Software Installer Version: 2.0 It's been been a long year, but I finally got some time to rework this project. I re-wrote everything from scratch because the old version was getting too complicated with so many options and sub-menus. This new version is much easier to use and I have been testing for a few days and it seems very stable. For those who are new to this software, it helps you install software silently/unattended. This new version tries to determine the silent switch automatically. You can also re-organize the order in which the software installs by dragging & dropping them in the listview. It now supports creating profiles and checks for missing software (and automatically unchecks them, so it does not attempt to install non-existent software). One feature I included was because I have seen several people on Youtube talk about disliking bright screens at night. So, now you can choose from a few color theme (half of them are dark). I dabbled a bit more into GDI+ to draw a few things and show my logo with a transparent background (hint: I'm not good at GDI+). Under the Help menu, you will find a User Guide, which goes through most of it's features. I included a new icon if you want to use when you compile the script (in the Assets > Misc folder). If you have questions, comments or suggestions, all are welcome. Hope you enjoy! Here it is in action: Software_Installer_2.0.zip
Hello, I have an AutoIt Script that has to be installed (and updated) manually with a "setup.exe" right now. I would like to add the option of a "silent installation". Currently the following steps are done when installing: 1. there is a self-extracting EXE created with "Squeeze" that calls an AutoItScript after everything is extracted 2. Read a value from the registry with RegRead (to know where my script need to be installed) 3. create some directories 4. copy the extracted files to the appropiate directories 5. create a shortcut on the desktop with FileCreateShortcut I don't want to use "Squeeze" anymore since this tool is outdated and discontinued. So only actions 2 - 5 are needed. I would like to have it like this: - only AutoIt is used - if the setup.exe (this should be an AutoIt script) is started with "/silent" then it should perform the silent installation - if the setup.exe is started without "/silent" it should perfrom the "normal" installation with display's and MessageBox'es Is there a "best practices" how to do that? Maybe someone else done this already and there are examples? Thanks for helping dolphins
