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 create a shortcut on the desktop with FileCreateShortcut I don't want to use "Squeeze" anymore since this tool is outdated and discontinued.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
