Silent installation for Java Profiler

Postby altnex » Tue Dec 18, 2018 10:14 am


i am trying to install Java Profiler 2017.02 build 75 silently with installdir parameters but it doesnt work the way i want. The installation is quiet but the installdir is still C:\Program Files\ (default).
I have tried:

yourkit.exe /S /D=C:\foo\bar
yourkit.exe /S /NCRC /D=C:\foo\bar
yourkit.exe /S /Dir=C:\foo\bar
yourkit.exe /S INSTALLDIR=C:\foo\bar
... and much more ...

but nothing will work properly. With the 12.0.6 Version it worked perfectly fine:

yourkit.exe /S /D=C:\foo\bar

Did i miss something or is there a way to install it properly?

For what purpose do you need this functionality?

Silent install was never officially supported nor advertised. As I remember, we never made anything special to enable this mode nor to explicitly ban it. Anyway, we never promised it would work at all.

Technically, YourKit installer uses NSIS, and whether a silent install is available depends on whether corresponding version of NSIS supports it. Perhaps something has changed between NSIS versions used in installers of different YourKit versions.

Please also note that YourKit Java Profiler 2017 is no longer supported.
