You can automate the process of installing the Industrial Protocol Interface plugin by installing it in silent mode.

Before you begin

Ensure the following:

What you should know

  • A silent installation is an automated way of installing software without using an installer. The silent installation is run from the command prompt using the setup.exe executable, and Windows Installer commands.
  • A silent install will install the plugin using its default settings.
  • Although it is possible to host the plugin role on any server, it is a best practice to host that role on a dedicated expansion server for best system performance.
  • For your operators to have access to the features added by this plugin, you must install this plugin on all Security Center client workstations.


  1. Open the GTAP Product Download page.
  2. From the Download Finder list, select your version of Security Center.
  3. Search for your package by name and download it.
  4. Click the downloaded .exe file to unzip it.
    By default, the file is unzipped to C:\Genetec.
  5. In Windows, right-click the Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.
  6. In the Command Prompt, enter the following command line:
    "Genetec Industrial Protocol Interface Setup.exe" /silent
    NOTE: To record logs of installation, enter the command line as follows:
    .\Genetec Industrial Protocol Interface Setup.exe' /silent /debuglog"C:\IPI_installationDebug.txt"
    When the installation is complete, Security Center will restart.


The plugin is ready for use.
