DWG TrueView 2008 Silent Install          
Now that you have downloaded this beast, you may want to configure a silent install for it. You can do this using the same method as the Design Review 2008 Silent Install.

You can open this download using your favorite ZIP program. Extract all the files and the MSI file is there.

The string for your BAT or script file will be:

MSIEXEC /i "\\server\share\DWGVIEWR.msi" /l*v %temp%\DWGTrueView.log /qb!

NOTE: You may need to install other components prior to running this silent install. For example, without .NET 2.0, the DWG TrueView silent install will fail with an "Internal Error 2337". You can silently install .NET 2.0 with this string:

\\server\share\support\dotnetfx\dotnetfx.exe /q /c:"install /l /qn"

You can also run the setup process silently/passively by modifying the setup.ini provided with the install. Unzip the files then edit the line in setup.ini "UI_MODE=" and change it so that it reads "UI_MODE=SILENT" You can execute DWG True View just like the other CAD 08 products executing "setup.exe setup.ini" which will passively install all the pre-requisites and DWG True View.
