#1 PSPad 'silent install' documentation

Posted by: dapsp | Date: 2013-03-10 15:17 | IP: IP Logged

Is there any link to a up to date "official" documentation on silent install for pspad?

I've found the following options in the pspad forum and other forums

pspad457inst_en.exe /VERYSILENT /NORESTART /COMPONENTS="!babylon-toolbar,!pspad-toolbar" /TASKS="multiuser,contextmenu,icons,txt"

but I'm searching for options to install pspad in a given language and to select the components, directory, tasks, language etc. as used in the install dialogs.

Which of the following steps can be configured with silent install and where are the params documented?

1. License Agreement
2. Select Destination Location
3. Select Components
4. Select Start Menu Folder
5. Select Additional Tasks

Best regards

PSPad uses InnoSetup compiler.
All available option you can find here:
There is one special switch /nobundle, with prevent start bundled software loader. But the same functionality has /silet or /verysilent switch. If you will use it, bundled software launcher will be skipped. I don't want install anything without user mind.

Toolbar component switch from your example are nonsence.

Usefull switches for you:
/GROUP="Start menu folder name"
/TYPE=installation type name
/COMPONENTS="comma separated list of component names"
/TASKS="comma separated list of task names"


Components list:
main - basic PSPad editor files (must be installed)
context - code clip files
syntax - syntax definition files
convert - user convertor files
templates - new file templates
script - scripts for scripting support
openssl - open SSL libraries for FTPS
lang - additional language files (english file is installed always)

Tasks list:
portable - install only with no associations, start menu, ...
contextmenu - integrate PSPad into Explorer context menu
icons - links on desktop and quick launch
txt - register pspad as editor for TXT

pspad_inst.exe /verysilent /norestart /dir="C:\Programs\PSPad" /group="Editor PSPad" /tasks="icons,txt" /components="context,syntax,script,openssl"

Do not use the task "portable" together with "contextmenu", "icons", or "txt"!
The task "portable" seems to disable the other tasks.

If you want to use portable application, you usually don't want to integrate it into Windows.
