Creating folder structure of Silent Installer

The installation program files of EAServer, Appeon Server, Appeon Server EBF, and Web application must be placed in the required folder structure, so that Appeon Silent Installer can run them. For your convenience, Appeon provides a compressed folder structure which can be decompressed under any directory. To decompress and create the folder structure and the required files, take the following steps:

Step 1: Run SilentInstall.exe in the "\Toolkit\Silent Install" under the Appeon Developer installation directory, for example, C:\Program Files\Appeon\Developer2013R2\Toolkit\Silent Install.

Step 2: Select where to create the folder structure. Click OK.
