Question

Do I need to create a separate SilentInstall-SPB.INI to install Hotfixes (ISRs)?


Answer

No. With the introduction of the Silent Installation method in 17.2 (and future versions) installation of both the base release as well as any updates can be completed with a single INI file. 


Question

Is there a way to silently uninstall the OrCAD products?


Answer

Yes. Assuming that the products were installed silently, modify your silentInstall.INI file for the which reads “OnMaintenance=MODIFY” so that it reads “OnMaintenance=REMOVEALL” and the installation program becomes an uninstallation program.
