This is a silent installer and uninstaller for iGrafx 2006 and iGrafx 2007. More infos from here.

iGrafx 2006

First, you have to do an "Installation Point" somewhere on your server - run setup with /a parameter (setup /a). Then, install it on the clients.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>


        name="iGrafx 2006"

        <check type="uninstall" condition="exists" path="iGrafx 2006" />

<install cmd='msiexec /qn /i %SOFTWARE%\iGrafx\Installation_Point\setup.msi TRANSFORMS=%SOFTWARE%\iGrafx\Installation_Point\setup_de.mst ALLUSERS=1' />
<upgrade cmd='msiexec /qn /i %SOFTWARE%\iGrafx\Installation_Point\setup.msi TRANSFORMS=%SOFTWARE%\iGrafx\Installation_Point\setup_de.mst ALLUSERS=1' />
<remove cmd='MsiExec.exe /qn /X{D972F309-7376-4B25-10AA-04C80D11E2F3}' />



It may be that TRANSFORMS doesn't recognize the variable - in that case, replace it with a full path.

iGrafx 2007

iGrafx needs to be removed, and then, it has to be installed with a new license.

To roll a new version, it looks like it's best to:

  • make a new "Network installation" on the server - on a workstation start setup.exe program with /a parameter:
%SOFTWARE%\igrafx2007\setup.exe /a
  • point to a network share/folder
  • enter the validation keys

  • WPKG package needs to remove the previous or current version; then, it has to install a new version. It's made in a .bat file:
MsiExec.exe /qn /X{D972F309-7376-4B25-10AA-04C80D12E0F3}
msiexec /qn /i %SOFTWARE%\iGrafx2007\Network_Install\setup.msi TRANSFORMS=%SOFTWARE%\iGrafx2007\Network_Install\setup_de.mst ALLUSERS=1
