Hi.... [:)]
I have a program running inside my driver package. During the driver installation it is called. It gives pop up window with a Y/N selection, so user has to press Y to continue is there a way to avoid this pop-up Y/N window & let the program runs silently. (i can not make any changes to the program).

the program added to the package using "MSI Script" >> Custom Action mode >> execute program from destination option in Wise.

Your reply appreciated, Thank you. [;)]

You could resort to a VBScript-driven shell script which uses SendKeys or use something like AutoIt [shudder...] but, in your shoes, I'd simply capture what the program does to another MSI and either merge the two or run one as a pre-requisite of the other.

While you're doing that, you might want to ask the vendor how his brain-dead package works when executed silently. Of course, it might be that the EXE takes an argument to automatically select 'Y' or 'N'. Again, the vendor ought to know.

Thank you again VBScab,

I will try with AutoIt to see if I can get it to work ( Never done it Be4)

Will let you know.

Thank you again. [;)]
