The following information is for those users who are curious and want to know, or wish to Uninstall My-T-Mouse & 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 My-T-Mouse is Installed or not. If My-T-Mouse is not installed, then Install must be checked to Install the My-T-Mouse software. If My-T-Mouse is already installed, you may Un-Install by selecting the Un-Install option and selecting OK throughout the following screens.

The following outlines relevant information about the MSI (Microsoft Installer) packages, and command line options to msiexec to manage installation with these files

The MSI files are essentially databases of information used by the Windows Installer to install the files and setup a system. The executable to use is "msiexec.exe" and any appropriate command line switches. In general, if you double click on an MSI file, Windows launches msiexec with the /i install option (e.g. "msiexec /i prodver_target.msi").

For some basic, frequently asked for options, here are a few that can be used with the standard IMG MSI install files (these switches are not case sensitive):

In these examples, the msi file should be replaced with the msi file you want to operate on

msiexec /i mts178_2000xp.msi (This installs My-T-Soft 1.78 (using the user interface))

msiexec /i /qn mts178_2000xp.msi (This silently installs My-T-Soft 1.78 (with NO user interface))

msiexec /x /qn mts178_2000xp.msi (This silently un-installs My-T-Soft 1.78 (with NO user interface))

msiexec /a mts178_2000xp.msi /qn TARGETDIR="C:\Documents and Settings\Full User\Desktop\Test" (This silently installs My-T-Soft 1.78 (with NO user interface) to a different target directory (for testing, etc.))

Further notes on command line switches:

/a = Administrative install - allows use of TARGETDIR override

/i = standard install

/x = standard un-install

/q? = user interface options

/qn = Displays no user interface.

/qb = Displays a basic user interface.

/qr = Displays a reduced user interface with a modal dialog box displayed at the end of the installation.

/qf = Displays the full user interface with a modal dialog box displayed at the end.

/qn+ = Displays no user interface, except for a modal dialog box displayed at the end.

/qb+ = Displays a basic user interface with a modal dialog box displayed at the end.

/qb- = Displays a basic user interface with no modal dialog boxes.

For further info on msiexec.exe, refer to Microsoft's documentation.
