TitleUnable to perform Silent Installation of Quark Publishing Platform Server on a non-default location and following issues may occurs:


Issue 1: Silent installation fails and throws error 'Database.properties, Query.properties, PluginsContext.xml' files not found.


Issue 2: Software gets installed on the default location even though a non-default location is specified.



Applies to: Platform Sever 11.1, 11.0


Background:


Sometimes you may need to install Platform Server on a non-default location i.e other than 'C:\Program Files\Quark\Quark Publishing Platform\' and you specify a non-default location in the setup.xml file, for example:


<InstallationLocation MaxLength='260'>D:\Progs\Quark\Quark Publishing Platform\</InstallationLocation>


Silent Installation may fail or doesn't install on the specified location.



Solution:


This issue has been resolved in Platform Server version 11.2.1 onwards. You may now perform silent installation by specifying non-default installation location in setup.xml file.
