Hi all,

Having been to the packages section of appdeploy.com, I was in search of information about installing wildfire3x unattended, to which I found instructions on how to make a custom install point. Once I had that, I could run the following command from a dos prompt (using windows xp) c:\program files\ptc_custom\setup.exe -nographics -uitrail something.txt and it went smoothly.

Now here is the problem, when I try to create a .bat file containing the above command line, and then doubling clicking on it, the installer does not start. Does anyone know why this will not work?

Any help much appreciated. Basically I don't want to type the command manually for every machine I have to install this software on.

does your bat file contain the line

"c:\program files\ptc_custom\setup.exe" -nographics -uitrail something.txt

the space in program files might cause the error -- Make sure you have the quotes around the path\filename.exe

or try calling c:\progra~1\ptc_custom\setup.exe -nographics -uitrail something.txt

I have concluded that after a bit of trial and error with the .bat file I can say this:
When the bat file contains "c:\program files\ptc_custom\setup.exe" the installer windows appears and is ready for installation.

When the .bat file contains "c:\program files\ptc_custom\setup.exe" -nographics -uitrail something.txt, it does not work.

So the minute I ad the options after setup.exe the .bat file fails. Now I am confused
