This section provides useful information for IT administrators wishing to deploy DreamCalc installations on
Installation using a Batch Script
It is possible to install DreamCalc and register license details using a batch script.
"C:\Program Files\DreamCalc DC4G\dreamcalc.exe" /register "Shermer High School" 0123-4567-89AB-CDEF
The first line launches the installer with the '/SILENT' option causing confirmation dialogs to be
The installer will deploy DreamCalc to a default location in the "Program Files" directory. The actual
location will depend on the edition of software you are installing and may vary in the future. You should
confirm the actual location yourself. Alternatively, you may define the target directory yourself from the
command line using the /DIR="x:\dirname" option. For example:
The second line in the example script invokes the DreamCalc executable with a '/register' option followed by
your license name and key. Your license name will typically include spaces and should be enclosed in quotes. If
the license details are valid, DreamCalc will silently register the software. If the license details are
invalid, however, registration will fail silently, so you should check that the process works by examining the
DreamCalc About Box after a test installation.
Disk Image Deployment
It is also possible to install DreamCalc on a source machine and to create a disk image for deployment to
other multiple workstations. In this case, you should install DreamCalc normally and input the license key prior to creating the disk image.
