Installing Appeon ActiveX control



Methods for installing Appeon ActiveX

Originally, there are two ways to install Appeon ActiveX. One way is Appeon ActiveX will be automatically downloaded to the client when you access the Web application with correct IE settings and user privilege. The other way to install Appeon ActiveX is manually download the ActiveX control to the client and

1. Double click the ax_install.msi file to install it or

2. Open the Command Prompt window and install it with the command line, for example, C:\ax_install.msi.  


Appeon command-line options

Starting from Appeon 6.1, Appeon provides the following command-line options to enable you silently install or uninstall Appeon ActiveX control.  Note those Appeon provided command-line options can be used together with the MSI options.






Uninstalls the Appeon ActiveX.



Silently executes the command.



Prompts the failure message. This option has to be used with -s. When the two options used together it means that prompt messages if there is any failure (such as errors and warnings) during the installation process of Appeon ActiveX control.



Reverses the old files. This option has to be used with -s.



Prints log file with a specified path and it is valid only when being used with -s (for example, C:\ax_install.msi OPTION="-s -l c:\test.log").

Following are some examples on how to use Appeon command-line options. You should execute these command lines in the Command Prompt window.

  1. Use Appeon command-line option to silently install the Appeon ActiveX control. With this command you will not see any interface that relates to install the ActiveX. However, MSI installer related user interface will be displayed though it does not require user interaction.

    C:\ax_install.msi OPTION="-s"

  2. Use Appeon command-line options to silently uninstall the Appeon ActiveX control. With this command you will not see any interface that relates to uninstall the ActiveX, however, MSI installer related user interface will be displayed though it does not require any user interaction.

    C:\ax_install.msi OPTION="-s -u"

  3. Use Appeon command-line option together with MSI command-line option to silently install the ActiveX control and also the MSI installer. With this command, the whole ActiveX package will be installed silently.

    C:\ax_install.msi /quiet /qn OPTION="-s"
