  11. 11. Step4- Switches to be used in Smart Upgrade Kit Switches for Lotus notes Kit Argument Definition /s Instructs setup.exe to run in silent mode. /v Passes arguments to MSIexec.exe. Used with command lines for MSIexec.exe; for example, /v qb+ would pass the qb+ command to the MSI installer. The commands are surrounded by quotation marks. There is no space between the /v and the quotation marks. -d Specifies that installation files are extracted to a temporary directory, from which they are deleted when the update is complete. -d must be first in the series of arguments. This argument is used when using a installation kit that is packaged in a single .exe file. -s Makes the unpacking of the detached kit on the user's computer silent and uses the default locations for the files it will extract. -a Passes all arguments to the file that is being launched. For example, -a used in launching a single file installation kit would pass further arguments to the installer application. Example: -s -a /s /v /quiet passes the arguments /s /v /quiet to setup.exe Switches for Windows ® Installer.
