Hi All,

I have packaged a application using AI Snapshot from Symantec, but the output file is EXE. I have created a application that installs updates and client applications on login, but when trying this output EXE file it displays the installation window.

Not a problem I thought I will add some slient switches, but it doesn't look like it has any. Am I doing something really stupid [8|] or can a AI Snapshot output EXE be sileintly installed without the blue install window.

Or can the AIC or EXE be converted into a MSI file.

Thanks

I don't think many people here use Ghost AI Snapshot for packaging. Read the doco and see if ghost has a support forum for the product.

If you're looking for a one shot deal you can download a trial verrsion of Wise or installshield and see if that works better. But if you're going to do this on a regular basis you'll need a good packaging tool. Most people use Wise or Installshield but there are a few others, have a read on this site - I think Bob Kelly even authored a very low cost utility for packaging.

Ok thanks for the reply, I also have Zen and SMS so may look at them to re-package and deploy.

Ghost, Zen and SMS are free to our company (NHS) so we are looking at all products to see what is best. Currently we use a application that was built by myself using KiX, all updates and client application installations are done on logon. We have had no problems with this but is a nightmare when we recieve applications that are not in a MSI format.

Thanks

I have been searching all day and have now found it. The switch is /An for Fully silent.

Thanks
