At some point in the last few months a release added Visual C++ redistributables.  Since then, silent installs have been failing.  

I'm using this command: start /wait P4vinst64.exe /S /v"/qb REBOOT=ReallySuppress"

The installer chugs a few seconds, returns a prompt, and P4V isn't installed.  Did the command line get some new switch I'm missing?

The problem appears to be the Visual C++ redistributables.  Please install the redistributable separately and silently such as with

VC_redist.x64.exe /install /passive /norestart

as seen in "Installing Visual C++ Redistributable Package from Command Line"


which references
"Download Microsoft Visual C++ 2017 Redistributable"


which points to the download of the redistributable

Then try the silent install again.
