Installing the Printer Silently

Scroll Prev Top Next More

The Raster Image Printer can be installed silently to multiple users on a network using Microsoft SCCM or a similar product with software push capability. For One Time and Subscription licenses this only installs the software on the computer, it does not activate the license on that computer. If you have a large number of users and need a pre-authorized installation, please contact PEERNET Sales for information on this type of custom install.

Deployment Requirements

Any PEERNET provided Run Command tools you may be using, or other custom programs or tools (and their requirements) used in the Run Commands in your conversion profile will also have to be included in your install or deployment scripts.

The printer driver depends on the Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime for Visual Studio 2017 and if you are using any Run Command tools from PEERNET, they require .NET Framework 4.8 be installed. Your installation software should already have the ability to detect and install these requirements. If it does not, start with the links below.

The redistributable for VS2017 and higher versions are available on the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Latest Supported Downloads page.

If you do not have .NET Framework 4.8 installed, you will need to download and install the .NET Framework 4.8 Runtime.

Command Line Syntax

Logging - /L=<Path to Log>

To create a log file when installing, use the /L parameter and pass in a full path to the name of a log file. Two files will be created, the log file specified, and another one using the same name with PEERNET.txt appended. The one ending in PEERNET.txt is a trace of what happens during the initial install setup script, including testing for system compatibility and pre-requisites, and going through the setup wizard. The base one is created by the installer during the actual install step after the setup wizard has gathered all of its information. Both log files can be used to troubleshoot install issues, especially when using the /S silent install parameter with SCCM or other push software.

Subscription License

pnrassubsetup_12.0.001.exe /L="C:\PEERNET\Setup.log"

One Time License

pnrasotsetup_12.0.001.exe /L="C:\PEERNET\Setup.log"

Silent install - /S

With the silent install command line parameter set, the entire installation will execute silently, without a user interface, or any user intervention. When any input is required on dialog boxes, the default values of dialog controls will be used.

Subscription License

pnrassubsetup_12.0.001.exe /S

One Time License

pnrasotsetup_12.0.001.exe /S

Silent uninstall - /S MODIFY=FALSE REMOVE=TRUE UNINSTALL=YES

Running the install with the /S when it is already installed will automatically remove the product. To force the install to always run an uninstall, as is needed with some SCCM and push software tools, add the MODIFY, REMOVE and UNINSTALL flags to the command line.

Subscription License

pnrassubsetup_12.0.001.exe /S MODIFY=FALSE REMOVE=TRUE UNINSTALL=YES

One Time License

pnrasotsetup_12.0.001.exe /S MODIFY=FALSE REMOVE=TRUE UNINSTALL=YES

Removing License Activations - DEACTIVATEUSER=TRUE|FALSE

Only valid with Subscription licenses and with an internet connection.

When uninstalling a Subscription license, you can automatically remove this user from your list of authenticated users, provided the computer has internet access and connect to the PEERNET licensing server. This is useful when transferring the subscription installation to another user, or moving the same user to a new computer.

If you are uninstalling and re-installing Raster Image Printer silently for the same user, and do not want to remove the authentication, pass in FALSE for this option. The default value for this is TRUE.

Subscription License - Remove user from authentication list

pnrassubsetup_12.0.001.exe /S DEACTIVATEUSER=TRUE

Hiding the Desktop Icons and Start Menu Shortcuts - SHOWUI=TRUE|FALSE

Only valid with Subscription licenses.

When installing a Subscription license across an organization, the IT department may not want the end users to be able to change the printer configuration. Desktop icons and start menu icons are normally created as part of the install. Passing in FALSE for the SHOWUI option will install the product but not create the icons and shortcuts. This is often used in conjunction with the CONFIGPRINTER, NOEDIT, NODASH, NOPMGR and NOPMGT options when Installing a Customized Printer.

Subscription License - Do not show desktop icons or start menu shortcuts

pnrassubsetup_12.0.001.exe /S SHOWUI=FALSE CONFIGPRINTER="C:\PEERNET\PrinterSettings.pnrasexport"

Hiding the License and Update Notifications - NOTIFYUI=TRUE|FALSE

Only valid with Subscription licenses and on Windows 10 and higher, Windows Server 2016 and higher.

On Windows 10 and higher, and Windows Server 2016 and higher, a notification component is installed as part of the software. This utility validates the license status and will show a popup, or toast, notification in the lower right corner when the subscription is close to its renew date, or if it has expired. Notifications are also shown if a newer version of the product is available to download.

Passing in FALSE for the NOTIFYUI option will install the product but not add the notification components.

Subscription License - Do not check for license and update notifications

pnrassubsetup_12.0.001.exe /S NOTIFYUI=FALSE

Hiding the Profile Editor - NOEDIT=TRUE

Only valid with Subscription licenses.

When installing a customized printer setup with a locked profile, you may not want the end users to be able to edit the locked profiles. Passing in TRUE for the NOEDIT option will install all of the product except the Profile Editor. The Edit Profile/Manage Profiles button on the Printing Preferences dialog will be hidden. This is often used in conjunction with the CONFIGPRINTER, SHOWUI, NODASH, NOMGR and NOPMGT options when Installing a Customized Printer.

Subscription License - Do not allow editing profiles from Printing Preferences

pnrassubsetup_12.0.001.exe /S SHOWUI=FALSE NOEDIT=TRUE CONFIGPRINTER="C:\PEERNET\PrinterSettings.pnrasexport"

Hiding the Profile Manager - NOMGR=TRUE

Only valid with Subscription licenses.

Passing TRUE for the NOMGR option when installing will exclude the Profile Manager from the install of the product. If the Dashboard is still included, clicking the Edit & Create Profiles tile will show a view stating the feature is disabled. This is often used in conjunction with the CONFIGPRINTER, SHOWUI, NODASH, NOEDIT, and NOPMGT options when Installing a Customized Printer.

Subscription License - Do not allow editing and creating profiles

pnrassubsetup_12.0.001.exe /S SHOWUI=FALSE NOMGR=TRUE CONFIGPRINTER="C:\PEERNET\PrinterSettings.pnrasexport"

Hiding the Print Management View - NOPMGT=TRUE

Only valid with Subscription licenses.

When installing a customized printer setup you may want to hide the Printer Management features in the dashboard. Passing in TRUE for the NOPMGT option will show a view stating the feature is disabled when the Mange Printers tile is selected on the Dashboard. This is often used in conjunction with the CONFIGPRINTER, SHOWUI, NOEDIT, NOMGR, and NODASH options when Installing a Customized Printer.

Subscription License - Do not allow print management

pnrassubsetup_12.0.001.exe /S NOPMGT=TRUE CONFIGPRINTER="C:\PEERNET\PrinterSettings.pnrasexport"

Hiding the Dashboard - NODASH=TRUE

Only valid with Subscription licenses.

When installing a customized printer setup you may want to hide the printer dashboard completely from your users to keep them from editing profiles or changing printer configurations. Passing in TRUE for the NODASH option to exclude the Dashboard from the install of the product. This also prevents the dashboard's desktop icons and shortcuts from being created as part of the install, even when SHOWUI is not used.. This is often used in conjunction with the CONFIGPRINTER, SHOWUI, NOEDIT, NOMGR, and NOPMGT options when Installing a Customized Printer.

Subscription License - Do not show desktop icons or start menu shortcuts

pnrassubsetup_12.0.001.exe /S SHOWUI=FALSE NODASH=TRUE CONFIGPRINTER="C:\PEERNET\PrinterSettings.pnrasexport"
