Installer Program Options


This page provides information on how to silently install Enscape. A silent installation allows you to complete Enscape installation without user input during the process using a predefined set of options. To set up a silent installation follow the instructions below.

Install Enscape on other machines

To install Enscape on multiple machines, prepare a config.xml file with the following content and adjust it as needed.

<Value Name="LOCALE" DataType="value">de</Value>
<Value Name="STDROOT" DataType="value">/Library/Chaos/Enscape</Value>
<Value Name="INSTALL_ARCHICAD" DataType="value">1</Value>
<Value Name="INSTALL_RHINO" DataType="value">1</Value>
<Value Name="INSTALL_SKETCHUP" DataType="value">1</Value>
<Value Name="INSTALL_VECTORWORKS" DataType="value">1</Value>

Mount the installation .dmg file to a directory of your choice from the command prompt with the following commands:

hdiutil attach Enscape-2.0.0.dmg -mountpoint ./enscape_mountpoint

Run the installation file from the command prompt with the following arguments:

./enscape_mountpoint/Enscape\ -gui=0 -acceptEULA -configFile="config.xml" -quiet=1

The -acceptEULA argument will accept the EULA. If you do not specify the -acceptEULA option, the installer will terminate because the EULA was not accepted.

Silently uninstall Enscape

To silently uninstall Enscape, run the installation file from an Administrator command prompt with the following arguments:

./enscape_mountpoint/Enscape\ -gui=0 -auto -uninstallApp="Enscape" -log="/Library/Chaos/Enscape/uninstall/install.log"

Once you are done with the installation/uninstallation, unmount the drive:

hdiutil detach ./enscape_mountpoint
