Samsung Kies - Silent Automated Installation Process

With Samsung taking over a large proportion of the business mobile sector, there is a bigger need for IT techs to be able to push out software like Samsung Kies.

This has happened to a client of ours recently and they wanted to put Samsung Kies into their Configuration Manager Software Catalog. This is a pretty simple task to carry out, but you must use the correct parameters and installation files to enable it to work correctly.

First of all, you need to download the Samsung Kies self extracting installation file from their website, you can get this by clicking on the link below:

Samsung Kies Software Download

Once you have this file, you need to ensure that you use the exact installation command line as per below, nothing the caps and where the spaces are and where they are not - this is not a typo!:

 Kies3Setup.exe /S /v/qn  

If you use this installation command line with a system like Configuration Manager, you can allow the silent, automatic and successful installation of Samsung Kies.

Support Forums Officially Open!

We are pleased to announce the official launch of our support forums.

They will be primarily used for our products that we create if you find any bugs or would like to request any additions in future releases, but we will also be using the system for general chat and a range of support requests.

So if you have any issues that you would like us to help you with or have other forum members help you with, you should visit the forums, sign up and add a post.

You can also post your own guides in there and if they are any good, we will add them to the main site and of course credit you for your work.

Due to the huge amount of spam that we get, we have had to set up the forums so that you have to register and then confirm your email address - we know, we hate that too but it stops the spambots from battering the forums with junk posts.

You can enter the support forums by clicking on the Support Forums button on the top menu bar or using the link below:
