Silent installation of avogadro on windows (windows 7)

I would like to make Avogadro available to students at Cardiff University
on our managed network computers. In order to do this, I need to develop a
silent installation. I am happy to accept all default settings, but not
placing icons on the users desktop. How would I go about this?

Thanks,

Niek

I’m not very knowledgable about Windows installers. What I can say, is that the Avogadro install is completely self-contained in its own directory (default: c:\Program Files\Avogadro). So you should be able to plop that directory into place via whatever mechanism you want.

This won’t adjust the registry for extensions like .cml, but IMHO that’s a more minor concern.

Hope that helps,

Dear Geoff,

Yes, knowing that the program is fully self-contained was all I needed to
know. Copying a previously installed version across onto a similar systems
essentially installs Avogadro.

Thanks!
