Print Audit Secure Client Deployment

Print Audit Secure Client Deployment (Applies to version 1.1.0 and up)

The Print Audit Secure Client can be deployed using one of two options:

  1. using the set up file.
  2. using MSI packages extracted from the set up file.

Deployment with Setup file.

The Secure Client can be deployed using the setup file downloaded from the Print Audit site.


Secure Client Setup Command line usage:

-s - Run the install silently.

-e - Extract the MSI files.

-l<path> - Log the install to <path>. Enclosed in quotes

-u<URL> - Secure web service URL. Enclose in quotes. Required for silent installs.

-? - Displays help.


Example usage:

SecureClientSetup.exe -s -u”http://localhost/pasecure/webservices/”

Installs the Secure Client in silient mode (no user interaction required) where “http://localhost/pasecure/webservices/” is the URL to the Print Audit Secure Server webservices. Note: the double quotes around the URL are required and there is no space between -u and the URL parameter. The "-u" must be used with "-s".

Running the SecureSetup.exe with the above parameters is applicable to both new installations and upgrading older Secure Client software.


Deployment with MSI packages.

To create MSI packages for deployment:

From a command prompt, run the command

SecureClientSetup -e

to extract the separate MSI packages for 64 and 32 bit Windows.


New Installs

msiexec /i <path to msi> ALLUSERS=1 REINSTALLMODE=vomus

where <path to msi> is the path to the MSI file.



To install silently (no user interaction required), append the following to the end of the above command:

/qn PASWEB_URL="<URL to web service>"

where <URL to web service> is the URL of the Print Audit Server web service URL.


NOTE: double quotes around the parameter are required.


Upgrades of Existing Installations

To upgrade existing installation of the Secure Client:

msiexec /i "<path to msi>" ALLUSERS=1 REINSTALL=ALL REINSTALLMODE=vomus MSIENFORCEUPGRACEOMPONENTRULES=1

where <path to msi> is the path to the MSI file


To install silently (no user interaction required), append the following to the end of the above command:

/qn PASWEB_URL="<URL to web service>"

where <URL to web service> is the URL of the Print Audit Server web service URL.


NOTE: double quotes around the parameter are required.

ADDITIONAL NOTE: custom modifications of MSI packages using MSI editing tools (such as Orca) are not supported directly by Print Audit.
