vSphere Client unattended install

    I'm trying to do an unattended install of vSphere Client,  I've tried "/s /v /qn" (per the /? dialog) which doesn't work.   What are the correct parameters?

I've not done silent installs of the client, but this post seems to have the information you need:

http://www.wekabyte.co.uk/2010/02/vsphere-client-silent-install/

From the article:

The right file to use is from the vCenter installation media (zip file or iso). In the “vpx” folder is a VMware-viclient.exe file that is 137Mb in size (the archive file mentioned above is about 114Mb). If you place the file on the root of your C:\ drive then a silent installation (an unattended one at least) can be performed using the following command line:

start /wait C:\VMware-viclient.exe /q /s /w /L1033 /v" /qr"

the option Chris mentioned is correct. Its for installing English version of vSphere Client.

Details on commandline parameters are available in section "Installing vCenter Server or vSphere Client" in the guide http://www.vmware.com/pdf/vsp_4_vcserver_cmdline_install.pdf
