The silent installation feature lets users install QuarkXPress on their computers over a network without having to follow step-by-step instructions. This feature is useful for large group installations when performing manual installations is cumbersome.

Preparing for silent installation: Windows

To enable Windows users to perform a silent installation on their computers, an administrator must make the following modifications:

2.Open the “silent.bat” file in a text editor and make sure the path of the “setup.xml” file is in the first line as follows: ‘[network path of setup.exe file]’ /s /v’/q ’

3.Share the folder that contains the installer and the “setup.xml” file with users who are licensed to install QuarkXPress.
