This article is for large Enterprises who wish to upgrade from Quicklaunch V3 (ClickOnce) to Quicklaunch V4 (MSI) with no UI interaction (silent upgrade).
Quicklaunch V3 uses Microsoft's ClickOnce deployment technology. Unfortunately ClickOnce requires interaction with the desktop to uninstall. This is not practical for Enterprises with many installations of Quicklaunch.
This guide will show you how to upgrade Quiclaunch V3 to V4 without UI interaction.

Silent Upgrade Steps
There are two steps to upgrading from V3 to V4 silently:
Uninstall Quicklaunch V3
Install Quicklaunch V4
Run the Quicklaunch V4 Installer program. The following is a common example. For more install options see the bottom of the Quicklaunch V4 MSI Installer FAQ.
QuicklaunchInstallerx.x.x.x.exe APPDIR="C:\Program Files (x86)\UC Workspace\" QL_SETTINGS_DIR="C:\ProgramData\UC Workspace\Quicklaunch\" QL_IMPORT_DIR="C:\ProgramData\UC Workspace\Quicklaunch\Import\" /L*V "%temp%\qlinstall.log" /qn
Once the V4 installer is run, it will pickup the V3 settings file and migrate it to V4. This includes the license key, accounts and all other settings.
You have now upgraded from Quicklaunch V3 to V4.
