Silent install for activeTCL 8.7?

Posted by citizenkahn@gmail.com on 2018-09-27 14:36

Hi,

Is there a new set of silent install params similar to the old 8.6.4.1 ones for the ActiveTcl installer?

The chocolatey ActiveTcl package stopped working when activState took down 8.6.4.1 installer from its site (probably Sept 2018). I tried uplifting the choco packages to the new installer but haven't yet figured out how to get autohotkey to run in the choco context and install tcl.

Is there an archived version of 8.6.4.1?
Is there a new secret silent install param?
Does the for pay edition have a silent install?

Thanks

Peter

The new installers do not support a totally silent installation.

8.6.4.1 and other old versions are only available with paid annual subscriptions for Business Edition.

Since you've been using chocolatey, you may not have reviewed the current license terms for Community Edition.

Repeatable, silent, installations are frequently associated with Production use cases, so do look at which entities can use Community Edition versions in Production cases.

Thanks that answers all my questions. If I want to use an unintended install then I'll need to shift to the paid version or build from source myself. Either seems a viable option. Thanks.
