@Rick - How can I install this silently? I tried using qn or qb switch but it will not install. I'm using win7 x64. Thanks

vmware-lite.msi SERIALNUMBER=12345-12345-12345-12345-12345 DESKTOP_SHORTCUT=1 EULAS_AGREED=1 AUTOSOFTWAREUPDATE=1 /qr /norestart

 

That works perfect for me...

Regards... ;-)

Could you make a tool to run at post-install to make the installed one become lite? (preferably with optional features). This could be easier for you to make it compatible with future versions.

Thanks in advance.

 

PS: A GUI based one would be nice but there's no need to use GUI if your Batch Script's syntax-and-use is embedded on itself. I suggest to use a switch (for example "-?") to request the documentation, like DOS commands do.

PS2: This is not my native language… please excuse my bad english.
