    Hi guys,

    When deploying the MapInfo 2019 installer using SCCM with a silent install, are there options to create desktop shortcuts as part of the install process?

    Thanks in advance.

    Tim

    Hi Tim,

    The following parameters can be added to your silent install command to create Start Menu shortcuts:

    MPRO=True creates the MapInfo Pro shortcut in the Start menu and sets the default file
    association of registered MapInfo Pro file types such as workspace (*.wor) or table (*.tab) with
    MapInfo Pro.

    or

    MVWR=True creates the MapInfo Viewer shortcut in the Start menu. It also sets the default file
    association of registered MapInfo Pro file types such as workspace (*.wor) or table (*.tab) with
    the new MapInfo Viewer (subscription) if the MPRO parameter above is not set to True.

    For a full list of the parameters that can be used refer to the "Silent Installation Procedures" within the MapInfoProInstallGuide.pdf located in the Documentation folder.
