INSTALLING AT THE COMMAND PROMPT
Rather than launching the update programs through hyperlinks in this web page, the
WBF_Validity_FMA_Setup.exe can be run from the Windows command prompt. Command prompt
installation allows options, such as silent install or log file creation, to be selected. To install the WBF

running as an administrator or the command prompt window has administrator rights. A command window
can then be open.
"WBF_Validity_FMA_Setup /s" will install in silent mode.
If this is a clean install, you can run the EXE and create a log file.
"WBF_Validity_FMA_Setup /l* c:\validity_install.log"
You can uninstall the software and create a log file using the EXE:
"WBF_Validity_FMA_Setup /l* c:\validity_uninstall.log /x"
Command line switches:
/s silent mode - no prompts
/l* log MSI actions to the specified file
/x uninstall the software
USING #RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR# IN WINDOWS 7

must be chosen. To do this:
1) Left Click on the Windows logo on the lower left of the screen:
