Coveo Enterprise Search - Run installer silently?

Is it possible to run the update/installer silently? The documentation provided here: https://onlinehelp.coveo.com/en/ces/7.0/administrator/installingcessilently.htm only covers fresh installs, from what I can see.

Being able to do the upgrade silently would greatly reduce the risk of us running this manually on every machine.

Thanks!

Hi,

To perform an update, you can use the same command without the installation variables that are only needed on the first install.

Example:

First install:

msiexec /i "C:\[FilePath]\Coveo Enterprise Search 7.0 x64 (nnnn).msi" /qn ADDLOCAL=BaseFeature,VCRedist,CESService,Admin,AdminService,CESConsole LOGONTYPE=account LOGONACCOUNT_DOMAIN=[domain] LOGONACCOUNT_USERNAME=[username] LOGONACCOUNT_PASSWORD=[password]

Upgrade:

msiexec /i "C:\[FilePath]\Coveo Enterprise Search 7.0 x64 (nnnn).msi" /qn

Does UAC still need to be disabled for the install to succeed?

Yes there is no change in behavior regarding UAC on an upgrade vs a first install
