Hi, first of all thank you for the great framework!

I want to know if it's possible to pass command line parameters when running the installer after the download is complete. What I'm basically trying to achieve is a silent update.

I know I can set that in the installer configuration, but I want this only for upgrades (and not for first time installations)

Thank you,

Look in the source code of AutoUpdater.NET. Change the following.

private void OnDownloadComplete(object sender, AsyncCompletedEventArgs e)
            var processStartInfo = new ProcessStartInfo {FileName = _tempPath, UseShellExecute = true};
            processStartInfo.Arguments = "your Silent Parameter";
