Scripted Install for Rhino V3 and Flamingo 1.1

Rhino 3.0 and Flamingo 1.1 installers accept the following command-line options:

  • /autoinstall - Tells the installer to run automatically without asking any questions.
  • /key=[cd-key] - [cd-key] is the CD-Key for the installation. Use this to install as a standalone node. The CD-Key can be one of two formats: XXXXYYYYZZZZ or XXXX-YYYY-ZZZZ
  • /workgroup_node - Install Rhino as a workgroup node. This option takes precedence over the /key option.

The Rhino installer accepts three additional options:

  • /path=[installpath] - [installpath] is the fully qualified destination path for the installation. Must be surrounded by quotes if the path contians spaces. (Rhino installer only - Flamingo always installs in the Plug-ins folder under the Rhino install folder)
  • /language_start=[languagename] - [languagename] is the English name of the language that Rhino will start in when first launched. The names that are recognized are English, Polish, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Czech, Chinese-Simplified, Chinese-Traditional, Korean, and Japanese. If this parameter is missing, the starting language will be English.
  • /languages=[languagname,languagename,…] - Include one or more language names (in English) from the above list, separated by commas. The support files for running in those languages will be installed. The language specified in /language_start should be included. If this parameter is missing, only English will be installed.Example: /languages=“English,Chinese-Traditional”
