Can we use answer files with DMC?

Useful stuff for users and developers of the XML based dynamic publishing system "Arbortext". All information in this wiki came from posts to the Arbortext Adepters mailing list that were identified by members of that list as being extremely useful because the mailing list has moved around over the years. For more information see the group FAQ.

This forum and its sub-forums are open to the public.
Forum rules
Discussion posts to this group should be relevant to Arbortext users. Posts on other products or from vendors are welcome, so long as the post also mentions or includes Arbortext in the subject matter. General posts on dynamic publishing and posts from vendors other than PTC will be subject to higher scrutiny and should generally avoid posting here (especially if the referenced material does not mention Arbortext). Advertisement posts for other products (e.g., "check out my product as an alternative") are not welcome. This forum is for Arbortext users to communicate with other Arbortext users about working with Arbortext products.

All posts to this forum are moderated.

Does the DMC have the capability to use answer files to make the installation silent?

Response from PTC:

Case 11060569. Opened with PTC Technical Support on 10/3/2012

After further investigation, it has been determined that the functionality you are looking for is not currently part of the application specification.

Your product ideas are important to us and we encourage you to submit them at the “Ideas” site located on PlanetPTC Community (

As Technical Support has no input into the Enhancement Request process, there is no further action I can take regarding this issue, so I am going to go ahead and mark this case as resolved.
