How to: Run a Silent Installation

Speech Server 2007

This content is no longer actively maintained. It is provided as is, for anyone who may still be using these technologies, with no warranties or claims of accuracy with regard to the most recent product version or service release.

A silent, or unattended, installation enables you to install Speech Server from the command line. You can install all components at once or declare the components individually for a selected installation.

However, running the Speech Server installer from the command line is recommended only for advanced users. Users who perform a silent installation imply that they, and any user on whose behalf they install the software, understand all necessary setup requirements and have read and agreed to the End-User License Agreement (EULA).

Before performing a silent installation, ensure that your computer has met all hardware and software prerequisites listed in Speech Server Requirements.

Speech Server installation components include:

  • Speech Server Components (SERVER)
  • Developer Tools (DEVTOOLS)
  • Administrative Tools (ADMIN)
  • Documentation (DOCS)
  • Data Processing Utilities (DATAPROCESS)

A silent installation, which checks and enforces dependencies, can include any or all of these features. If a dependency is not met, the silent installation does not succeed. A silent installation does not, however, enforce feature-level dependencies. Therefore, to install a supported configuration, an administrator who runs a silent installation must be aware of the dependent features for each feature.

There is one dependency:

  • The DEVTOOLS feature depends on the SERVER and ADMIN features. Therefore, /ADDLOCAL DEVTOOLS,SERVER,ADMIN installs correctly, but /ADDLOCAL DEVTOOLS,ADMIN or /ADDLOCAL DEVTOOLS,SERVER results in failure or unsupported configurations.

You run a silent installation with the /passive or /quiet parameter. The only difference in these parameters is that /passive displays a progress bar on your screen during the installation, while /quiet displays nothing. The following procedures use the /passive parameter, but the /quiet parameter can be used in its place.

  1. Open a command prompt window.

  2. Type setup /passive /ADDLOCAL ALL.

  1. Click Start, and then click Run.

  2. In the Run dialog box, type cmd, and then click OK.

  3. In the command prompt window, change the directory to the drive that contains the Speech Server??DVD.

  4. At the command prompt, type setup /passive /ADDLOCAL COMPONENT,COMPONENT,....

  5. Use the following values in place of COMPONENT to declare the components you want to install. Use commas with no spaces as separators. All components are case-sensitive.

    • SERVER - Core software that provides speech recognition, speech output, and management of telephony sessions.
    • DEVTOOLS - Tools used within Visual Studio 2005 to develop and debug speech applications. This feature cannot be installed without the Server Components and the Administrative Tools features.
    • ADMIN - Administrator Console and other administrative tools for Office Communications Server 2007 Speech Server.
    • DOCS - Product documentation for Office Communications Server 2007 Speech Server.
    • DATAPROCESS - Tools used to process Office Communications Server 2007 Speech Server log data.

  1. Click Start, and then click Run.

  2. In the Run dialog box, type cmd, and then click OK.

  3. In the command prompt window, change the directory to the drive that contains the Speech Server DVD.

  4. At the command prompt, type Setup.exe /uninstall, and then press ENTER.
