The klmcp.ini file is used for customization and can be generated in advance using the following parameters to the installer:

klmcodec505.exe -MakeUnattended

Note: you can skip /LoadInf parameter and klmcp.ini file generation if you want to install K-Lite Codec Pack with default options - i.e., use these install/upgrade commands:

<install cmd='"%SOFTWARE%\k-lite\klmcodec505.exe" /verysilent /norestart' />

<upgrade cmd='"%SOFTWARE%\k-lite\klmcodec505.exe" /verysilent /norestart' />
