  • Hello,
    Start -> Run
    Drag and drop that exe
    exe /?
    If it gives the switches for silent install, do it or go with setup capture
  • It helps greatly if you can let us know what application you are attempting to install silently.

multiple options here:

  1. Ninjaman's answer
  2. check if someone posted info about this app on itninja
  3. check if the exe contains a MSI (%TEMP%)
  4. Capture
  5. other..

  • From my reading of the question, the OP wants to alter the behaviour of the EXE itself, i.e. when the file (presumably something like UNINSTALL.EXE' - as usual, we get no clue!) is double-clicked, it should run itself silently.

    If that's the case, the only way to do that would be to disassemble the EXE and change the code. Best of luck with that...

    Perhaps you could build a script which unhides the EXE (having hidden it first) then runs it. Convert the script to an EXE using any of the quadzillion tools around which do that.

    Alternatively, I'd remove the EXE altogether and put it in a location to which only trusted people - and those who know what they're doing - have access. Or apply permissions to the file to achieve a similar effect.
