How to install the ICAM client software in silent mode

Silent-mode installation is a way of setting installation configurations only once and then using that configurations to duplicate the installation on multiple client machines.

During a silent mode installation, the installation program reads the settings for your configuration from an msi file created prior to the installation.

The following describes how to install the ICAM client software silently.

    msiexec /quiet /I
