What command line options are available to me during manual connector id install?





Possible Resolution(s):

Command line options:

display help: /? -- display help dialog

silent (un)install: /s

passive (un)install: /passive -- only display progress dialogs, no user interaction

mostly silent (un)install: /q /quiet /qn --- this will still pop up the self-extracting steps. No way around this without creating our own SFX archiver.

uninstall: REMOVE=TRUE

uninstall: /x or -x (added to support people used to MSI packages)

logging: /l="C:\logfile.txt" -- full path required

hubaddress: HUBADDRESS=<address>

user group: USERGROUP=usergroup

machine group: MACHINEGROUP=machinegroup

specify install directory: INSTALLDIR=<path> - overrides the default install directory.


for silent install with hub address:

install.exe /s

for silent uninstall with logging

install.exe /s REMOVE=TRUE /l="C:\logfile.txt"

for interactive install with defined hubaddress



For GPO MSI Install

The MSI should only be used for GPO installs. If used outside of a GPO install, it will not uninstall itself cleanly. However, it is still possible to install/uninstall using the MSI outside of Group Policy. The registries should be used for group policy installs -


Under registry key:

(For 32-bit OS) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Liquidware Labs\Connector ID

(For 64-bit OS) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Liquidware Labs\ConnectorID


Add the string value:

hubAddress - Assigned hub
GROUP - Machine group
USERGROUP - User group

To disable network stats in verision 6.1.3+, add registry entry of type DWORD:

Value: 1


Using Administrative CMD:

REG ADD "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Liquidware Labs\ConnectorID /v MACHINEGROUPS" /t REG_SZ /d "Name of Group" /f

Using psexex for remotely running this command:

Individual Machine:

psexec \\ipaddress -u username -p password reg add "hklm\system\currentcontrolset\control\terminal server" /f /v fDenyTSConnections /t REG_DWORD /d 0

Group of Machines:

Create a bat file with this line in it:

REG ADD "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Liquidware Labs\ConnectorID /v MACHINEGROUPS" /t REG_SZ /d "Name of Group" /

psexec.exe @machineList.txt -u Domain\AdminAcct -s -d -n 10 -c -f  ChangeMachineGroup.bat

Alternatively use reg edit in a for loop:

for /f %a in ('type machines.txt') do @reg.exe add \\%a\HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\USBSTOR /v "Value name" /d "Data" /f
