I. INTRODUCTION

PURPOSE OF THIS README FILE


The Printing System Installer Customization Wizard enables an administrator to customize the printing system installer that comes with the product by presetting the options for installation in a response file. The customized installer is then ready for silent, unattended installation by end users.

A sample batch file 'Install.bat' is located in the directory with the customized printing system installer. It can be used as is or modified with run time customizations explained later in this document.

A log file is written to the Windows$ directory when customized printing system installer is created. The Windows$ directory is the directory where Windows was originally installed on the system.

The log file is the shortened name of the product with an .ini file extension. For example:

hplj####.ini

where #### is the number of the HP LaserJet product.

The same log file is created on the end user's system when they install using the customized printing system installer.

Log files are in English only.



NOTE: This application uses Version 2.0 of the Microsoft Windows Installer. If your system does not have version 2.0 installed, you must restart your system after running this application.

To check the version number, run msiexec.exe, in the Windows$\system directory.

End users who install the customized printing system installer must also restart their computers if they do not have version 2.0 of the Microsoft Windows Installer.

II. PRESELECTABLE OPTIONS


The Printing System Installer Customization Wizard describes the options that can be preselected during creation of the customized installer. The following options are available:

  • Installer language

  • Printer model*

  • Printer features that will be installed (drivers, users guides, extra software)*

  • Pre-configuration of drivers (if the selected drivers support pre-configuration)

  • Port selection*:

  • Existing client port (\\Server\share name)

  • Local port (LPT, USB and Others)

  • New TCP/IP port

  • New IPX port

  • Printer naming*

  • Default Printer and Default Driver*

  • Printer sharing and share name (only for Windows NT 4.0, 2000, and XP)*

  • Vended drivers (only for Windows NT4.0, 2000 and XP)*

  • Printer location and comment (only for Windows 2000 and Windows XP)*

*These items can also be changed each time the customized printing system installer is run, by changing the settings in the response file.

NOTE: Validation of values does not occur during customization. This enables a network administrator to create the installer without requiring that the end user be on the same network or environment as the administrator.

III. INSTALLATION SETTINGS


This section provides details for changing installation settings at run time.

BATCH-FILE COMMAND-LINE SETTINGS


When you perform a customized installation of the printing system, the batch file is created in the same directory as the customized printing system installer. If left unmodified, it is automatically used during a custom installation to install the printing system with default settings.

The file name of the batch file is install.bat. The file can either be used to install the customized printing system installer using default settings, or settings can be modified as described below.

The install.bat file contains the following command line:

setup.exe /s /L#### /v"/qn RESPONSE="

These settings can be modified, and commands may be added or removed from the command line. Each forward slash (/) marks the beginning of a new setting within the command line. The settings must appear exactly in the order shown in the example above.

Dialog boxes appear on the screen to accommodate reboot messages and to ask the user to connect the printer.

The settings and their functions are described below.

start /WAIT setup.exe /w

Use this setting to force the Setup.exe to wait until the installation is complete before exiting. For example:

start /WAIT setup.exe /w /s /L#### /v"/qn RESPONSE=response.ini"

/s

This setting runs setup.exe silently.



/L####

This setting displays dialogs in the correct language (where #### is the language ID).



NOTE: The next two command-line settings are mutually exclusive - that is, one or the other can be in the command line, but not both.

/v"/qn RESPONSE="

This setting sets the user interface (UI) mode to silent. When the UI mode is silent, no reboot dialog appears, and rebooting occurs automatically if the system requires it. Even when the setting is in effect, however, a connect-printer dialog box may appear, if necessary.

Do not include spaces in the response file name. For example

setup.exe /s /L1033 /v"/qn RESPONSE=response.ini"

/v"/qb! RESPONSE="

This setting shows a progress bar without a cancel button, a reboot dialog (only if system requires it), and any error messages that occur. It might also show a connect-printer dialog, if needed. For example:

setup.exe /s /L1033 /v"/qb! RESPONSE=response.ini"



NOTE: Reboot Dialog. Depending on the components selected, and whether the end user's operating system has Microsoft Windows Installer version 2.0 already installed, the end user's system may need to be restarted. If necessary, the system is restarted at the end of the installation.

RESPONSE FILE SETTINGS


The printing system installer can be customized by changing settings in the response file.

A response file named response.ini is located in the directory where the customized installer created was created. The installer uses the settings found under the [Installer Settings], [Port Settings], and [Features] tags. The [HELP-LongFeatureNames] tag is provided to help you determine which short feature name under [Features] to set.

The settings must not be combined in a single line; rather, each setting occupies a line. For example:

[Installer Settings]


MODEL=HP LaserJet ####
NAME=HP LaserJet ####

where #### is the number of the HP LaserJet product.

The response file uses the following syntax for the settings:

SETTING=value

The 'setting' should be in uppercase. The 'value' is case-sensitive. The setting is followed by an equal sign and then the value, with no space on either side of the equal sign.

NOTE: These settings are written to the response.ini file when the customized installer is created. You can change the values, but do not change the SETTING names. They are specific to each product.

This section provides details about the settings that can be changed in the response file.


The [Port Settings] tag


Set only one of the following three types of ports in the response file:

  • Existing client ports

  • Local ports

  • New TCP/IP and IPX network ports

Do not mix settings for different ports. For example, the following command, which contains both a network port (MyServer) and a local port (LPT1), is not allowed:

NW_PATH =\\MyServer\Act_hplj####


PORT=LPT1:

where #### is the number of the HP LaserJet product.


