Example batch files attached for silently installing and uninstalling.
These files assume you have extracted the installer to C:CDROM and that the setup.exe file is in C:CDROMxmetal
In the setup_Installation.bat file you must replace the string ENTER-SERIAL-NUMBER-HERE with a valid serial number (aka: registration key).
In both files, if your setup.exe file is located elsewhere, you will need to modify the path to setup.exe (which is the copy inside the xmetal folder).
Note: Trying to run the commands directly from a COMMAND prompt may fail. Possibly some kind of security feature in XP and Vista. The batch files have been tested by me, our QA department and, as I write this, one client. You probably don't want your users typing things into a command prompt anyway, so having them run a bat file, including the bat file as part of another installer, or incorporating the command into another script is really the way to go.
