    Good afternoon! 

    We're looking to use Fiddler for troubleshooting on-demand and want to be able to do some automated install/uninstall pushes.  Are there any silent or unattended options that can be used with this installer?  Or perhaps an MSI package rather than the provided EXE?  And once it's installed, is there a way to automatically configure some general parameters, like disabling the autocheck for updates and preventing the autoload of the website on first run as it's inaccessible from our environment anyhow?  Thank you for your assistance!!  :)

    Hello, Dorian--

    Fiddler2Setup.exe can be launched with a /S switch (case-sensitive) to install in silent mode. However, it sounds like your goals go beyond a silent installation.

    The settings you've described can be set via registry keys; you can configure the settings as you want then look at HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Fiddler2 for the values you want; you could export a .REG file and then import it on the client computers.

    Having said that, depending on your needs, using FiddlerCap or building a custom application atop FiddlerCore may better suit your organization's goals.
