How can I silently activate Nvivo 7. The following doesn’t work.


"%ProgramFiles%\QSR\NVivo 7\nvivo.exe" -a v:\nvivo7\activation\activation.xml



<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" standalone="yes"?>

Dear bjjgann,


Does your proxy server require authentication? If it does, then you need to specify your account details. Here is the command:


nvivo -a <activation filename> [-u <username> [-p <password>] [-d <domain>]]

Thanks for the quick reply. We don’t have to authenticate with our proxy. Does this attempted activation leave a log file? Which port does it use to connect to the activation server in case we have something blocking that port such as a machine policy.
