To install the software as a silent install

Our Installers use NSIS (Nullsoft Scriptable Install System) which is a professional open source system to create Windows installers. It is designed to be as small and flexible as possible and is therefore very suitable for internet distribution.

The assumption is that the ViewPoint installer is stored in the temp directory. To find your temp folder type %temp% into windows search bar or cortana record the address

  1. Go back to windows search\cortana and type CMD
  2. Right click and run as Administrator
  3. In the window change directory to c: i.e type CD C:\
  4. Type the location of the ViewPoint installer and /S (ensure you use CAPS) i.e. C:\Users\YourLaptopName\AppData\Local\Temp\setup.vpp5.16.0.3.exe /S


To uninstall the software silently 

Once installed the ViewPoint folder resides in C:\Program Files (x86)\IML\ViewPoint

To silently uninstall the software 

  1. Go back to windows search\cortana and type CMD
  2. Right click and run as Administrator
  3. In the window change directory to c: i.e type CD C:\Program Files (x86)\IML\ViewPoint
  4. Then type Uninstall.exe /S
