Silent install of WinMerge 2.16.4

I just recently downloaded the latest version of WinMerge (2.16.4). Can anyone provide guidance on doing a silent install?

I've tried using the /silent parameter on the command line but no joy. Is it even possible to install WinMerge silently now?

Thanks.

this command is your friend: WinMerge-2.16.4-Setup.exe /?
this is what I use "%~dp0WinMerge-2.16.4-Setup.exe" /SILENT /LOADINF="%~dp0config.inf" /NORESTART
but I have a problem with SCCM (installation using the SYSTEM account). It returns an error:
Internal error : Failed to expand shell folder constant "userdesktop"
I will create another thread for that.

JFYI if anybody runs into the same problem:

Tried that, but it displayed a dialog asking whether I wanto to install for all users or "just me". Which seems to happen before the main installer starts up.

Solution: add /ALLUSERS switch (as documented by running the setup.exe with /? ) - add /VERYSILENT and you should be fine.
