Issue/Introduction

Cannot figure out how to run the DevTest Workstation 10.6 with a silent install.

Have attempted to modify the fields seen in the documentation: Refer to section "Installing DevTest Solutions with a Silent Install" in the documentation of the DevTest release you are running.

However, this documentation is for when you want to install all server components, not just the Workstation. Could I get some help or be provided with a response.varfile that only installs the Workstation?

Cause

N/A

Environment

All supported DevTest releases.

Resolution

Below is an example response.varfile for only installing the Service Virtualization Workstation on Windows.  This example is DevTest 10.6.0. 

# install4j response file for DevTest Solutions 10.6.0 (build 10.6.0.1011)

# If installing SERVER COMPONENTS, we strongly recommend that the lisaDataDir is BLANK or is the same as the install directory.
# If installing WORKSTATION ONLY, the lisaDataDir is used to define the data directory location.
# When an administrator is installing WORKSTATION ONLY on behalf of another user, it is recommended to use %userprofile%\\DevTest or ~/DevTest. Note, the end user needs to have write permission for the data directory.
# Workstation data directory components: _local.properties, logging.properties, de-identify.xml, hotdeploy, library for customizations, projects with assets, example folders
