Hi All

I am trying to install Cura at a further education college and would like to use a software client to install it, for this is would need the silent install code. Does cura have one and does anyone know it?

Many thanks

    Hi Tom,

    I know this is rather a late reply, but I've been able to perform a silent install by running the exe file with a /S parameter on the end.

    I do however have another question that is related and hope that people will be able to help us here (sorry if this is a little bit of thread hijacking!)

    After I've performed the silent install, when the program runs for the first time it wants to run the First Run Wizard. I've found the .cura folder under c:users<username> and the config file within, but I'm wondering if there is anyway to setup the defaults for the program during the install?

    I can when deploying the software copy files into the relevant location if needed, but looking in the config file it seems to have hard coded certain paths to the current user, which isn't great for machines that will see many users.

    Is anyone able to provide help with this step?

    Just thought up an anternative way without modifiying Cura code.

    Cura also looks in:

    C:program files (x86)Cura_[any_version]

    For the preferences and current_profile ini files. So if you place files there, it will get copied as default for all users.
