Appendix A Quick-reference topics

This appendix provides a synopsis of the following deployment topics:

What is the process for deploying the software?

What are the available command-line switches? What are the available public properties? What are the available features?

What is the process for deploying the software?

Here s an at-a-glance review of the deployment process for the CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X5:

  1. Read the specifications and the Readme file for the product, to make sure that your server and workstations are eligible for the software.
    • For information, see Chapter2.
  2. Create a server image of the software by using the Setup.exe file, and then customize the server image if desired.
    • For information, see Chapter3.
  3. Finalize the server image by doing the following:
    • Verify the security settings for the server. For information, see page 23.
    • Configure any necessary registry settings for the server image. For information, see page 23.
    • If desired, customize the workspaces on the image server. For information, seepage25.
    • Check for software updates, and apply them to the server image as necessary. For information, seepage48.
  4. Deploy the software from the server image to the workstations by using a command line (see Chapter 4) to provide either a pull installation scenario (see Chapter 5) or a push-installation scenario (see Chapter 6).
  5. Repair, modify, and update the installed software, as needed.
    • For information, see Chapter7.
  6. When a new version of the software is released, prepare for the upgrade by removing all existing installations of the software.

For information, see page 51.

What are the available command-line switches?

The following table lists the command-line switches that are compatible with CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X5.

Switch Effect
/a Creates or patches a server image. For more information, see How do I create the server image? On page 20 or How do I apply patches? On page 48.
/extract_all Extracts the files from a patch (or an electronic software download, or ESD ). For more information, see How do I apply a patch to the server image? On page 49.
/f Reinstalls the software. Its default parameters are oums. For more information, see What is the command-line syntax for repairing the software? On page 46.
/forcerestart Works the same as the public property REBOOT=Force. For information on this public property, see How do I specify whether to reboot after installation? On page 37.
/help Same as /?
/i Works with msiexec.exe and Setup.msi to install the software on the workstations. For more information, see Can I deploy the software by using the msiexec.exe file? on page 63.
/l Logs general information about the installation. The log file is created in the current user's temporary folder if a path and filename are not specified. For more information, see Do I want to create an installation log? On page 30.
/log Same as /l*
/norestart Works the same as the public property REBOOT=ReallySuppress. For information on this public property, see How do I specify whether to reboot after installation? On page 37.
/passive Same as /qb
/promptrestart

Works the same as the public property REBOOT=Suppress. For information on this public property, see How do I specify whether to reboot after installation? On page 37.
/q Sets the extent to which the user interface of the setup is displayed. For more information, see How much of the setup interface do I want users to see? On page 29.
/quiet Same as /qn
/s Silently applies and deploys a patch for the software. For more information, see How do I silently apply and deploy a patch? on page 50.
/uninstall Same as /x
/x Uninstalls the software from the workstation. For more information, see How do I remove the software by using a command line? On page 52.
/? Accesses help for the setup
   

What are the available public properties?

The following table lists the public properties that are compatible with CorelDRAW Graphics SuiteX5.

Property Description and values
ADDLOCAL Sets the specified feature or features to install on the workstations. Its value is the associated feature name, or names separated by commas. See How do I specify how features are installed? On page 33.
ADDSOURCE Sets the specified feature or features to run from the network. Its value is the associated feature name, or names separated by commas. See How do I specify how features are installed? On page 33.
ALLOW_PRODUCTUPDATES Specifies whether to allow for automatic product updates. Its value is 0 if you don t want automatic updates, or 1 if you do. See How do I specify whether to allow automatic updates? On page 36.
CHAINER_CMD Used with msiexec.exe to specify command-line switches. Its value is the list of switches (with each pair separated by a space). See Can I deploy the software by using the msiexec.exe file? On page 63.
CLIPARTSOURCEDIR Sets the server location of the extra content from the DVD. Its value is the path. See How do I specify where extra content is located on the server? On page 33.
IGNORE_LAUNCH_CONDITIONS

Installs the software regardless of whether its minimum system requirements (as listed


On page 11) are met. See How do I prevent the setup from checking the system requirements? On page 32.

INSTALLDIR Sets the destination of the installation files on the workstations. Its value is the path. It's a good idea to enter this value quotation mark, in case it contains spaces. See How do I customize the destination of the installation files? On page 33.
REBOOT Specifies whether to reboot after installation. Its value is Force (always prompts for a reboot), Suppress (reboots automatically), or ReallySuppress (suppresses all reboots and all reboot prompts, both during and after installation). See How do I specify whether to reboot after installation? On page 37.
REINSTALL

Reinstalls the specified feature or features. Its value is the associated feature name, or names separated by commas; the value ALL signals that you want to reinstall all features. See What is the command-line syntax for repairing the software? On page 46, or How do I deploy a patched


Server image to the workstations? On page 49.

REINSTALLMODE

Specifies the type of reinstallation to perform. Its values mirror those of the /f switch. See What is the command-line syntax for repairing the software? On page 46, or How do I deploy a patched


Server image to the workstations? On page 49. The REINSTALLMODE public property can also be used when installing the software to the workstations for the first time. However, it cannot be used when creating a server image.

REMOVE During reinstallation, used with the ADDLOCAL property or the ADDSOURCE property (or both) to remove the previously installed feature or features that you've specified. Its value is the associated feature name or names, separated by commas. See What is the command-line syntax for removing installed features? On page 47.
REMOVEUSERFILES During uninstallation, signals whether you want to remove user files. Its value is 0 if you don t want to remove user files, or 1 if you do. See How do I remove the software by using a command line? On page 52.
SERIALNUMBER Sets the serial number for the registration process. Its value is the serial number. See How do I specify customer information? On page 33.
TARGETDIR Specifies the destination of the installation files when creating a server image by using a /q switch in the command line. Its value is the path. It's a good idea to enter this value in quotation marks, in case it contains spaces. See page 29.
TRANSFORMS

Specifies a Microsoft transformation (MST) file to apply to the Setup.msi file. Its value is the path and filename. It's a good idea to enter this value in quotation marks, in case it contains spaces. See How do I apply MST files? on page 32. Note that if you want to apply an MST file to an MSI file other than Setup.msi, you must use the following syntax (where is the filename of the MSI file, not including its extension; and where is the filename of the MST file, including its


Extension): TRANSFORMS_="" If the MST file is not in the same folder as the MSI file, must specify the full path and filename of the MST file.

USERNAME Sets the user name for the registration process. Its value is the user name. It's a good idea to enter this value in quotation marks, in case it contains spaces. See How do I specify customer information? On page 33.

Remember that the correct syntax for a public property is the following:

=

Because spaces are used to separate command-line elements from each other, you must enter the value in quotation marks if it contains spaces. For information on assembling command lines, see Chapter 4.
