Go back to Multi-user Site Deployment
Download the installer
- Installs 32-bit Origin/OriginPro 8.6 SR1
- Installs BOTH 32-bit and 64-bit Origin/OriginPro 8.6 SR1, so computers must be 64-bit to use this MSI
About Required MS DLLs
Origin 8.6 is built using Microsoft (MS) Visual C++ 2010, and thus it requires certain MS DLLs to run. These DLLs need to exist on the computer where Origin 86 runs. MS provides installers for these DLLs called redistributable exes. Depending on the state of your computer and OS, you may need to run 5 MS redistributable exes on the computers that will run Origin 8.6. 1-3 are needed for both 32 and 64 bit Operating systems. 4 and 5 are needed for 64 bit OS only. They are available from OriginLab's website.
It may be convenient to list them all in a batch file and use the /q switch. Then each will install silently in sequence. If they are already installed, they will remain installed.
REM VCRedist.BAT vcredist_x86.exe /q vcredist_x86_2008.exe /q vcredist_x86_2010.exe /q vcredist_x64_2008.exe /q vcredist_x64_2010.exe /q
You can also include the Origin 8.6 MSI in this batch file. See below about running the Origin 8.6 MSI from the command line.
Running the MSI directly
You can run the Origin 8.6 MSI directly by double-clicking on the .msi file on the local machine. During installation, you must enter your serial number. After installation, a program folder named OriginLab\Origin8.6 will appear in the Start Programs menu list.
Running the MSI on the command line silently or passively
You can run the MSI on the command line either silently (no user interaction) or passively (no user interaction, but shows status dialog).
The command is:(all on one line)
msiexec /i "<name of msi file>.msi" [TRANSFORMS="<transform>.Mst"] /passive INSTALLDIR="<destination directory>" USERNAME="<client user or computer name>" COMPANYNAME="<company or department name>" PIDKEY="<serial number>"
For example: (all on one line)
C:\OriginMSI>msiexec /i "Origin86Setup32Bit.msi" TRANSFORMS="Origin86MSITransform.Mst" /passive INSTALLDIR="C:\Program Files\OriginLab\Origin 8.6\" USERNAME="my name" COMPANYNAME="my company" PIDKEY="sf8t5-9354-7222222"
You can also include the required MS installers as follows: (Note: the line starting with msiexec must all be on one line)
REM ORIGIN86MSI.BAT vcredist_x86.exe /q vcredist_x86_2008.exe /q vcredist_x86_2010.exe /q vcredist_x64_2008.exe /q vcredist_x64_2010.exe /q msiexec /i "Origin86Setup32Bit.msi" TRANSFORMS="Origin86MSITransform.Mst" /passive INSTALLDIR="C:\Program Files\OriginLab\Origin 8.6\" USERNAME="my name" COMPANYNAME="my company" PIDKEY="sf8t5-9354-7222222"
OriginLab provides an optional MSI transform (.mst file) that allows you to
- preset the User Files Folder to the default path used by Origin 8.6, and
- preset the FLEXnet license server machine,
so that those choices will not need to be made by users when they first start Origin 8.6. To preset the FLEXnet server, create a text file named use_server.lic of the form: (add your FLEXnet server name)
SERVER <FLEXnet server computer name> ANY USE_SERVER
and include this file in the folder containing the MSI and MST files.
To include the transform add the following to the command line:
The examples above include the transform already. To omit the transform, remove the part TRANSFORMS="Origin86MSITransform.Mst"
To uninstall, choose one of the following:
- Run the Add or Remove Files shortcut in the OriginLab | Origin 8.6 program folder created by the msi installer,
- Or open the MS Windows control panel's Add or Remove Programs program and look for Origin 8.6 and select Change,
- Or run the command
>msiexec /x "Origin86Setup32Bit.msi"
or the following for the 32-bit and 64-bit MSI:
>msiexec /x "Origin86Setup64and32Bit.msi"
