PRELIMINARY STEPS

1. Click here to download the .INF file and place it on the desired target local folder of the designated machine. This file includes the following default variables:

[Setup]
Dir=C:\Dualog

[Services]
Dualog Drive=1
Dualog Protect=1

Note:

  • 1 = you want to install the product; 0 = you do NOT want to install the product
  • You can amend the value, depending on which service you would like to install, and then save the .INF file again.
  • Dir refers to the directory where the Digital Platform service(s) will be installed.

2. Place the "DualogClientInstaller.exe” that has been downloaded from https://apps.dualog.com on a local directory of the designated machine

3. Open the Command prompt (CMD) and browse to the local directory where the .INF file and DualogClientInstaller.exe have been installed

4. Type the following command line and hit enter:

DualogClientInstaller.exe /VERYSILENT /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES /NORESTART /LOADINF="<path\optionsfile>"
 
Example (If both files are placed in C:\dualog):
DualogClientInstaller.exe /VERYSILENT /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES /NORESTART /LOADINF="C:\dualog\install.inf"
 
 5. The installation will run silently in the background
