IssueSilent installation of Software token 3.0.6 components selectively
Administrator would like to install some of the software token components selectively. The installation guide does not describe the available options.

The information regarding silent installation has been added to Readme.pdf. RSA SecurID Software Token 3.0.6 is provided as a configurable Windows Installer MSI package (RSA SecurIDSoftware Token.msi) that you can use in interactive installations, silent installations, and Microsoft SystemsManagement Server (SMS) deployments. Use the Windows Installer command line (msiexec) if you need to customize the deployment. The following table lists the features available in the MSI package.

Sample Installation Command

In this example, you do not want end users to have access to the Administration Tool. In addition, the end users do not need the Netscape browser plug-in or Dial-Up Networking features. The following command uses the ADDLOCAL property to install only those components that the end users need. The /qn option installs the software silently. The /lv option logs the results of the installation. You must enter the ADDLOCAL property in uppercase and the feature names as shown. Replace pathname with the actual path to the MSI file.

msiexec /qn /i ?<pathname>\RSA SecurID Software Token.msi? /lv c:\install.log ADDLOCAL="SoftwareTokenAPI, SoftwareToken, SoftwareTokens.DB,Documentation,BrowserPlugins,IE_Plugin"


To retain the token:

C:\3.0.7>msiexec /qn /i "C:\3.0.7\RSA SecurID Software Token.msi" /lv c:\install.log ADDLOCAL=SoftwareTokenAPI,SoftwareToken,SoftwareTokens.DB,Documentation,BrowserPlugins,IE_Plugin SOFTWARETOKENDB_FOUND=1
