Dear Support

Are you able to provide us an MSI installer of the RAM disk? We would like to distribute it through Microsoft SCCM to our environment.

Thank you

Sorry, we don't have an MSI installer, but unattended installation is possible and the product can be easily deployed with with a couple of command line switches.

First step is to prepare the initial disk configuration and general settings:
  1. Install the RAM Disk app normally and configure its settings, enter licence key and create RAM disks as desired.
  2. Copy ramdisk.xml from %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\SoftPerfect\RAM Disk to a separate folder. This file will contain the general configuration, licence and any defined logon-time RAM disks.
  3. Export HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\SPVVEngine\Options\Auto from the registry to a REG file. This file will contain any defined boot-time RAM disks.

Second step is to deploy the installation package and the configuration:
  1. On a target machine, launch the RAM Disk installer with /SILENT (progress shown) or /VERYSILENT (nothing shown) switch.
  2. Once the installation is completed, copy ramdisk.xml created above to %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\SoftPerfect\RAM Disk.
  3. Import the registry key we exported above as regedit.exe /S yourfile.reg
  4. Reboot, and everything should work.
