I'm trying to wrap a simple .exe but the .exe itself produces a "Copying files" dialog which can be cancelled and thus corrupt the installation/ Is there anyway of suppressing this dialog given that it is a part of the .exe??
Thanks

What is the exe you are running? Try adding /q or any of the standard switches covered here to the command you are using to call the exe.

The .exe is a patch for IE6 (q828750)

I've tried the switch but it doesnt make any difference.

It's not looking good: you can pull the files out using the /t: and /c switches:

"C:\Documents and Settings\bkelly\Desktop\q828750.exe" /T:"%TEMP%\ie_update" /C

However, the only parameter that the ieupdate.exe utility seems to accept is the Q number:

"%TEMP%\ie_update\ieupdate.exe q828750"

I'll keep looking...

I use SUS (Software Update Services) to deploy all my patches, and looking through it's config it uses this command line to silently install that patch

q828750.exe /q:a /r:n

You could give that a try, however you may even want to consider making one of your existing servers a SUS server and deploying all your MS security patches, hotfixes, and Service packs that way...
