    Note:

    • You may also choose a language from the available language list, however, this is used only if the serial key is multi-lingual.

    step-6

    The package files are created and saved at the location specified in Step 4.

  7. Test the silent deployment of the TCS package by performing the following steps:

    a. Launch the Command Prompt as an Administrator.

    b. Enter the path including the Build folder of the created package. For example, if the package is saved on the Desktop, then specify the path as:  

      C:\Users\[username]\Desktop\package folder\Build

    c. Type the following command to deploy the package silently:

       msiexec.exe /i  packagename.msi  /quiet

    You can monitor the installation process by opening the Task Manager. In the Task Manager, three processes of "msiexec.exe" can be found running--one under the [System] tab and two under the [username] tab.

    Installation will complete once both the process of “msiexec.exe” under the [username] tab have finished.

    Additional notes:

    You can also deploy all packages in the Exceptions folder by performing the following steps:

    a. Launch the Command Prompt as an Administrator.

    b.  Enter the path till the Build folder of the created package. For example, if the package is saved on the Desktop, then specify the path as:   

               C:\Users\[username]\Desktop\TCS2019\Exception

    c. Type the following command to deploy the exceptions silently:         

               ExceptionDeployer --workflow=install --mode=post
