Hi all,

I am working on setting up a silent unattended install of Infor's VISUAL .Net v1.0.102.173, but am not having much luck. I contacted the company and they said that the installer was not created with a version of InstallShield that supports any of the silent parameters. My way around this was to just write a vbscript to use sendkeys to automate the installation process. However, this .NET application apparently does not even allow sendkeys. Do any of you have any suggestions on how to do this? I would like to be able to just package something up and send it out through the K1000. Any help would be great!

They have a custom version of InstallShield?!?!? I think not. Another vendor to add to the "idiot" list...

Run the installer to the first screen. Pause there, then search %TEMP%, %SystemRoot%\Temp and %AppData% for an MSI.

  • Ya, I'm not sure why they are supporting such an old version of the installer... There are actually a few different installers that run and I did what you mentioned for one of them. However, there are some settings such as "client only" rather than "full installation" that I need checked during the install process and I don't know of a way to do that with the msi. That's why I opted for the vbscript.
  • If you have the MSI, wouldn't it work with the usual public properties?
  • I think it does, however I don't know of a way to do what I mentioned in my comment above about the full and client only installations.
