I can't figure out what happend with these parameters. I even tried the other parameters in all combinations.
I suggest the first request after the language makes the problem. Perhaps there is a way to set a default language?

Or is there any way to write an answer file for the installation and attach it as a parameter?


Greetings and many thanks for your time

I am not sure about the older versions but the newer ones use Nullsoft Installer as far as I know. See section 3.2 for command line options (Note: The switches are case sensitive): http://nsis.sourceforge.net/Docs/Chapter3.html#3.2
