Two installation modes are available to support efficient installation of the Workbench software.
- Console mode This mode is particularly useful when installing Workbenches onto remote systems. On Linux, this mode is enabled by using the option
-cwhen launching the installer from the command line. On Windows the option is
- Silent mode This mode supports hands-off installation. Default answers to all prompts are used, although a non-default installation directory can specified if desired (see below). Silent mode is activated using the
-qparameter when launching the installer from the command line. On Windows, the
-consoleoption can be appended after
-q, that is, as the second parameter, to ensure output to the console.
If desired, you can specify the directory to install the software to when running the installer in silent mode. Do this adding the
-diroption to the command line.
On Windows, the
-diroptions only work when the installer is run in silent mode.
The following is an example of a command that would install a Workbench into the directory "c:\bioinformatics\clc" on a Windows system using silent mode with console output :
CLCMainWorkbench_8_0.exe -q -console -dir "c:\bioinformatics\clc"
On a Linux system, a similar command to install into the directory "/opt/clcgenomicsworkbench11" could look like:
./CLCGenomicsWorkbench_11_0_1_64.sh -c -q -dir /opt/clcgenomicsworkbench11
-q and the
-console options work for the uninstall program as well.
