Running Command Line or Silent Installations

Oracle Smart View for Office can be installed from the command line. Additionally, administrators can enable silent installations—installations that do not require settings to be specified each time—for Smart View and Smart View extensions. The silent installation command can be included in scripts to automate installation.


Silent installations are only supported for admin users.

Use the options in Table 2-3 to install Smart View from the command line and for silent installations.
