Citrix Silent Install

Posted on  by admin


You want to perform a silent installation of the CodeTwo Signatures Add-in for Outlook for your users without using Group Policy Objects (GPO).

After performing a silent install of a Citrix Provisioning client, subsequent upgrades using the Upgrade Wizard fail because the client fails to reboot. The following two command line switches are required to uninstall Citrix Workspace app: /silent /uninstall. The /noreboot parameter is not needed during a silent installation according to the Citrix documentation. Installation dependencies: No; Other dependencies: No; Reboot required: Yes (for certain components such as Single Sign-on, /includeSSON).

If you want to install the CodeTwo Signatures Add-in for Outlook for a group of users or all users in your organization at once, it is recommended to deploy the add-in via GPO. If, for some reason, you cannot use the GPO method, you can use the msiexec command instead.

Things to keep in mind while using msiexec:

  • If you install the CodeTwo Signatures Add-in for Outlook while Outlook is running, the add-in will be launched as soon as the user restarts Outlook.
  • If you uninstall the CodeTwo Signatures Add-in for Outlook while Outlook is running, the uninstall process will take place immediately and Outlook will restart automatically.
  • Installing the add-in by using the MSI file (no matter if you deploy it via GPO or msiexec) means that your users will not have the add-in updated automatically. If possible, it is recommended to use the manual deployment method.
  • You need to launch the Command Prompt / PowerShell as current user (local admin rights are not required to install the add-in). Running the msiexec command from another user profile (for example, by using run as administrator option to start the PowerShell console) doesn’t let you install the add-in correctly.
