How to deploy MS AutoRoute 2010. Single click installation required.
I have about 5 users and we possibly buy a few more licences of AutoRoute 2010

I would like to be able to just have a single click installation

How can I:
  • Set the Company Name rather be prompted for it
  • Set a standard Program Installation directory
  • Untick all the Live Toolbar and Bing Features
  • Leave the Click on Finish to show its installed
  • and also automatically agree to the license and also not prompt from the Registration

Is any of these doable
Hi rhorhara,

Welcome to the forum.

Q: Can AutoRoute 2010 or Streets & Trips 2010 be installed with a single click?
A: No

Q: Is there any options available to simplify the installation?
A: Yes, there are some 'silent install' command line parameters that can be used to make some of these choices automatic. You will still need to install the prerequisites prior to the install and manually enter the product key for each machine at the end.

PM me if you want all the nitty-gritty details on how this is done.

I might be answering my own question but you modify the setup_ar.ini file and this gives you a near enough simple click install


MainMSIArgs=/qb! REBOOT=ReallySuppress MEDIAPACKAGEPATH=\AutoRte\MSMap\

There are a few nitty gritty User Specific registry settings I need to clear out so PM sent
I have written the below script that automated the whole installation (we do have an enterprise copy of AutoRoute) but this may help
Rem Create Install_Temp Folder
if not exist c:\install_temp mkdir c:\install_temp
if not exist c:\install_temp\log mkdir c:\install_temp\log
rem Copy install to machine Via Robocopy
robocopy "\\servername\sharename\Autoroute 2010" "c:\install_temp\Autoroute 2010" /MIR /W:5 /R:5 /log:c:\install_temp\log\Autoroute2010.log
