Silent Install

Since 8.5 it is now possible to install the installer "silent". This means that after installing the PKG installer empower will not start by itself. This also means that you will not be asked for a RemoteServiceConfig.xml or register the addin in Powerpoint. Only the first time empower is started by hand the steps are executed.
The silent install can be done from the command line:
sudo -u $(stat -f%Su /dev/console/usr/bin/defaults write com.madeinoffice.empower SILENT_INSTALL -bool TRUE && sudo installer -pkg PFADZUMEMPOWERPKG -target /Applications

Attention: If empower silent has been installed, empower must be started manually by the user, otherwise PowerPoint will never start empower by itself. As a result, a user may have empower installed, but will never use it.
