You or your IT department may wish to do a KeyShot Network Rendering silent install, i.e., unattended installation. This is especially useful for unattended deployment onto servers. Please note that service setup is still required. To set up your manager or worker services, click here.
The following arguments are supported:
/S– Silent installation.
/D=<path>– Set the program files destination. This must be placed at the end of the command line inside quotations.
/config=<path>– Import settings from file.
/license=<path>– Install license from file. If a license exists it will be overwritten.
/resources=<path>– Sets resource path and copies existing license, config, and database, if present.
/manager– Enable manager service.
/worker– Enable manager service.
/mh=<host>– Sets manager host the worker will connect to (also enables worker service).
/mp=<port>– Sets manager port the worker will connect to.
Example of silent installation that will enable a worker and have it connect to “10.0.0.50” with default port:
keyshot_network_rendering_win64_10.x.x.exe /S /mh=10.0.0.50
C:\Program Files\KeyShot9 Network Rendering\uninst.exe /S
Use the following approach to silently install KeyShot Network Rendering on macOS:
sudo installer -pkg keyshot_network_rendering_mac64_10.x.x.pkg -target /
In order to pass options to the installer, create the file “/tmp/ksnr10-silent-install.sh”
The file should fulfill the following conditions:
- It must be owned by the user running the silent install
- It must not be writable by group
- It must not be writable by other

LUX_NR_CONF_PATH=<path>– Import settings from file.
LUX_NR_LIC_PATH=<path>– Install license from file. If a license exists it will be overwritten.
LUX_NR_MANAGER=1– Enable manager service.*
LUX_NR_WORKER=1– Enable worker service.*
LUX_NR_MANAGER_HOST=<host>– Sets manager host the worker will connect to (also enables worker service).

LUX_NR_MANANGER=0 will not disable the manager).
