Windows Installer options

Hello is there a list of Elements Windows Installer commandline options ?
I see the installer is InnoSetup based so there are some general opts: Inno Setup Help (
But i need to know the component names possible to set for /COMPONENTS opt
to customize the automated installation like this.

Is there any option to register the installation to your licence server during the installation process ? Currently we have to manually download licence and distribute it over intranet file system which is a security issue. We dont want do distribute the elements account credentials as well.

Thank you.


these are the component names. i’ll see if i can document those on the docs website

You can do that with the Everwood.exe tool. Note that you will of course have to provide the login information with your script, somehow.
