You can install App Volumes agent silently using the Microsoft Windows Installer (MSI).

You perform a silent install using the command line and you do not need to use the App Volumes installer. You can also upgrade the agent silently. See Upgrade App Volumes Agent Silently.


  • Ensure that you have installed the App Volumes Manager and you have the host IP address and port number.

  • Verify that your environment meets the system requirements. See System Requirements.

  • Verify that your account has local administrator privileges on the target computer.

  • Install Windows Updates from January 2016 onwards on the target computer.

  • If you intend to use this virtual machine as a provisioning computer, create a clean snapshot or take a back up of this machine. Revert to this snapshot or backup before you provision new AppStacks.


  1. Open a Windows command prompt on your machine.
  2. Type the following command to install the agent:

    msiexec.exe /i "App Volumes Agent.msi" /qn MANAGER_ADDR=<Manager_FQDN/IP> MANAGER_PORT=<port>
