Issue Details

When I silently install my LEGO® MINDSTORMS ® Education EV3 Software, the InstallationType section in my spec file is not applied. Regardless of specifying TeacherInstall or StudentInstallin my spec file, the Student Edition is installed. How can I successfully and silently install my LEGO® MINDSTORMS ® Education EV3 Software?


In order to successfully install the Teacher Edition with a silent install, you must manually specify the required feature states in the spec file as opposed to specifying the Installation Type. To silently install the Teacher Edition, add the line EV3_EDU_Mode.EV3.EDU.MODE.100=Local under the [Features] section of the spec file. You may also download the spec file attached below.
