Binary Fortress Software: Apps to Make Life Easier!

Installer Options

June 13, 2015

Please note: As of DisplayFusion 4.0, our MSI installer has changed, and now has new requirements when being deployed. Please read the MSI Installation section carefully, and as always, make sure to test it thoroughly before deploying it into production.

Note: The DisplayFusion installer requires administrative privileges in order to run successfully. If the installer is run using an account that doesn't have administrative privileges on the system, UAC will request the credentials for an administrative account on the system.

EXE Installation

The EXE installer will automatically close DisplayFusion (version 3.2.1+) when being run in silent mode. This is very useful for deployments. For more options, please consult the Inno Setup help file that comes with Inno Setup.


The following parameters are especially useful for deployments.


/SILENT
Enables Silent Install option (shows progress while running)

/VERYSILENT
Enables Silent Install option (does not show progress while running)

/LANG=en
Forces the installation language to English

/DIR="c:\folder"
Sets the default installation folder

/LKEYUSER="license key"
Specifies the license key for the current user (the user running the installation)

/LKEYALL="license key"
Specifies the license key for all users

/LPATHUSER="C:\license.txt"
This parameter can be used instead of /LKEYUSER. Specifies a text file containing the license key for the current user. Also accepts UNC paths.

/LPATHALL="C:\license.txt"
This parameter can be used instead of /LKEYALL. Specifies a text file containing the license key for all users. Also accepts UNC paths.

/STARTUPUSER=1
DisplayFusion will be set to startup with Windows for the current user (the user running the installation)

/STARTUPALL=1
DisplayFusion will be set to startup with Windows for all users

/CONTEXTMENU=0
DisplayFusion will not place entries in the Desktop Context Menu

/LAUNCHAFTER=0
DisplayFusion will not run automatically after setup completes, but will still run on Windows startup unless /STARTUPUSER and /STARTUPALL are set to 0

/MERGETASKS="!desktopicon,!desktopicon\common,!desktopicon\user"
Setup will not create a Desktop icons

/MERGETASKS="desktopicon,desktopicon\common,!desktopicon\user"
Setup will create a Desktop icon for all users


MSI Installation

You can use any of the standard Windows Installer command line options.

To perform a standard silent installation (note that the parameters are case sensitive):

msiexec.exe /i "DisplayFusionSetup.msi" /qn CUSTOM1="/VERYSILENT" LAUNCHAFTER=0 LKEYALL="license key" STARTUPALL=1 STARTUPUSER=0

Important Note:
When deploying via Group Policy Software Installation, you absolutely must use the included MST (transform) file on the Modifications tab, otherwise the installation will never complete.

Since the MSI Installer has changed between DisplayFusion 3.4.1 and 4.0, it is recommended that you choose the "Uninstall the existing package, then install the upgrade package" option if you'll be using Group Policy to upgrade from DisplayFusion 3.4.1 to 4.0 or higher.

The following MSI properties are especially useful for deployments. Any of the properties below can be included in an MST (transform) file if deploying via Group Policy. If you create your own MST file, you must include the CUSTOM1="/VERYSILENT", LAUNCHAFTER=0, STARTUPALL=1, and STARTUPUSER=0 properties for deploying the MSI through Group Policy Software Installation.


PATH="c:\folder"
Sets the default installation folder

LKEYUSER="license key"
Specifies the license key for the current user (the user running the installation)

LKEYALL="license key"
Specifies the license key for all users

LPATHUSER="C:\license.txt"
This parameter can be used instead of /LKEYUSER. Specifies a text file containing the license key for the current user. Also accepts UNC paths.

LPATHALL="C:\license.txt"
This parameter can be used instead of /LKEYALL. Specifies a text file containing the license key for all users. Also accepts UNC paths.

