Direct9.0c – Unattended (Silent) Installation

Michael Khanin Michael Khanin Profile: Michael Khanin

I’ve asked by one of companies, where i provide an IT consulting services, how to install directx on client’s computers unattended?

Equally, on internet existed a lot of articles about how to do this. Who use an old dxsetup.exe file, who try to edit an exe file in HEX-Editor and then use switch OPK . Also, admins use other tricks, likes an AutomatIT or similar products. Just one consider i can’t understand :), why nobody tries to read a HELP?
By going to the http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb219742.aspx you can find, black on white, how to install directx in unattended mode. All you have to do, is to add the switch “/silent“!

Admins, I’m also VERY lazy admin, but reading a HELP save your time 🙂
