Does anyone know what switches can be used with the setup.exe for Wise Installation Wizards? I want to automate a shrink wrapped package that uses this (not an MSI based thing!), and I know that /s will run it silently, but the trouble is that the activation code has to be passed in somehow.

Is there a command line option for the activation code or do I have repackage the whole thing into MSI format?

Hi Bob:

First you need to find out the variable that is storing the license/serial/activation number and then make a txt file that will store this variable along with its correct activation number

for example
values.txt(this should not change)
ACTIVATION=XXXXXX

Come back to your Wise Script and double click on the line where this variable is declared for the first time, this should be somehow like this:

Set Variable ACTIVATION

And once on the details window of the click on option Read variables from Values File

now you all set drag the exe to the run box and type in this command:

c:\setup\setup.exe /M=C:\Setup\values.txt

Now the value will be read from the txt file and shall install the same, do let me know in case the same worked?
