The Installation Customization Tool is designed to be opened from a command line. However, you can create a desktop shortcut that opens this tool. This will save time when you are working with the tool.
NOTE:To start the Installation Customization Tool from a command line, change to the administrative installation point and enter:
<path_to_setup> \setup.exe /admin
To create a shortcut that opens the Installation Customization Tool
On your administrative installation point, right-click the setup.exe file, and choose.
Right-click the shortcut and choose.
In thebox, add the /admin option to the end of the command line. For example:
\\ myServer\adminInstallPoint \setup.exe /admin
CAUTION:Make sure that the path in thebox conforms to the Uniform Naming Convention (UNC) format and does not include drive letters. Drive letters can cause problems if you try to use the shortcut on other workstations.
Rename the shortcut and save it on the desktops of your workstation and the server you use for your administrative installation point.
To start the Installation Customization Tool, double-click the shortcut, and then in thedialog box, choose which mode you want to open.
