Silent installation of Google Pinyin Chinese input

To install Google Pinyin silently, you can use the following parameter, no admin rights required:

GooglePinyinInstaller.exe -s

This is tested on version 2.7 on a Windows 7 machine, however,  it will not show in Programs and Features (Add/Remove program). To add an entry to it, you need the below registry:


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

“DisplayName”=”谷歌拼音输入法 2.7”
“UninstallString”=”C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Google\\Google Pinyin 2\\GooglePinyinUninstaller.exe -s”
“Publisher”=”Google Inc.”




  1. I am trying to install this via SCCM which installs under the SYSTEM context, whilst it installs all the files in “C:\Program Files(x86)\Google\Google Pinyin 2” – it doesn’t seem to work. I am guessing that just doesn’t like being installed under that context so we will have to install it after the builds per user as the command works fine from the command line.

    1. I am not familiar with SCCM and we have Altiris Deployment console here. FYI, I tried installing Google Pinyin with SYSTEM context with Altiris, same problem occured.
