Deploy with MSI

Use these procedures to install Reflection from a command line with MSI.

To customize your installation, specify Windows Installer properties on the command line or pass them in a transform file. For a list of public properties that are standard to the Microsoft Windows Installer, see the Modify Setup Properties pane in the Attachmate Customization Tool, or refer to the Microsoft Windows Installer Guide.

If you want to create a custom (non-default) user data location that will be used by all installed Reflection products, specify the product-specific property WRQ_USERDIR. This property affects only those applications whose default user data directory is %personalfolder%\Attachmate\Reflection. Reflection applications that use this default data location include: Reflection Workspace, Reflection FTP Client, Reflection Kerberos Manager, Reflection Key Agent, Reflection IBM Printer, and Reflection X (legacy). Reflection X Advantage does not use this user data location.

To deploy Reflection “out-of-the-box” directly with MSI

  • At a command prompt on a test workstation, change to the directory in which the .msi file resides and enter:

    msiexec /i path_to_administrative_installation_point\yourVersion.msi

    where yourVersion.msi is the specific version of the reflection MSI that you downloaded (for example, SE11R1c.msi).

To deploy Reflection and a transform directly with MSI

  • At a command prompt, enter:

    msiexec /i path_to_administrative_installation_point\yourVersion.msi TRANSFORMS= yourCustomInstall.mst

    where yourVersion.msi is the specific version of the Reflection MSI that you downloaded (for example, SE11R1c.msi).
