Software Install - Need to select checkbox

7 posts in this topic

Hi All,

I'm sure this has been answered somewhere in the forums but for the life of me, I cannot find the answer. I know it's a simple problem to solve.

I'm automating a software install (Visual Studio 2008 Express) and it's working all ok except for a checkbox that needs to be selected. I've tried to use the Send Tab option but it's not very precise. Is there a way I can select the checkbox using something like the GUISetState Function. This checkbox doesn't have any Alt-xxx keyboard shorts to select it.

Many thanks in advance.

Leonard

Use silent unattended option, for your softwre is :

setup.exe /q

When setup is the name of your software.

I only wish it had a silent install. Nope, its a nightmare of a product to install.

Searching google led me to this blog: "A simpler way to silently install Visual Studio 2008 Express Editions (with a caveat)"
