    Installing the YuJa Software Capture Silently

    Use the following steps to complete silent installation of the YuJa Software Capture.

    1. Navigate to the file on your computer, typically in the Downloads folder.
    2. Right click on the Software Capture application file. Choose Properties.
    3. Copy the file location from the Properties window by selecting the location and entering CTRL-C.
    4. Go to your computer’s Search field and enter cmd; this will open a Command Prompt.
    5. Right click on the Command Prompt application and choose Run as Administrator.
    6. On the first line of text where it reads C:\Windows\system32> type in: cd. Then copy the file location. Example: C:\WINDOWS\system32>cd C:\Users\Downloads.
    7. On the next line, after the user’s location, type in: YuJa-Software-Capture.exe /s /v”/qn”. This command essentially runs the installer without the installer UI. Example: CMD Prompt>YuJa-Software-Capture.exe /s /v”/qn” . Note: To install to a specific location, add the INSTALLDIR option. Example: CMD Prompt> YuJa-Software-Capture.exe /s /v”/qn INSTALLDIR=C:\install-location” This will install the Software Capture application on your destination computer.

    To deploy this on multiple machines, you will need to create a batch script with this command and deploy the batch script as per your normal upgrade and installation process.
