Installation modes

The default mode for the installer is the graphical user interface mode. However, in cases where a graphics display is not available, the Foglight installer can be started in command-line mode by using the console mode or silent mode.

Console mode

In console mode, the install instructions are in text format, but otherwise are the same as the graphical user interface install.

To execute the console mode, type the following command:

Foglight_Evolve-x_x_x-install_windows-x86_64.exe -i console

 

Silent mode

In silent mode, a properties file is used to feed in the installation parameters. The file consists of a list of key-value pairs, which are described in the following table.

To use a specific properties file in silent mode, append the following option:

The installer loads the specified properties file. When the file name and installer prefix are the same, the installer uses the properties automatically.

The following table lists the properties available for configuring a silent installation, and their default values.
