    Default [Solved] Beta Silent Install

    Using the command line parameter /verysilent and /components="main" I still get teatimer installed. Also, depending if there is an older version of spybot installed, the machine will reboot after the install.

    My question is, on the newest beta, how do you do a silent install without teatimer and preventing a reboot no mater the circumstance?

    Thank you in advance for any support.

    1. Use /tasks="!launchteatimer"
    2. Use /norestart

    The MSI installer is probably better suited though.

    In addition, when using:
    /verysilent /components="main" /tasks="!launchteatimer" /norestart

    It does everything I want it to, except, after adding your above suggestion a desktop icon is no longer created.

    Also, after a reboot, some computers complain about a missing .dll on startup. Any ideas?

    Well, you can specify more tasks, e.g. /tasks="!launchteatimer,desktopicon"

    That means to ignore the "launchteatimer" task, but to use (no ! in front of it) the "desktopicon" task.

    Other tasks are for example "launchsdhelper" or "quicklaunchicon".

    Which DLL?

    To not use /components="main" which I use to skip the automatic download of the includes file, which task would I use to skip that download?

    Also, when I come across the DLL file problem again I will snap a screen shot of it.

    Not using /components="main" means a full installation, and downloading the updates is part of a full installation. Updates are a component, not a task.

    Sure it is installed; "launchteatimer" prevents that it is launched at the end of the installation, and set up to run on system start. But what reason would you have to not install the file at all?

    I'm in the same boat... I have been using a script to install Spybot for a while and I never install TeaTimer. I wish NOT to install TeaTimer 'cause it nags a little too much for my liking. Below is my code...

    Code:
    "c:\spybotsd152.exe" /silent /components="main"
    Then, further down my batch file I have the following lines to remove unwanted icons...

    Code:
    IF EXIST "%HOMEPATH%\DESKTOP\SPYBOT - SEARCH & DESTROY.LNK" (DEL /Q "%HOMEPATH%\DESKTOP\SPYBOT - SEARCH & DESTROY.LNK") ELSE (ECHO LINK WAS NOT THERE TO BE DELETED)
    
    IF EXIST "%APPDATA%\MICROSOFT\INTERNET EXPLORER\QUICK LAUNCH\SPYBOT - SEARCH & DESTROY.LNK" (DEL /Q "%APPDATA%\MICROSOFT\INTERNET EXPLORER\QUICK LAUNCH\SPYBOT - SEARCH & DESTROY.LNK") ELSE (ECHO LINK WAS NOT THERE TO BE DELETED.)
    I'm sure there's a better way for dealing with unwanted icons but that's how I do it for now. I'd use the /noicon switch during the install but that would no doubt keep the icons from entering the start menu and I'd rather have those in place.

    Anyway, if there's a better way to do away with the icons on the desktop and quick launch, great! If not, no worries... My main issue is getting rid of TeaTimer without having to run a command to delete the reg key from the startup folder.
