Using the MSI options

You can use the command 'msiexec' to run the Wordwall installer MSI with additional options. For example:-

msiexec /i InstallWordwall_3_X_Y.msi /qn KEY=abcdef123 LOCALE=2057

The following section describes the different flags and their purpose.


Installer name

The '/i' flag must be followed by the name of the installer. This will be change depending on the the version number you are working with. Replace X and Y so that it corresponds to the file you downloaded.


Silent installation

Use the '/q' or '/qn' flag for a silent installation, i.e. no dialog screens are shown. Note that 'KEY' must be specified pr else the software will not start correctly.


Licence key

If you have a licence key or invitation code that has been issued by us directly, it can be set with the 'KEY' option.

If you have a Sahara Lynx installation present on your computer, you do not need to set this option as the authorization will be picked up from Lynx.


Language and region

Use the 'LOCALE' option to set language/region. The locale ID follows the Microsoft LCID system.

If you omit this parameter it will default to UK English (2057).

The following LCID's are supported under all licence agreements.

English UK = 2057, English US = 1033, English Canada = 4105, Welsh = 1106

We also support a number of non-English translations. The availability of these is dependent on your licencing agreement. Please contact us to be put in touch with your nearest distributor or for more information.


Error logging

If your installer is failing and you can't figure it out, then run the installation with logging flags and then contact us with the log file attached to an email and we'll see what advice we can offer.

To collect an error log add the flag '/lv' followed by an output file name. For example:-

msiexec /i InstallWordwall_3_*_*.msi /qn KEY=abcdef123 LOCALE=2057 /lv MyErrorLog.txt
