Installing Seagull drivers in silent/ automated mode

Overview

The Seagull Driver Wizard v7.2 and higher supports a command line interface that allows you to easily install and remove printer drivers via command line parameters.

The Seagull Driver Wizard supports inline commands, as well as batch files with multiple commands.

Tip: Installing Authenticode signature prior to Seagull Driver installation so all drivers signed by Seagull install without the security prompts on any computer on that domain.
