Silent and unattended install package for AMD Catalyst Drivers

Created: 26 Oct 2012 | 1 comment

Greetings

I am trying to create a silent and unattended software delivery package in CMS 7.1 that will install the latest (12.1) AMD Catalyst video drivers, also preferably with updates disabled. I am having a heck of a time trying to find any information on how to do this. I have looked at some of the switches when performing either a InstallManagerApp.exe /? or ATISetup.exe -?. Seems that any of my attempts just give me a failure. For instance, right now I am trying the following command using InstallManagerApp.exe as the installation file –

InstallManagerApp.exe /UNATTENDED_INSTALLInstallManagerApp.exe /UNATTENDED_INSTALL:"%~dp0Packages\Drivers" /AUTOACCEPT_ALL /ON_REBOOT_MESSAGE:NO /FORCE_CLOSE_WHEN_DONE /FORCE_HIDE_FIRST_RUN

I just get a failure code when trying to do a quick delivery of this package. I have tried similar attempts using ATISetup.exe as the installation file. For instance, I have tried the following however still get the install GUI when running the package on a machine:

ATISetup.exe -Noui -Install -Output

Anyone have any success with creating a AMD Catalyst software delivery package that is unattended? I would be greatful to get what installation file and command you had used to get this to work

Thanks

Can you use 7-zip or similar to unzip the package and extract base msi's?

I was looking at a Dell install  package for ATI drivers and that seems to use a -mup switch with a mup.xml answer file. Download it from the Precision Workstation M4600 windows 7 x64 drivers page and have a look.
