Hi there,

Does anyone know how to install FrameMaker 12 with deployment file?  I am currently using AutoIT (SciTE) for scripting.  Below are my coding but for some reason it execute then goes away in seconds.


#Region ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****
#EndRegion ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****

Opt("TrayMenuMode", 1)

$AppName = "Adobe Framemaker 12"

$prompt = MsgBox(262145, "NVIDIA: " & $AppName & " Installation", "You are about to install " & $AppName & ". The installation can take anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes." & @CRLF & @CRLF & "Please close all running applications and click on OK to proceed.")
If $prompt = 2 Then Exit

SplashTextOn("NVIDIA: " & $AppName, $AppName & " is being installed..." & @CRLF & @CRLF & "Please do not open any applications until this task is finished.", 400, 160, -1, 150, 20, "", 10)


ShellExecuteWait("Set-up.exe", " --mode=silent --deploymentFile=" & @ScriptDir & "\install.xml --overrideFile=", @ScriptDir)



Thanks for your help,

Are you familiar with the concept of searching? It's quite the thing these days...apparently.

...and you didn't figure that *maybe* all that was missing from the example was the name of the deployment file? Or from your command line, the 'action' argument?

Set-up.exe --mode=silent --deploymentFile= --action=install
Set-up.exe", " --mode=silent --deploymentFile=" & @ScriptDir & "\install.xml --overrideFile=", @ScriptDir)
