# Basic headless installation
The Simplygon installer supports installing Simplygon on the command-line. By passing
/help to the executable from e.g. PowerShell, the available options are printed to the terminal.
> Start-Process .\SimplygonSDK_184.108.40.206.exe /help Component switches: /nomaxplugins Skip installation of Autodesk 3ds Max preview plugins /nomayaplugins Skip installation of Autodesk Maya plugins /nopythonpackage Skip installation of Simplygon Python package Other installer switches: /quiet Run installer in command-line mode /uninstall Uninstall Simplygon from the system /help Show this help screen /? Show this help screen
It is recommended to run the installer using the
Start-Process cmdlet (together with the
-Wait parameter) in PowerShell. If
-Wait is not used,
the installer executable will return immediately which can cause the output from the installer to get scrambled or lost.
> Start-Process .\SimplygonSDK_220.127.116.11.exe -Wait
In the example below we are launching and waiting for a command-line based installation without Autodesk Maya plugins.
> Start-Process .\SimplygonSDK_18.104.22.168.exe -ArgumentList "/quiet","/nomayaplugins" -Wait
