What is the installation switch for running a silent install of the DYMO Label software in Windows?

 
 
The Instructions for silent installations are located below for Version 7 and Version 8 DYMO Label software.
 
DYMO Label v.8 (versions 8.6 and later)
  1. Download the DYMO Label software installer.
    • To download the DYMO Label software installer, click here to be redirected to the Drivers and Downloads section
  2. Click Start, select Run, enter CMD, and click OK.
  3. At the command prompt, change to the directory where the DYMO Label software installer is located
  4. A silent installation of Dymo Label is:
    DLS8Setup.8.x.exe /S /v/qn
Here is a breakdown of the paramenters:
/S - disables InstallShield's bootstrapper UI
/V - passes parameters attached to it to the msiexec engine, so in this case MSI will receive /qn to work with, which is a set for quiet install. No space is needed between /V and its params. If installation requires reboot, the computer will be rebooted automatically and after reboot is complete setup will resume automatically. To avoid automatic reboot, provide /norestart parameter to MSI. If there are multiple parameters to be passed to MSI, they should be quoted, e.g.
DLS8Setup.8.x.exe /S /V"/qn /norestart"
 

DYMO Label v.8 (versions 8.5.4 and earlier)
  1. Download the DYMO Label software installer.

  3. At the command prompt, change to the directory where the DYMO Label software installer is located
  4. Enter the name of the DYMO Label software installer and add the appropriate switch command and press Enter. DYMO Label version 8 supports the following:
    • /P (printer drivers only)
    • /D (supported by NSIS for output directory /D=C:\temp (for instance) Note: it must be the last command-line parameter)
    • /S ( for silent install/uninstall, to uninstall need to use the uninstall.exe file in the DYMO Label folder)
DYMO Label Software Version 7
  1. Download the DYMO Label software installer.
    • To download the DYMO Label software installer, click here to be redirected to the Drivers and Downloads section.
  2. Click Start, select Run, enter CMD, and click OK.
  3. At the command prompt, change to the directory where the DYMO Label software installer is located
  4. Enter the name of the DYMO Label software installer, without the .exe extension, add a /s switch and press Enter.
    • For example, if the name of the DYMO Label Software installer is WIN_DLS77.exe, the command option to enter is WIN_DLS77 /s

Note:
  • You will be prompted to connect the LabelWriter for new installations.
  • The installation will be completely silent if you are upgrading the DYMO Label Software and the LabelWriter is connected.
