If I recall correctly, the installation comes in the form of an MSI.

MSI's can be installed from a batch script by running:

msiexec /i <path to SVS MSI file> /qb!

The control of installation features can probably be handled with a command line property setting, but I don't happen to have an SVS MSI handy to check this. Perhaps it is covered in the documentation?

if not a batch, i can use the msi silent install method you described..  But will this install the Admin gui?  anyway I can specify to add it, ?

The way that MSI dialogs work is that they set internal properties which you can duplicate in a silent install by setting these properties on the command line. Unfortunately I will not be in a position to check the MSI dialogs and find the appropriate property to set until I return from holiday next week.  I assume it's not mentioned in any of the SVS client documentation?

If you can post the URL of the client download you are using, I may be able to check it sooner.

OK, to install the admin tools, try this syntax:

msiexec /i <path to SVS MSI file> INSTALL_ADMIN=1 /qb!
