Scripting installation of Rhino and Flamingo

Rhino and Flamingo installers are scriptable. You can create shortcuts to simplify installation of Rhino and Flamingo from the network.

Rhino and Flamingo installers accept the following command-line options:

/autoinstall

Tells the installer to run automatically without asking any questions.

/key=[cd-key]

[cd-key] is the CD-Key for the installation. Use this to install as a standalone node. The CD-Key can be one of two formats: XXXXYYYYZZZZ or XXXX-YYYY-ZZZZ

/workgroup_node

Install Rhino as a workgroup node. This option takes precedence over the /key option.

The Rhino installer accepts three additional options:

/path=[installpath]

[installpath] is the fully qualified destination path for the installation. Must be surrounded by quotes if the path contians spaces. (Rhino installer only - Flamingo always installs in the Plug-ins folder under the Rhino install folder)

/language_start=[languagename]

[languagename] is the English name of the language that Rhino will start in when first launched. The names that are recognized are English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Czech, and Japanese

If this parameter is missing, the starting language will be English

/languages=[languagname,languagename,...]

Include one or more English language names from the above list with no spaces. The support files for running in those languages will be installed. The language specified in /language_start should be included.

If this parameter is missing, only English will be installed.
