Re: FAQ(23): How do I unpack SoftPaqs after they are downloaded​?

You can unpack a SoftPaq by running it with a few command line switches.  To do this, open a Windows command box and refer to the following information:

Unpacking a SoftPaq file

Sp#####.exe –pdf –f<path> -s

 

Where

SP####.exe is the Softpaq to unpack.

-pdf is a run time switch that overrides the build parameters.

-f<Path> is a run time switch that overrides the default path set at build time.

-s instructs the package to unpack in silent mode skipping the welcome, license and directory screens.

EXAMPLE:

At the command box prompt (with Administrator rights to prevent access issues) go to the directory where the SoftPaq is and type the following:

 

sp59909.exe -pdf -fC:\SWSetup\sp59909 -s
