Is there a way to install a voice (Telephony 32 and 64 bits) silently (command line)?
If so, is that possible to add the license during the insallation?
Thank you!

Yes indeed.

From our FAQ:

Alternatively, you can enter your license key using the command-line swift utility with the windows command prompt (located at "Start Menu" -> "Run" -> type "cmd" (or "command" in win9x) then hit Enter).

To register a voice using the swift executable, call swift with the '--reg-voice' switch. You will be prompted to enter your name, your company name, the name of the voice you wish to register, and then the license key.

swift --reg-voice

Your Name: John Q. Public

Company (if applicable): Acme Widgets

Voice: David

License Key: xx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx

You will receive feedback regarding the validity of your entries. If the information is valid, the voice will no longer nag.

But you can also pass in parameters.

Code: Select all
       swift --reg-voice --customer-name "John Doe" --company-name
        "Initech" --voice-name David --license-key "XX-XXXXXX-

This is found in the help you can see this by running swift from the command line without any options.

Let us know if you have any other questions.

It's ok for the license, but you did not answer my first question.
Can I install a voice silently (command line)?

Why do you want to run the installer silently? I mean yes you can usually use msiexec to run an installer from the command line, but it just brings up the usual cepstral installer GUI, so it is hardly silent.
