PureEdge Viewer has been superseded by Lotus Forms Viewer.

Silent installer for PureEdge Viewer. http://www.e-publishing.af.mil/viewerdownload.asp

[edit] PureEdge Viewer 6.5 Installer

This installer uses InstallShield. You need to first create a silent installer script by running the following command:

PEViewer650DODJ12.exe /s /a /r /f1C:\setup.iss

This creates the silent installer answer script in C:\setup.iss

I've also added an install line for unzipping all of the forms to the All Users Desktop. You can remove this line and the "7zip" depends line, if this step is not needed.

[edit] Silent Uninstall

The uninstaller will not run silently. The only way to silence it is patching the uninstaller executable to bypass the message boxes. Here is a Perl script that will apply the appropriate patches.

silence.pl:

#!/bin/perl
 
use warnings;
use strict;
 
# Command arguments
$#ARGV == 0 or die "Usage:\n$0 <file>\n";
 
# Open and validate file
open my $fh, '+<', $ARGV[0] or die $!;
seek $fh, 0, 2;
if (tell $fh != 56320) {
    close $fh;
    die "File size does not look right.\n";
}
 
# Disable first message box, "Are you sure you want to uninstall..."
seek $fh, 0x2A03, 0;
print $fh "\x90" x 20;
 
seek $fh, 0x2A1D, 0;
print $fh "\x90" x 9;
 
# Disable second message box, "Uninstall completed..."
seek $fh, 0x2CE0, 0;
print $fh "\x90" x 22;
 
print "File patched successfully.\n";
close $fh;
0;
