Software Deployment Question

Installer VICE silent install + Serial information

05/07/2015 1719 views
Hello all,

I'm trying to automate the installation of a program called Inspiration (version 7.6). It uses the installer from mindvision. I've created a recording using the -r switch, and a script to play it back using -p; which work well enough. The problem is that after the installation I'm prompted to enter information for User, Organization, and Serial number. This doesn't get recorded in the generated .ini file. There is also a prompt to install Microsoft text-to-speech that I don't think is covered by the ini file.

Any decent way to automate entering this information and packaging it into the installation?

I just used the AppDeploy Repacker software to generate an .msi file for this, then used 7-Zip SFX Maker to package it and the .xml file together. Tested it on another machine and it appears to be working well. License information was carried over too.

The reason I used SFX Maker was because I'm going to be using creating a FOG snapin and it's just easier to have a single file.
