How to install PDF Architect silent using the web installer?

If you only need to install PDF Architect to a limited number of PC's and you don't want to use the PDF Architect MSI package, you can install PDF Architect silently using the Command Prompt.

  • Download the PDF Architect Installer from our website at: http://download.pdfforge.org/download/
    Make sure to select the version that fits your license. 
  • Run the Command Prompt as administrator in the folder where you saved the PDF Architect Installer.
  • To start the installation silent, type the name of the downloaded PDF Architect installer into the command prompt and add the parameter "/quiet"
    • Example Command: "PDF_Architect_6_Installer.exe /quiet 
  • Of course, you can add additional parameters to customize the installation to suit your needs
