How to silently install the Parallels RDP Client

APPLIES TO:
  • Parallels Remote Application Server

Symptoms

Sometimes it is necessary to silently install the Parallels RDP client. This may be done using MSIEXEC and a series of parameters.

Resolution

A bat file may be created with the following content to install the RDP Client silently:

msiexec /qn /i 2xclient.msi DEFSETTINGS="2XSettings.2xc"

Some considerations for this process:

  • It is best to use the same case as the string might be case sensitive -There needs to be present installation of the 2XClient on the machine.

When MSIEXEC determines it needs to do a repair, the switches are not executed: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa367988(v=vs.85).aspx

As a result, if you are deploying this to a brand new machine, it will deploy silently with the config. If an install is present, some switches will be ignored tampering with the succesful deployment of the client.
