With each new version of Logger Pro for Windows, we create a silent version of our installer. In Logger Pro 3.8.4 and later, this is an MSI file that lets you push the software to multiple computers easily. If you set up a script to call a batch file or the MSI directly, the installer runs unattended. The only command that is needed is to open the installer file, and allow it to run with administrator privileges. Because of the complexity of installing custom Windows USB drivers, we strongly recommend that you use our silent installer which has been thoroughly tested. We recommend that you do NOT create your own MSI or other variations of the Logger Pro installer.
This method has been very popular with IT managers. The silent installer is not included on the Logger Pro CD, but is available for download upon request. You can either contact our Tech Suport staff directly, or customers in the US and Canada can create an account on our web site to download the Logger Pro installer any time or email the links to students as needed. Free to people who already own Logger Pro at:
Customers outside the US and Canada, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for instructions on how to access the files.
The downloaded package is a zip file containing an MSI installer, a batch file, the bluetooth drivers (needed if you are using wireless) and a silent uninstall utility (the silent install cannot "upgrade" previous installs). Run the batch file from the administrator's command shell on a target machine to silently install Logger Pro or customize your own script using the supplied MSI file.
This install method assumes that you already have QuickTime installed. If you require Quicktime, see quicktime.apple.com for downloadable installers.
