If you have Wireshark users in your environment you could probably benefit from having the MSI installers for the 32-bit and 64-bit versions.

MSI installers can be used easily for distribution using systems like Configuration Manager, WDS or Group Policy.

You can get the MSI installer as a direct download or from our SourceForge project page.

Instructions

For full instructions on how to use MSI installations, you should take a look at our MSI installer guide here.

If you are unfamiliar with MSI silent installations, you can use the parameters as per below to push out a variety of different installations – great for Group Policy or Configuration Manager push outs.

If you want to run the MSI installers as completely silent, then you can use the following command:

msiexec.exe /i "MSIinstaller.msi" /q /norestart

If you want to run the MSI installers as automated but displayed to the end user, then you can use the following command:

msiexec.exe /i "MSIinstaller.msi" /passive /norestart

where:

  • msiexec.exe – this starts the MSI installer engine
  • /i – this tells the msiexec.exe to run an install
  • “MSIinstaller.msi” – filename of the MSI installer
  • /q – tells the msiexec.exe to run as silent
  • /passive – tells the msiexec.exe to run as automated but display to end user
  • /norestart – tells the msiexec.exe to not allow an automatic restart after installation completion
