Silent installation of FoodWorks

Technical notes for unattended install/silent install/quiet install.

The following commands can be used to perform a silent install of FoodWorks for all users on a computer running Windows 7, 8 or 10.

These commands must be run by a user with administrative permissions.

For x32 Windows:

msiexec /i <path>\foodworks<version>setup.msi ALLUSERS=1 /qn “C:\Program Files\Xyris Software\FoodWorks <version>\UpdateLicense” -install <productkey>

For x64 Windows:

msiexec /i <path>\foodworks<version>setup.msi ALLUSERS=1 /qn “C:\Program Files (x86)\Xyris Software\FoodWorks <version>\UpdateLicense” -install <productkey>


  • <path> is the full pathname for the FoodWorks setup .msi file
  • <version> is the FoodWorks version
  • <productkey> is the FoodWorks Product Key


msiexec /i x:\setups\foodworks10setup.msi ALLUSERS=1 /qn “C:\Program Files\Xyris Software\FoodWorks 10\UpdateLicense” -install XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX 


  • The parameter ‘ALLUSERS=1’ is required to ensure FoodWorks is installed for all users. If this parameter is omitted then FoodWorks will only be installed for the current user.
  • /qn is the msiexec parameter for a silent install. For other command line options for msiexec see here.
