By default, Soft2Base offers to download and install silently each application.
You can obviously change this in the Options to specify your own setup options.
Then you will be able to select your language during the setup process.
WARNING: it is not recommended to use this option but when creating the repository with the Download Only option.
Use one of the following parameter: /32 or /64
Soft2base supports proxys without authentication.
See the NOPROXY and HTTP_PROXY in the User Manual
Tips: If your proxy requires an authentication, install a local proxy-tunnel with NTLMAPS.
Copy soft2base.exe and create a soft2base.ini file on a drive (alternative: use the batch file sample from the download page to set parameters )
Create a cache directory.
In the [soft2base] section of soft2base.ini, add
REPOSITORY=cache ; this can be a relative or absolute path. Avoid letters like X: ; Ex: \soft2base\cache ..\setupfiles .\cache
You need to initialize your device by starting at least once to download the current catalog in this cache directory.
You may initialize the repository by downloading all setup files right now in both 32 & 64 bits, without installing anything (need around 2Gb free disk space for all):
Ex from the command line:
Ex using a separater download32.ini file
Then call soft2base.exe /SETTINGS=download32.ini
By default, the catalog and the setup files are still updated when run from the USB drive.
If you plan to use the drive without internet or in read-only mode (CD, network), you need to specify the local application catalog, usually in the same cache directory
ini=cache\apps_c.ini ; make sure it exists (run once without this flag)
Example: XnView 1.99+ means that the version of XnView will be at least 1.99