Existing Client Ports


NW_PATH=

where is the string to use for the server path. For example:

NW_PATH=\\MyServer\ACT HPLJ####

where #### is the number of the HP LaserJet product.


Local Ports


For a connection to a parallel port, you can use:

PORT=LPT1:

Other valid settings are the LPT ports that the system supports, usually 'LPT2:' and 'LPT3:'.

For a connection to a USB port, use:

PORT=USB

For a connection to another direct port, use:

PORT=COM1:

Other valid settings are the other ports that the system supports, such as 'COM2:', 'COM3:', and 'FILE:'.


New TCP/IP and IPX network ports


NOTE: You need to override only the settings that change for each install.

First, specify the type of network port you want to create:

NW_PORT=IP (to setup a new TCP/IP port)


NW_PORT=IPX (to setup a new IPX port)

Second, use one of the following settings to specify how to identify the device. The printer configuration (test) page should have these values.

  • IP=

where is the TCP/IP address of the device in the 3.3.3.3 TCP/IP format

  • IP_HOST=

where is the IP hostname of the device). For example:

'printer1.mycompany.com'



NOTE: Be sure to include the 'mycompany.com' portion of the hostname.

  • IPX=

where is the IPX address of the device in the 8.12 ipx format)

  • HW=

where consists of the 12 alphanumeric characters of the device's hardware address

Third, if you want to configure a new or reset Jetdirect port, you must be searching by Hardware address (above). You must also set the following three settings. (These settings are ignored if the Jetdirect device is already configured.)

  • IP=

where is the 3.3.3.3 format)

  • IP_SUBNET=

  • IP_GATEWAY=

The two settings that follow are not needed by most TCP/IP users. If your system requires a SNMP Community Name or Jetdirect password, enter them in these settings. These settings probably do not need to change if you have already set them in the installer.

  • SNMP=

where is the string for the SNMP community name.

  • JDPASS=


where
is the string for the Jetdirect password.

Fourth, choose either to use a default port name, or specify a port name. The default port name is the printer model with a unique copy number appended. If you choose to use the default port name, use:

  • DEF_PORT=Y (use the default port name)

If you choose DEF_PORT=Y, then you do not need to enter a port name. If, however, you choose to specify a port name, use:

  • DEF_PORT=N (specify the port name using PORTNAME)

and set a port name using the following:

  • PORTNAME=


where
is the string to use for the port name)

The port name cannot contain spaces or be longer than 63 characters.


The [Installer Settings] tag


Installer settings that can be changed are:

  • Model

  • Printer name

  • Default printer

  • Printer sharing

  • Printer location

  • Printer comment

Model


  • MODEL=

where is the name of the model. For example:

MODEL=HP LaserJet ####

where #### is the number of the HP LaserJet product.

Printer name


The printer name is used to identify the printer in the printers folder (not used with an existing client port).

  • NAME=


where
is the string to use for the printer name. For example:

NAME=HP LaserJet ####-PCL5e

where #### is the number of the HP LaserJet product.

The printer name must be unique for the computer to which the printer is being installed.


Default Printer


The Default printer is used to set this printer as the default printer in the printers folder (not used with an existing client port).

  • DEFAULT_PRINTER=N (Don't set as default printer)

  • DEFAULT_PRINTER=Y (Set as default printer)

If DEFAULT_PRINTER=Y, then you should set the driver that is to be the default.

  • DEFAULT_DRIVER=

where is the string to use for the default driver name usually PCL6, PCL5e or PS. For example:

DEFAULT_DRIVER=PCL5e


Printer sharing


Printer sharing (only valid on Windows NT4.0, 2000 and XP) is used to offer the printer as a shared resource to other network users. (Sharing is not used with an existing client port.)

  • SHARED=N (Not shared)

  • SHARED=Y (Share using SHARENAME)

If you use SHARED=Y, set the share name using:

  • SHARENAME=

where is the string to use for the share name. For example:

SHARENAME=HP LaserJet ####-PCL6

where #### is the number of the HP LaserJet product.

The share name must be unique for the computer to which the printer is installed.



NOTE: If only one driver is to be installed, the share name should not exceed 12 characters in order to allow Windows 95, 98, and Me clients to access it. If more than one driver is to be installed, a share is created for each driver by appending the driver name to the share name (for example, HPLJ####-PCL5, where #### is the number of the HP LaserJet product). In this case, the share name should not exceed 7 characters to allow Windows 95, 98, and Me clients to access it.

  • VEND_9X=Y Install drivers for Windows 95/98/Me clients.

  • VEND_NT=Y Install drivers for Windows NT4.0 clients.

Printer location


The printer location (valid only on Windows 2000 and Windows XP) is text that describes the location of the printer. (Not used with an existing client port.)

  • LOCATION=

where is the string to use for the location). For example:

LOCATION=Second Floor, cube 101


Printer comment


The printer comment (valid only on Windows 2000 and Windows XP) is text that would be helpful to the users. (Not used with an existing client port.)

  • COMMENT=

where is the string to use for the comment. For example:

COMMENT=Letterhead in tray 2


The [Features] tag


The features are a list of features that can be turned on or off for each installation. The syntax is:

  • FEATURE=Y

  • FEATURE=N

where FEATURE is the short name of the feature. A longer feature name is defined under [HELP-LongFeatureNames]. For example:

[Features]


PCL6=Y
PCL5e=N
Fonts=Y

[HELP-LongFeatureNames]


PCL6=HP LaserJet Series PCL6 Driver
PCL5e=HP LaserJet Series PCL5e Driver
Fonts=Screen Fonts
