Hi all,

I am currently trying to setup a Silent install for a client. The application, BlackIce, is an Installshield .exe and I have already extracted all of the information from it. However, I have hit a problem. How can I setup a Silent install that will prompt the client for a Product key? I know this is really not a silent install, but this is what the client wants and I am trying to deliver. I have already try to fiddle around with the Setup.Iss file but it has not helped. I am including the contents of the setup.Iss file if that helps.

You need to modify the Dialogs in a transform. I'm not that keen on the specifics as I'm more familiar with Wise, but you should disable all dialogs (which will result in accepting the default values) except for the license key. In Wise, it's just a matter of clearing a check box, InstallShield should not be all that different.

Unfortunately I am not using installshield. This is all based on attempting to run a silent install w/out Wise or installshield. Just the basic functions that are available. I attempted to package the application with Wise. Unfortunately Wise did not allow me to create a silent type install, with the exception of the Product key Prompt. If you have any other suggestions please post them, and thanks for any help you can provide.
