To do a silent installation of VP Agent:

  1. Create a temp folder under C:\.
  2. Copy and extract the VP Agent MSI installer into c:\temp. Make sure you have noted the correct folder location and MSI package name, pay attention to extension names.

    For example, if your system has already hidden the extension name, and you rename the installer as agent.msi, the actual name will be "agent.msi.msi", which will cause a failure.

  3. Run the command prompt with an administrator account.
  4. Ensure that the Windows system does not have any existing VP Agent.
  5. Execute silent installation and enable the logging function by adding "/L*v <Log location>". Below is a sample:

    msiexec /i c:\temp\Agent-Windows-11.0.0-173.x86_64.msi /qn /L*v c:\install_log.txt

    It should generate installation logs in install_log.txt located under c:\. Just in case any issue occurs during the installation, we can trace the reason from this log file.

  6. Check from Add or Remove Programs to confirm that the VP Agent has been installed.
