I found some basic intructions on how to install CityEngine silently, however I still need more info.
We want to be able to install CityEngine using an application called TEM (aka. BigFix). I have been able to do so with ArcGIS 10.3 so I assumed that the parameters would be the same.
Here is what I am doing for ArcGIS:
msiexec /i <setup location>\setup.msi ADDLOCAL=ArcMap,ArcCatalog,Python,GeoStatisticalAnalyst,SpatialAnalyst ESRI_LICENSE_HOST=SERVER_NAME SOFTWARE_CLASS=Viewer SEAT_PREFERENCE=Float INSTALLDIR1=C:\python DESKTOP_CONFIG=TRUE /qb
Following those same guidlines, here is what I have for CityEngine:
msiexec /i <setup location>\setup.msi ESRI_LICENSE_HOST=server_name SEAT_PREFERENCE=Float /qb
City engine does install when I pass this command line. However, upon launch I am given a message saying that I need to run the CityEngine administrator and set my license. I need to be able to pass these parameters so that I can push the install out to my labs and not need to have someone go and touch each machine.
Two years and no replies.
I am trying to do the exact same thing and I can not find ANYTHING on setting the lic server when installing city engine so I do not have to touch 50-60 machines.
please accept our apologies for the late reply on this. i just confirmed with the installation team and unfortunately silent authorization (= running the license administrator utility) is not implemented for windows yet (it is available on linux). i've logged a feature request for CityEngine 2018.0.
sorry about the mixed news & kind regards,
