Dear Sir,

I am new to wise scripting,for Office XP SP3 SMS push, how can someone create a wise script that will not push the package to the desktop until the user close all running Office XP programs or it gives some kind of loop to the user that close the program and then the application installed,so can somebody send me a wise script in the e-mail.I will be grateful to you.

Thanks

Office is one of the few applications that slipstream the updates into memory and then after reboot fully apply them. So even if a user is using office at the time it should still install the update fine. In fact you can't check to see if the Office Applications are in use with Wise.

However, in the future you can check if an exe is in use pretty easily. You can copy the below text and paste it into Wise to see how this is done. I am using notepad.exe as an example.

Text=EXAMPLE SCRIPT TO CHECK FOR A FILE IN USE BEFORE CONTINUING AN INSTALLATION
end

end

I can't attach a file nor do I have your email address. The email option in the forum doesn't seem to allow attachments.
