Silent installation of QT 4.6.2 on Windows 10



  • Hello all,

    I am building a script for my client that needs to include installation of the Qt Framework (version 4.6.2 commercial).
    My goal is to create an automatic script that will silently install the framework (with hard-coded credentials).
    Currently I am not able to find an explanation of of how to do silent install of the Qt Framework.
    I am interested to know if such option is possible, and if so, what are the correct flags.

    Regards,
    Ilya,

    4.6.2? Are you sure? That was released when dinosaurs still roamed the planet :-)

    There are silent install scripts for Qt (check out @benlau 's splendid package https://github.com/benlau/qtci) but these require much more modern Qt releases.

    Since you say you have a commercial package - ask Qt Company directly. Maybe they'll have some script ready for you.

    My goal is to create an automatic script that will silently install the framework (with hard-coded credentials).

    If I may: why? You only need to install Qt on development machines (used by developers). They are certainly capable of installing it themselves. For deployment, you only need to deploy Qt libs together with your .exe. windeployqt can help with that (but, again, not with Qt 4).

    Thank you for the fast and informative replay. This is a small project that we support and we are trying to change as little as possible. It totally slipped from my mind that for deployment machines, I just need the DLLs. Will definitely check that!
