4. Problems using Unattended Client Setup

Unfortunately the supplied documentation (Readme.htm) is faulty. To enable apropriate operation please use the following revised guideline.

Unattended Client Setup
This type of installation can only be performed from a server on which the program has previously been installed. It allows client installation without any intermediate dialogue, i.e. the user is not required to enter any sort of input. To do so you only have to start the setup with the option /S. Additionally you can set the following options:
