Deploying TextExpander onto Windows￼
How to Deploy TextExpander onto Windows
The TextExpander for Windows installer (found here – https://TextExpander.com/download/) contains MSI’s for both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows, as well as the VC redistributable which TextExpander depends on.
To get these:
- Create a folder in the same directory as the TextExpander installer
- Open a command prompt
- cd to the folder in step 1.
- Run: TextExpanderSetup-x.y.z /layout NAMEOFFOLDER
You can then use the MSI’s in your deployment tool.
You should also be able to set up your deployment to run the appropriate redistributable (VC_redist.x64.exe or VC_redist.x86.exe) with the command line parameters “/install /passive /norestart”, which will install it in an unattended fashion.
It is also possible to disable update checking by adding a DWORD under one of the following registry keys:
The DWORD needs to have the following attributes:
After that, users will be unable to update their TextExpander applications.
