For editors to be able to create content, the recorder application must be installed on the computer which will be used to make the recording. In environments where software is centrally managed and automatically distributed, the recorder can be installed using unattended installation. This is achieved by using command line switches to silently install or uninstall the application. All available command line switches are documented below.


The recorder must be installed on a computer in order to create a recording. The required installer can be downloaded from the download page. To perform an unattended installation, the installer can be launched with any of the following command line switches (case sensitive):

  • /S: silent installation
  • /ALLUSERS: all user installation in Program Files directory, requires admin privileges
  • /CURRENTUSER: current user installation in the user's local app data directory
  • /D="<path>": custom installation path, only applicable when used together with /ALLUSERS


After installation is complete an uninstaller with the filename Uninstall SelfGuide Recorder.exe will be available in the installation directory. To uninstall the recorder in unattended mode, start the uninstaller with the /S command line switch. This will silently uninstall the application from the computer.
