license for machine and not user?

Post by Koda »

Hi

I am trying to install FileBot silent. With msiexec this is no problem.

But I have a problem with the license file. I can register it from the logged user with "filebot --license file.pem". But I don't know who the user is during the installation. Of course there is only one user working on the PC and the license is available.

Is there a way to copy the license file somehow into the installation directory so you don't have to activate it with "filebot --license", or are there other ways?

Thank you

Unfortunately, you'll have to call filebot --license as the user that is later going to call filebot. If you only have one user, then that should be a problem, because the user calling msiexec is also the user that's calling filebot. If you have multiple user accounts on your machine, then each of those users will have to call filebot --license once.

Hi

My idea was an unattended installation for the family. That would have been nice :) But of course I can do it once for each user
