Silent Installation of USB Mobile Monitor for Systems with no Screen

Post by Devteam » Sun May 03 2020

This procedure can be used to install USB Mobile Monitor on a system with a broken monitor (e.g. a laptop) or if a screen cannot be connected.

On a working PC:
- Download the installation package from https://www.amyuni.com/downloads/usbmmInst.zip
- Extract the installer usbmmInst.exe and save it to a USB drive. For easier installation on multiple systems, you can also copy the installer to a CD and create an autorun.inf file on the CD to launch the installation automatically. The autorun.inf should contain:
[autorun]
open=usbmmInst.exe /s=1

On the target PC with a keyboard connected:
- Disconnect the PC from the network, this will avoid Windows trying to install or update device drivers during this procedure
- Disconnect your Android device but keep it close as you will need it in a later step
- If using a CD, the installation will start automatically. If using a USB drive, you can start the installation as follows: Hit Win+R on the keyboard in order to Run an application, enter 'd:\usbmmInst.exe /s=1' without the quotes. D: is the expected drive letter for the USB drive, you might need to experiment with other drive letters such as E:
- If User Access Control (UAC) is enabled, Windows will play a standard sound and prompt for confirmation that you want to run the installer. Hit 'Alt+Y' or 'Shift+Tab followed by Enter' to confirm the installation
- Hit enter a second time as Windows will prompt you to trust the publisher "Amyuni Technologies Inc."
- Once the installation starts, you will hear 2 short beeps. These are different from the Windows standard sounds and more like old-style computer beeps
- After a few seconds, you will hear 3 short beeps. Windows might play other standard sounds in the meantime which you will ignore. When you hear the 3 beeps, plugin your Android device to the system
- The installation will continue automatically until you hear a long beep, at this point your computer desktop should already be showing on your device
- If you hear the long beep and still don't see your screen, a system reboot is required
