In previous versions of Blackberry Desktop Manger, there was a file in the installation directory called 'install.txt.' In this file were parameters for the [INSTALL_OPTIONS] tag, which you could copy/paste into the setup.ini file in the install directory to customize your installation.
Desktop Software 6 does not have the 'install.ext' file, but it does have the setup.ini file. I tried adding my old [INSTALL_OPTIONS] tags to the new setup.ini file but they don't work. I ran the setup.exe file with the /? tag to see if I could get any insight on how to install silently. All this gives me is the following:
Command line parameters:
/L language ID
/S Hide initialization dialog. For silent mode use: /S /v /qn.
/V parameters to MsiExec.exe
/UA<url to InstMsiA.exe>
/UW<url to InstMsiW.exe>
/UM<url to msi package>
/US<url to lsScript.msi>
Do any of these command line parameters actually work? Nope.
I am trying to perform silent installations of Desktop Manager, which is something I had no problem doing with previous versions, but now I can no longer perform silent installations. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.

Ended up solving my own problem.
For those of you that want a completely silent unattended installation of desktop manager, just run the Blackberry Desktop Software.msi file with a /qn tag. Simple enough.

I know that the /qn allows for a silent install but is there a way to pass other parameters to the BlackBerry Desktop Software.msi program to for instance prevent the creation of a desktop icon? I believe that was a facility in an earlier release of the Blackberry Desktop install.
