How to Install Discoverer with a Windows DOS Command Script  

Oracle Database Tips by Burleson Consulting

May 27, 2015

Question:  :  I am running Windows and I need a DOS script to automate the install of Discoverer.  Is there an easy way to automate the Discoverer installation?

Answer:  This forum post shows a DOS batch script to automate the installation of Oracle Discoverer in Windows.

 The entire package can be downloaded (it is in total 2.25Gb), the client unzips it and shares the unzipped folder, gives write permission to the share and needs to only modify a batch file that creates a network mapping to the share under the x-drive and launches the disco10gr2installer.exe file. In this way the client interaction is minimal. It's still a work in progress but coming along nicely. I'll put an explanation of the files under the script:

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <ComboConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
#include <File.au3>

$ost = @OSArch
