This is a silent installer for Maxima.

Maxima is a CAS (computer algebra system) for symbolic mathematics.

        name="Maxima 5.14.0"
        <check type="uninstall" condition="exists" path="Maxima 5.14.0" />
        <upgrade cmd="%SOFTWARE%\maxima-5.14.0a.exe /SILENT /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES" />
        <install cmd="%SOFTWARE%\maxima-5.14.0a.exe /SILENT /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES" />
        <remove cmd="%PROGRAMFILES%\maxima\uninst\unins000.exe /SILENT" />

Hints: If there is a new version, every occurrence of the version number has to be adjusted. You can add the following switches for an individual installation:

  • /VERYSILENT instead of /SILENT to prevent users from aborting install (you can do the same for the uninstall program)
  • /LANG=de for installation language (insert a valid language code for your language)
  • /DIR=%PROGRAMFILES%\Maxima\ if you don't want Maxima to be installed into a folder containing the version number
  • /GROUP=Math\Maxima to put the start menu group in a subfolder (and to rename it)
  • /MERGETASKS=!desktopicon if you don't want the wxMaxima desktop icon to be installed
