Silent Install

8 posts in this topic

I need to do a silent install and use to use in version 2 the HideAutoItWin command. There doesnt seem to be an equivalent command in ver 3. Any help would be appreciated.

There is a section in the helpfile for V2 users which contains:

HideAutoItWin AutoItSetOption("TrayIconHide",...)

Sorry, but Its Friday and I'm on cruise control. I see the AutoItSetOption command but nothing to prevent the windows from popping up. I already got the trayicon hidden. Thanks.

Which Windows ?

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

I'm trying to install a software product, which doesn't have a silent install feature. So I want to block the popup reply windows. Thanks.

Ok, understand now...

You can test for a window to see if it exists WinExist() or WinWait() and then do a WinSetState() to hide it.

You can still work with the controls on these hidden windows with the Control???() commands....

Thanks, I was hoping to do something on the job level rather then the window level, but I'll try your advice.

Well that doesn't really work like that since you shell the installer which will start in its own process and will show windows whenever it wants to without AutoIt having control...

Even doing Run("yourprogram","",@SW_HIDE) doesn't do anything in general for a windows program but only for Commandline programs...