STARTUPUSER=1
DisplayFusion will be set to startup with Windows for the current user (the user running the installation)

STARTUPALL=1
DisplayFusion will be set to startup with Windows for all users

CONTEXTMENU=0
DisplayFusion will not place entries in the Desktop Context Menu

LAUNCHAFTER=0
DisplayFusion will not run automatically after setup completes, but will still run on Windows startup unless /STARTUPUSER and /STARTUPALL are set to 0

TASKS="!desktopicon,!desktopicon\common,!desktopicon\user"
Setup will not create a Desktop icons

TASKS="desktopicon,desktopicon\common,!desktopicon\user"
Setup will create a Desktop icon for all users

VoiceBot is regularly $8.99 (USD), but is on for a special Steam launch price of $7.65 (USD)! If you purchase VoiceBot Pro on Steam and enjoy using it, please review it to let others know that it's a great buy :)

Working With Window Location Rules

May 21, 2015

Note: Starting with DisplayFusion 8.0, Window Location has been replaced by the more powerful feature, Triggers. You can find out more about Triggers here: https://www.displayfusion.com/Discussions/View/working-with-triggers/?ID=43b31609-4ec6-4478-99f8-a1f11e9793f7

Window Location is a powerful feature that allows you to set the default location of an application's first window only, or the first window as well as subsequent child windows. You can have the application automatically move to a specific monitor and have it centred, maximized, or minimized. If you want to get even fancier, you can have the Window Location rule run any function from the list of functions on the Settings > Functions tab. You can even create a custom function to set the exact location and size in pixels, or you can create a scripted function to do almost anything you like with the window.

Creating a basic Window Location rule

  1. Open the DisplayFusion Settings > Window Location tab.
  2. Make sure the "Enable Window Location" option is enabled.
  3. Click Add.
  4. Click "Select Application." If your application is currently running, it will be listed in the Select Application window. If it's not running, click Browse and locate the program's .exe on the drive.
  5. In the "Move Window" drop-down, choose whether you want the application to start on the current monitor (the monitor that the mouse cursor is on), or move to a specific monitor. If you choose "Move to Selected Monitor," click the monitor in the box below the "Move Window" drop-down.
  6. In the "Window Size" drop-down, choose whether you want the application to be Maximized, Minimized, Centred, or Spanned after it's moved.
  7. In the "Window Location Mode" drop-down, choose whether this rule should apply only to the first window of the application, or all windows. "All windows" includes dialogs and message boxes in addition to regular child windows.
  8. Click OK, then OK again.
A Basic Rule
A Basic Rule

Making a Window Location rule apply to more than one application

If you want a Window Location rule to apply to multiple applications, you can use an asterisk as a wild card, or you can specify multiple programs separated by a pipe. Here are some examples:

  • If you had a bunch of programs in the same folder, and wanted them to all be moved by the same Window Location rule, you would put the following into the "Application" text box: C:\AllMyPrograms\*
  • If you have a couple of programs both named "notepad.exe" but in different locations on the drive, you would enter: *notepad.exe
  • If you want the Window Location rule to affect both Calculator and Notepad, you would enter: *calc.exe|*notepad.exe
A Wildcard Rule

Creating a Window Location rule to run a Function

  1. Open the DisplayFusion Settings > Window Location tab.
  2. Make sure the "Enable Window Location" option is enabled.
  3. Click Add.
  4. Click "Select Application." If your application is currently running, it will be listed in the Select Application window. If it's not running, click Browse and locate the program's .exe on the drive.
  5. In the "Move Window" drop-down, choose "Keep on Same Monitor."
  6. In the "Window Size" drop-down, choose "Run Selected Function on Window."
  7. In the "Function" drop-down, choose the Function that you'd like to have DisplayFusion run on the application when it opens.
  8. In the "Window Location Mode" drop-down, choose whether this rule should apply only to the first window of the application, or all windows. "All windows" includes dialogs and message boxes in addition to regular child windows.
  9. Click OK, then OK again.

  2. Make sure the "Enable Window Location" option is enabled.

  6. In the "Window Size" drop-down, choose one of the sizing options.

  2. Click the "Download Scripted" button.
  3. Download the "Move Only a Specific Window of an Application" script.

  5. Open the DisplayFusion Settings > Window Location tab.
  6. Make sure the "Enable Window Location" option is enabled.
  7. Click Add.

  13. Click OK, then OK again.
