    Post How to activate Installshield 2012 spring express by command line

    Hello there,

    I am trying to silently deploy and activate InstallShield 2012 Spring Express via SCCM. The deployment works fine however, I didn't find how to activate the software by command line.

    The activation process is done with the following program C:\Program Files (x86)\InstallShield\2012SpringLE\System\TSConfig.exe

    Is there anyone who could tell me the exact command line to activate the software with a specific serial number?

    Many thanks.

    Cheers

    Hi,

    You can create a registry value to Activate InstallShield.
    1. Launch regedit
    2. Go to HKCU -> Software -> InstallShield -> <Version> -> Professional
    3. Create a String registry value and rename it to SerialNumber
    4. Enter your serial key as Value data

    Thanks.

    You can use the following command line to silently activate InstallShield with a specific serial number:
    TSConfig.exe /silent /activate /serial_number12345678-D09-1234567890

    *Obviously you need to replace the above serial number with a valid number.

    **Notice that there cannot be a space between the /serial_number command switch and the serial number!
