Windows Silent Install


It is possible to install/uninstall DBeaver in silent mode using the Windows Installer command line parameters.
This might be beneficial for mass install automation (SSCM and other similar systems).


Command line parameters supported by DBeaver installer/uninstaller:

Parameter Description
/S Enables silent mode. Requires either /allusers or /currentuser. Case-sensitive.
/D=path Sets the installation directory. This parameter must be the last one used and is case-sensitive. No quotes needed.
/allusers Installs or uninstalls the software for all users. Case-insensitive.
/currentuser Installs or uninstalls the software for the current user only. Case-insensitive.

For install

To install DBeaver, navigate to the directory where the installer is located and append the desired parameters to the command:

For instance:

C:\Program Files\DBeaver> [parameters]

Note: To install with the /allusers parameter the current user must have the administrator's permission.

For uninstall

To uninstall DBeaver, use the Uninstaller.exe from the DBeaver directory with the required parameters:

For instance:

C:\Program Files\DBeaver>Uninstaller.exe [parameters]
