We are using Wise Script (within Wise Package Studio)

Is there any way to find out the very last file installed or copied down to a machine using setup capture?

I took a snapshot of my PC.
I then created a folder called C:\LastFile
I then copied a folder called BIN into LastFile. So I now have C:\LastFile\Bin
I then copied 1 file to c:\LastFile

When I completed the setup capture the Wise script listed the single file being copied to c:\LastFile as the very first file that gets laid down. Which is the exact opposite of what really happened.

How do you determine the very last file that gets copied down?

Thank you.

What type of installation routine are you capturing; as some will have configuration files that list the files installed in order of delivery.

This is a bad EXE. When you run it you are prompted with several dialogs that you must answer. It does not spawn any MSI file nor does it accept any command line switches. And, for the dialogs you have each has the exact same name so it is hard to capture that info. I am looking at using Robo Script (within WinBatch) which I was told can grab the title of a "button". So when the "finish" button pops up press it.

But, I figured if I knew the very last file that got laid down then I could write a script answers the first 2 dialogs......and then waits for the last file to show up....then press the finish button.

So right now I am looking at the Robo Script solution. Any other hints would be great [:)]

Have a look in the File Table for the Sequence.

"Autoit" maybe easier than Robo Script, although Ive never used Robo Script.
