/I (Install) runs a quiet install (no dialogs/user interaction)

/U runs a quiet un-install (no dialogs/user interaction)

The following information is for those users who are curious and want to know, or wish to Uninstall The Magnifier & do not have the original distribution media.

There are 2 approaches to Setup, an IMG installer and the Windows Installer (MSI). The reason 2 installers are available is for flexibility and support purposes. Installing any product is a relatively easy process, but can become complicated as more & more features and capabilities are included. In any complicated sequential process, it is inevitable that some sequence or step is not handled properly. By using a second approach, a verifiable comparison based mechanism is created where a definitive end-result of files & settings can be attained, ensuring the integrity of the installation steps.

Post Installation information: IMGUTIL.EXE performs various post installation tasks. For reference, if the installation media has LICENSE.LIC in the same folder as SETUP.EXE, or in the \LICENSE folder, IMGUTIL will copy this into the installation folder (this is useful for evaluation and other types of licensing). If the installation media has a DK??????.ZIP file in the same folder as SETUP.EXE, or in the \DEVKIT folder, it will be copied to the installation folder.

For reference information, you can refer to the INSTALL.XML used by the IMG SETUP.EXE for all post installation operations. In Windows Installer (MSI) installs, these same actions occur.

SETUP.EXE will sense if The Magnifier is Installed or not. If The Magnifier is not installed, then Install must be checked to Install the The Magnifier software. If The Magnifier is already installed, you may Un-Install by selecting the Un-Install option and selecting OK throughout the following screens.
