If you want to silently install TI Connect CE, there are some extra steps you have to take.

Normally when you install TI Connect CE, you get an extra popup to allow the installer to allow and install Texas Instruments Device Software. If you don’t install this device software first, the unattended installation will fail.


To be able to do a silent install of TI Connect CE, you first have to install or inject the ‘Texas Instruments Certificate’.
You can obtain this certificate on a machine where TI Connect CE is installed.

Follow this method.

Exporting the certificate:

  1. Install TI Connect CE on a test-machine or VM.
  2. Start certmgr.msc
  3. Locate the TI certificate in the ‘Trusted Publishers’ –> ‘Certificates’ section.
  4. Double-click the ‘TI’ certificate.
  5. Click the ‘Details’ tab.
  6. Click ‘Copy to file’.
  7. Accept the Wizard defaults and choose a location and filename for the certificate.
  8. Copy the .cer file to a save place outside the test-machine.


Importing the certificate:

  1. On the machine or image where you want the certificate installed, open an elevated command prompt.
  2. Type: certutil -addstore TrustedPublisher [drive][path][certificate] ( E.g: certutil -addstore TrustedPublisher c:\test\tesasinstruments.cer)
  3. You will see a message when the certificate is successfully installed.


You can now do a silent install of TI Connect CE.
