What version of AdminStudio?

In 6.0 you can use the Project Assistant ~ Installation Interview to remove them, remove them manually in the Installation Designer ~ User Interface.




A side note - Typically these are supressed rather than removed, either with the /s for a setup.exe or /qb for msiexec.

I want to do the same thing. I want to create a switchless msi. So when I execute the msi, it will install without any dialog. I know how the commandline switches work, but I want to do it without using switch.

By default you'll get dialogue boxes when running an MSI. Why do you want to do it without the switches? These are really the only way to get it to silently install.

Nothing. I'm just curious. [:D] I saw a repacked msi of Macromedia FlashPlayer, and it doesn't show any dialogs. It installs automatically and silently when I run the msi. I think it's repacked using Wise, and I know Wise has the feature to hide a dialog. But I don't have Wise, and I'm just wondering if I can do that with InstallShield.
