    WLSync

    I could not find the <ApplicationID> for SkyDrive either. I tried the obvious: SkyDrive, WindowsSkyDrive, WLSkyDrive, and others. Then I remembered that SkyDrive replaced Windows Live Mesh, so I tried the Windows Live Mesh Application ID, (WLSync) and it worked perfectly.

    So here is the command that I use to silently install only Skydrive - WLSetup-all.exe /AppSelect:WLSync /q

    The other Application IDs are ALL, FamilySafety, Mail, Messenger, MovieMaker, PhotoGallery, and Writer

    I've used /NoHomePage, /NoSearch, etc to install previous versions of Windows Essentials but the 2012 version didn't try to change my homepage or install a toolbar, so I have left them off. What switches still apply or don't we even need them?

    Possible switches include:

    no toolbar ceip configuration
    /NOTOOLBARCEIP

    no search configuration
    /NOSEARCH

    no homepage configuration
    /NOHOMEPAGE

    messenger only configuration
    /MESSENGERONLY

    no CEIP configuration
    /NOCEIP

    no MU configuration
    /NOMU

    non-strict dependency configuration
    /NOSTRICT

    no launch configuration
    /NOLAUNCH

    is there a registry to suppress the license agreement upon first launch of windows live messenger?

    has anyone noticed that wlm 2012 changes windows update settings too?
