The silent installation can be used to install OCAD or a Service Update without interacting with the installer. The software is installed automatically.

First you have to create a new Batch-File (.bat). Simply right-click on the desktop and choose New --> Text Document Enter your filename and change the filename extension to .bat (e.g. CourseSetting.bat). Right-click on your new batch-file and click Edit. The Editor is shown.

If you want to install a new Service Update in silent mode, copy the following text into your Batch file:

  • Change the directory to the directory of the downloaded Service Update file (Note: NOT the OCAD directory).
  • Add /SILENT for your silent installation. If you replace /SILENT with /VERYSILENT the progress bar of the installation will also be hidden.
