PingPlotter Manual

Installer Options and MSI

Note: the information in this section is specific to the Windows version of PingPlotter.

The PingPlotter install is MSI-based, and wrapped with a bootstrap that helps do upgrades.

Normally, the best way to install PingPlotter is just to launch the installer by downloading and double-clicking.

In some cases, though (particularly for deployment to multiple computers), it may be helpful to change the way PingPlotter is installed.

The bootstrap has several options to extract the MSI, log the install to file, debug, etc. To see the options, launch the installer from a command line and pass it a /? parameter - this will list the parameters that can be used.
