The Verba msi installers files can be started from the command line with additional parameters. The installers can be started the following way:

msiexec /i VerbaRecording.msi [logging setting] [/quiet] [verba parameters]

Logging setting

Loggin can be added by the /L parameter, plus the letters which specify the required information. For example /LE means logging the errors only, or /LEI means logging the errors and the status messages. For Verba, the recommended setting is /L*V. After the logging setting, a file name also has to be specified for the output, for example "/L*V installer.log". The following table describes the available options:

LetterLog entries
VVerbose output
OOut-of-disk-space messages
IStatus messages
CInitial UI parameters
EAll error messages
WNon-fatal warnings
AStartup of actions
RAction-specific records
MOut-of-memory or fatal exit information
UUser requests
PTerminal properties
XExtra debugging information.
*Wildcard for adding all parameters, except the V and X.
+Append to existing file
!Flush each line to the log

Quiet Mode

Quiet mode enables the installation of the Verba software with a single command, without using the GUI. In this case, all settings going to be set based on the provided parameters.

If quiet mode is used, the SKIPSQLSEQUENCE=1 parameter is mandatory!
