How to add license key via command line   07 November 2018, 14:27

Hi, we are automating the installation of SoftPerfect RAM Disk on our web servers.

We are able to create and configure the drive OK, but can't find a way to supply the license from command line. Is there an option to do that? We are attempting to create a fully scriptable version of RAM Disk setup.

Yes, there is a way to install the licence automatically as a part of the configuration:
  1. Download this zip archive with a config template.
  2. Extract the CONFIG.XML file, open it in any text editor like Notepad, and insert your licence key where indicated.
  3. Place ramdisk_setup.exe and CONFIG.XML in the same folder, and launch it with this command
      ramdisk_setup.exe /SILENT /CONFIG=CONFIG.XML  
I recommend trying these steps in a test environment first, to make sure everything works well.

Just in case, here is the CONFIG.XML file contents:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
