HP deskjet Printer Driver 4500
I'm having the same issue as $tar_sk - if you kill the dialog process (hpqwrg.exe), then you also kill the main install process (hpzstub.exe).
To make things even more fun, the installer won't run at all unless Autorun.inf exists in the same directory as the setup EXE files. At my company, our enterprise AntiVirus software normally scans for and removes any instances of Autorun.inf from server shares and clients as a security policy.
Of course, HP could eliminate these problems by assigning a competent engineer to write their installers for them, and making the "corporate" driver installs DIFx-ready vs. forcing all their customers to engineer kludgy work-arounds. But what fun would that be?
Is this the actual driver, or the full software install package?
Is it for XP, Win7, or something else?
Where can I get the download to look at it?
What exactly are you trying to accomplish?
Have you checked with HP?
If it's just the driver you should be able to extract the drivers and run something like "rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /if /b "Test Printer" /f %windir%\inf\ntprint.inf "
I then unzipped the EXE using 7zip.
I then ran \OJ4500vG510g-m_basic_13_en\OJ4500vG510g-m_Basic_13_en\hpzstub.exe -s
I get the registration dialog, so I packaged in a task to kill the process; hpqwrg.exe is the process name.
This ran an unattended setup. hpzsetup.exe did nothing for me.
I have no idea if it works since I don't have an OfficeJet 4500 series printer, but the install completed properly witout user input.
There are many deployment and packaging tools, so I'm not able to advise of the specifics for your tools, but those are the basic findings. Hope that helps.
When I am deleting this MSI manually and running the exe again it is going to rollback and uninstalling the previously installed msiI'm sorry but the very fact that you think deleting an MSI is a means to suppress a dialog means that you are, at present, totally unsuitable to be even be considering this exercise. Get yourself on a training course bfore you do some real damage.
@cblake " Thanks for your effort. hpzsetup.exe /s installed silently for me and I just chkd hpzstub.exe -s also installed silently except for the appearance of the registration window in both the cases. I will try suppressing the process as u mentioned."
so that the conversation will remain readable.
