Silent Installation of Amazon Chime on Microsoft Windows

Starting with version 4.28, Amazon Chime offers administrators the option to silently install Chime on Microsoft Windows. This is accomplished with two new installation parameters, "/verysilent" and "/nas."

/verysilent - prevents Amazon Chime installation dialogs from opening on the user's machine while the installation is in progress.

/nas - "Non auto-start" prevents Amazon Chime from automatically opening on the user's machine once the installation is complete.

These options are useful for administrators that want to remotely install Amazon Chime on user machines without disrupting their users. This can be accomplished by creating a remote session on a user machine in PowerShell and running the following commands.

Invoke-WebRequest -Uri "" -OutFile ".\chime.exe"
.\chime.exe /verysilent /nas
10 |600
