Running the Silent CONNX Client Installation Procedure

Conduct the following procedure to run a silent CONNX client installation on client computers. (See Creating the CONNX Client Installation Record File.)

To run a silent CONNX client installation

  1. Copy the shortcut you created from the network folder to a convenient location on the network.

  2. Click the Start button, and then point to Run. In the Open text box, type the following:

    N:\CNX\Setup.exe –s -f1N:\CNX\Setup.iss

    where N:\… represents the location in the network of the setup files.

Note: Make sure you type a "1" (one) and not an "L" (el) after "-f".



  1. Click the OK button

  2. Allow several minutes for the installation to complete.

  3. To verify installation of the silent client, click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then select Administrative Tools. Select Data Sources (ODBC), and then select the Drivers tab. CONNX and its current version number should be visible.
