    We have virtualized our build agents and have a step (provisioning) where we automatically install the software needed on the agents when they are created. In order to do this, we need to run the installer in silent mode. When I try to install the TestStudio_Runtime_2015_3_1429_1.msi using the /quiet switch, the product opens up a web page in the account used to install it, which doesn't have a desktop session. Is there a way to suppress this webpage launch?

    Hello Rory,

    In theory it should be possible. Our installer is a .msi file. You should be able to use Microsoft's MSIEXEC command line tool, with correct command line parameters to do a silent install.

    DISCLAIMER: we do not officially support this. If you can get it to work then great. If not we're unable to guide you on how to make it work.

    Thank you for your understanding.
