The silent installation can be used to install OCAD or a Service Update without interacting with the installer. The software is installed automatically. The silent installation can be used for OCAD 11.5.7 or newer.

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.
