Silent install for all users

Issue Summary

how to set up a silent installation for all users

Troubleshooting Questions

  • I can do a silent installation with the /S command line option, but the installation is done in the current user’s environment. By adding the /D= option I can change the path, but there’s no shortcut to create…


Silent install like : START “” /WAIT /B %~dp0R%local-6.7.2-windows.exe /S /D=“C:\progra~1\LocalWP”

System Details

  • Which version of Local is being used? 6.7.2

  • What Operating System (OS) and OS version is being used?

    • Windows 11 Professional

I’d be curious about your use case? Are you managing a bunch of computers and automating the installation of it? The reason I’m asking is that we don’t get much feedback on how easy or hard the installation process of Local is in an automated fashion.

As for your specific question – I’m not as well versed in Windows cli, but as far as Local is concerned, we build the app using Electron Builder. According to this GH issue:

I think the flag you want is /allusers.

Can you give that a try and let us know how it goes?

Thank you for this information
LocalWP will be used in student teaching rooms. That’s why I need to automate deployment.
I’ll give it a try and get back to you.
