I have done this in the past, but it has been such a long time ago I have forgotten how.

Setup.exe may produce 1 of two possible dialogs during an install. The dialog info is captured in the response file, however, sometimes septup maybe wanting a response dialog 1 or dialog 2. How can I tweak the response file to responde to either one at runtime.

Hi Kgitter:

First of all the command line to create a .iss(response file) is as follows:

<path of the setup.exe>setup.exe -r-f1<path of the setup.exe>install.iss
e.g. d:\myfolder\setup.exe -r-f1D:\myfolder\install.iss

same way u have to create a .iss file for uninstall:

<path of the setup.exe>setup.exe -r-f1<path of the exe>uninstall.iss
e.g. d:\myfolder\setup.exe -r-f1D:\myfolder\uninstall.iss

As u said u want to make a response for either of the dialog so try to make a .iss file with an option which has both the dialogs at the time of installation.
That means u will have a single response file for both the dialogs.
And for example only the dialog no.2 appears then the response file will respond to dialog no.2.

I think this should solve ur problem. Incase u need any help pls let me know.
