DDSSetup - Hide systray and desktop icons

I'm installing the DDSSetup master installer, and want to be able to hide the systray icon and no desktop shortcuts. What command line options should I be using?

Re: DDSSetup - Hide systray and desktop icons

Hi @AwsMike,

Starting with server version 9.6 and client version 8.12 have the ability to disable the overlay icon via policy.  Under Enterprise > Policy Based Encryption > Show Advanced Settings there will be a policy named "Hide Overlay Icons".  Enabling that will disable those from displaying across all your devices.  

Currently there's no way to disable the system tray in a similar way.  I've created a feature request and assigned it to our installer team to enable the switches we have for the child versions of the installers to be usable via the master installer.

Best Regards,
