Run a Custom made program Silently!!

Hi.... [:)]
I have a program running inside my driver package. During the driver installation it is called. It gives pop up window with a Y/N selection, so user has to press Y to continue is there a way to avoid this pop-up Y/N window & let the program runs silently. (i can not make any changes to the program).

the program added to the package using "MSI Script" >> Custom Action mode >> execute program from destination option in Wise.

Your reply appreciated, Thank you. [;)]

You could resort to a VBScript-driven shell script which uses SendKeys or use something like AutoIt [shudder...] but, in your shoes, I'd simply capture what the program does to another MSI and either merge the two or run one as a pre-requisite of the other.

While you're doing that, you might want to ask the vendor how his brain-dead package works when executed silently. Of course, it might be that the EXE takes an argument to automatically select 'Y' or 'N'. Again, the vendor ought to know.

I still can't quite believe I recommended AutoIt...I hate fudges.
