Silent Install - Starry Night 7


    First, let's install all the required prerequisites before installing Starry Night. Otherwise, Starry Night will run with full UI to install prerequisites.

    Apple QuickTime (Note - Apple Quicktime is no longer required for Starry Night 7, but you must be installing/running 7.4.1 or later.  If you are using an older disc please contact support to acquire a new download of latest installer)


    ********* Apple QT No Longer Required for Starry Night 7.4.1 and higher **********


    Download link:

    You can install QuickTime silently with "QuickTimeInstaller.exe /passive", but you will very likey receive an error message that reads "The file cannot be found in cabinet file This could indicate a network error, an error reading from the cd-rom, or a problem with this package."

    What you can do is:

    1. Open command prompt
    2. cd to the directory that contains QuickTimeInstaller.exe and run "QuickTimeInstaller.exe /extract".
    3. You should see 4 files next to QuickTimeInstaller.exe. They are AppleApplicationSupport.msi, AppleSoftwareUpdate.msi, QuickTime.msi, QuickTimeInstallerAdmin.exe.
    4. Remove AppleSoftwareUpdate.msi and QuickTimeInstallerAdmin.exe.
    5. In the command prompt, run "msiexec /i AppleApplicationSupport.msi /passive /norestart"
    6. Then, run "msiexec /i QuickTime.msi /passive /norestart". You have to install AppleApplicationSupport.msi before QuickTime.msi.
    7. QuickTime is now installed. If you want to removed the desktop icon for QuickTime Player, run del "C:\Users\Public\Desktop\QuickTime Player.lnk"

    So all you need is AppleApplicationSupport.msi and QuickTime.msi to silently install QuickTime.

    NOTE: If you don't want the progress bar, replace /passive with /quiet.




    Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2012 x86

    Download Link:

    You can install Visual C++ Redistributable silently by running "vcredist_x86.exe /passive".

    .NET Framework 3.5

    Only need to enable .NET Framework 3.5 for Windows 8 and 10. Simply run "dism /Online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:NetFx3 /Quiet".

    Also, make sure you have at least Internet Explorer 9.

    Now we have all the prerequisites installed. Let's install Starry Night.

    If you want a progress bar during installation, run starrynightcollege7.exe -s2 -sp" /passive".

    If you want no UI at all, run starrynightcollege7.exe -s1 -sp" /quiet".
