Hi all,

I am aware that Microsoft Visual Studio 97 (i.e., Version 5.x) uses the Microsoft ACME Setup engine, and, to that effect, I am sure there must be a way to do an unattended (silent), chained install of all the VS tools, and the MSDN and Service Pack 3.

Reason why I am asking is, I have a large legacy code base, and I need Visual Studio 97 around in order to maintain these projects (to open their .dsw and .dsp files).

Any help would be appreciated. I want to install the following, one after the other, silently, with a batch file, without having to invoke the "Master Setup" and click through all the screens:

- VB 5.0
- Visual FoxPro 5.0
- Visual J++ 1.1
- Visual C++ 5.0
- Music Producer 1.0
- Visual InterDev Client 1.0
- SP3
