Hi just wondering if there is any documented windows command line switches i can use with the exe to automate the initial install of asa17 (with key/company name/username/license count passed through via a script) as well as to automated install of future EBFs, preferring a quiet, background install called from a powershell script.

SA17010_Windows_6175_EBF.exe was the first installer i used when i moved to 17 (from 16) but have now downloaded SA17010_Windows_6230_EBF to use with new installations + to upgrade existing ones with

Anyone have any advice?

Looking for "silent install" shows several questions here, I hope there are some that help, e.g. this one...- besides that, there's the Deployment Wizard if you want to customize installs.

Does anyone know if the "licensed seats" value, that is editable during the UI install, can be entered via setup params or is this going to be a case of a manual dblic step after installation?

FWIW, for information on current and older SQL Anywhere versions, I would generally recommend the DCX site, which also links to the SAP Help Portal for v17.0... - AFAIK, the v16 and v17 docs also contain this topic.
