  • When entering customer data, please type in no-nonsense values! The information is used to simplify traceability for efficient support. You will only need to enter the information once since it is shared between all Naviate installations and will be filled in beforehand the next time you run a Naviate product installation.

The NaviateIFCx installation can be run silently from the command line. The command line syntax is as follows:

msiexec /I “<msi>” <params> /qb


COMPANY=”company”                    - Company name
NAME=”name”                                 - User/admin name
EMAIL=email                                    - User/admin e-mail
PHONE=”number”                            - User/admin phone number

UPDATEMODE=0|2                          - Disables (0) or enables (2) the UpdateManager. Default is 2.



The COMPANY, NAME, EMAIL, and PHONE parameters are, except when updating, mandatory.

In order to enforce proper installation of the Naviate products a number of custom system and configuration tests are run. When running manual installation you will receive a message when any of the tests fails. When running scripted installation, messages are written to the log file if logging is active (see the Microsoft documentation for msiexec.exe) and the installation will generally terminate. The following custom test(s) are performed:

  • Parameter check: Proper values for the parameters listed above has to be specified either from the registry for an existing installation (when updating), or from the command line, or from the user interface. If the parameter set is found incomplete, the installation will will display an error message and terminate. If this situation occurs during scripted installation, the installation will terminate.
