The silent install option is not working. When I run the command nvda_2014.2.exe /S the license agreement pops up and requires that you click accept before contiuning the installation.
The text was updated successfully, but these errors were encountered:

While --install does work, we need two things for this to be useful to most:
Document this, perhaps in a section of the User Guide regarding deployment; and
Provide a command line option to prevent starting the new copy after installation; i.e. it should just exit. See this thread for the original discussion.

Hi just been pointed here after raising a ticket for quirky behaviour on auto updating in next. I think, from the forgoing about exiting and the oddities i and other get, seemingly randomly, this updat is being affected by something sent to the installer in auto, or requested updates.
Have a look at the ticket for more info on this. 4787 is the ticket.

Merge branch 't4206' into next. Incubates #4206
--install again starts NVDA after installation by default. --install-silent should be used to install it silently (doesn't start NVDA after installation).
--start-after-install has been left in this branch for compatibility reasons.

What I cannot understand though is the way some machines were working as they used to and others did not. Surely as you say, this needs to be specified either in a command line or via some form of script when the file is run. My experiences show a very muddled situation on the original alterations, like it being silent but restarting and not actually running the update till switched into focus and then getting stuck in the bleeping routine until you do a restart, apart from the one i originally got where it updated non silently but did not restart afterwards with no prompts at all, and no way to apparently control it.
If was not for the fact that one person with windows 7 and one with 8 also had the issue, I was quite prepared for it to be an xp thing, hence the new ticket etc.
I'll wait for the download to become available and run each machine as is and see what happens.
I'll report back.

This has now worked on all machines, including the Windows 7 one that I have here.
I did have to force focus on the prompt for press a key on one machine, but that happens sometimes in any case.
