Using command line parameters like the ones seen below, scripts can be built to install components of the BarTender Application Suite.

The linked white paper for performing a command line silent install is geared for the new version, 2019. Specifically, Appendix A only lists three choices while the previous version, 2016, listed many more which are now no longer documented.

Hello, how can i customize the silent setup to have a specific edition and the Seagull license server installed? Is it possible to record a type installation, then to have a file that you can include when you launch the silent installation? Thanks
