To do a silent install, just use a '/S' command line switch. I ran into issues because it wouldn't populate the shortcuts when deployed with LANDesk to XP (worked fine with Windows 7, go figure).

I know this is a lot of code to do something that is pretty simple, but 95% of it is functions/snippets of code I reuse.


'Declare scripting objects
Set oNet = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Network")
Set oShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set oFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set oSpecFolders = oShell.SpecialFolders

Dim eAllUsersDesktop, eAllUsersPrograms

'Declare Environment variables
eAllUsersProfile = oShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings("%AllUsersProfile%")
eUserProfile = oShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings("%UserProfile%")
eProgramFiles = oShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings("%ProgramFiles%")
eAllUsersDesktop = oSpecFolders("AllUsersDesktop") 'C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop
eAllUsersPrograms = oSpecFolders("AllUsersPrograms")

'Install silently
oShell.Run """" & GetScriptPath & "Winmail_Opener.exe"" /S",0,True

'Delete the desktop shortcut if this isn't windows XP
If OSVersionLookup = "XP" Then
If oFSO.FolderExists(eAllUsersPrograms & "\Winmail Opener") = False Then oFSO.CreateFolder eAllUsersPrograms & "\Winmail Opener"
CreateIcon eAllUsersDesktop & "\Winmail Opener.lnk",eProgramFiles & "\Winmail Opener\wmopener.exe","","Winmail Opener",eProgramFiles & "\Winmail Opener",eProgramFiles & "\Winmail Opener\wmopener.exe,0"
CreateIcon eAllUsersPrograms & "\Winmail Opener\Winmail Opener.lnk",eProgramFiles & "\Winmail Opener\wmopener.exe","","Winmail Opener",eProgramFiles & "\Winmail Opener",eProgramFiles & "\Winmail Opener\wmopener.exe,0"
End If

sub CreateIcon(sPath,sTarget,sArguments,sDescription,sWorkingDir,sIconLocation)
set oShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

set oLink = oShell.CreateShortcut(sPath)
oLink.TargetPath = sTarget
oLink.Arguments = sArguments
oLink.Description = sDescription
oLink.WorkingDirectory = sWorkingDir
oLink.IconLocation = sIconLocation
end Sub

Function GetScriptPath
' Return path to the current script
Dim path
path = WScript.ScriptFullName ' script file name
GetScriptPath = Left(path, InstrRev(path, "\"))
End Function

Function OSVersionLookup
Set oWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\.\root\cimv2")
Set colItems = oWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * From Win32_OperatingSystem")

Dim sInstallType

'Check the version of Windows
For Each oItem in colItems
If Instr(oItem.Caption, "Windows Vista") Then
sInstallType = "VISTA"
ElseIf InStr(oItem.caption, "Microsoft Windows 7") Then

sInstallType = "XP"
'Defaulting to UNKNOWN
