EZ-VOTE Connect Silent Install (MSI)

Modified on Tue, 11 Sep 2018 at 10:19 AM

Meridia can only provide general instructions on how to perform a silent install, because the procedure differs from one company to another.

Our corporate clients have their own ways of "packaging" our software and distributing it to their users across the enterprise.

Please see attached the PDF version of this quick start guide.


Microsoft Office 2010+ must be installed for the installer and the software to work. Certain components listed below are prerequisites to MS Office and will be installed as part of that process, but we are including them in our package anyway. Therefore, if you can verify that Microsoft Primary Interop Assemblies (MS PIA), .NET, Visual Studio Tools for Office (VSTO), and the Windows Installer are already installed in their required versions, your own Meridia EZ-VOTE Connect installer package doesn’t have to include them. A restart may be required after installing these Microsoft prerequisites.

Normal (Single Workstation) Installation

The "EZ-VOTE Connect Installer.exe" (Application) is a 'shell' or 'wrapper' around the Microsoft and Meridia components that executes them one by one...and if they don't exist on the given computer (are not installed), downloads them automatically from official Microsoft download locations.

To install the Connect app on a single computer, run the 'Application' called "EZ-VOTE Connect Installer"


Once you launch the installer, you'll see a window like this:


Go through the process of installation (the offline package should include all of the required components, but if anything is missing, we'll download and install it for you):



You'll see progress of the installation via the highlighted icons and the blue progress bar(s):


At the end, you can either run the Connect app directly from the installer, or from your desktop:
