Automate installation on Windows
You can streamline the installation of PaperCut NG/MF or a particular PaperCut NG/MF component for automating deployment. For example, when installing on many secondary print servers, or installing the User Client locally on many desktops (although the recommended installation procedure is the “zero install” strategy - see User Client).
The installer command-line options provide the ability to pre-select the installer options; there is no need to click through them when installing. The options in the table below are valid for the Windows installers having those options available for PaperCut NG/MF (the main installer), the User Client and the card wizard.
