StresStimulus supports unattended installation for automated deployment purposes.

Controller installation

To install a StresStimulus controller unattended, run the PowerShell script below on the target machine. 

$DownloadPath = "${env:USERPROFILE}\Downloads\"

$ConfigScript = '<configuration>
     <startup>
          <supportedRuntime version="v4.0.30319"/>
          <supportedRuntime version="v2.0.50727"/>
     </startup>
</configuration>'

Invoke-WebRequest -Uri "http://update.stimulustechnology.com/stresstimulus/StresStimulusInstaller_cmd.exe" -OutFile "${DownloadPath}StresStimulusInstaller_cmd.exe"
New-Item -Path "${DownloadPath}" -Name "StresStimulusInstaller_cmd.exe.config" -ItemType "file" -Value "${ConfigScript}"
Start-Process -FilePath "${DownloadPath}StresStimulusInstaller_cmd.exe" -ArgumentList '/q'


To upgrade a StresStimulus trial to an acquired license, your serial number should be activated on the controller manually.

Load agent installation

To install a StresStimulus load agent unattended, run the PowerShell script below on the target machine. 

$DownloadPath = "${env:USERPROFILE}\Downloads\"

$ConfigScript = '<configuration>
     <startup>
          <supportedRuntime version="v4.0.30319"/>
          <supportedRuntime version="v2.0.50727"/>
     </startup>
</configuration>'

Invoke-WebRequest -Uri "http://update.stimulustechnology.com/stresstimulus/StresStimulusInstaller_cmd.exe" -OutFile "${DownloadPath}StresStimulusInstaller_cmd.exe"
New-Item -Path "${DownloadPath}" -Name "StresStimulusInstaller_cmd.exe.config" -ItemType "file" -Value "${ConfigScript}"
Start-Process -FilePath "${DownloadPath}StresStimulusInstaller_cmd.exe" -ArgumentList '/q /agent'


After installation, the load agent machines do not need to be activated with a license and are ready to use.

Remote unattended installation

Controllers and load agents can be deployed remotely.  To do so, execute the appropriate PowerShell script remotely following this Microsoft PowerShell Remoting guide.
