Auto install

I was wondering if there was a quick guide on how to use the window info tool, and using that to click, send keys, and add text to fields.

It does not sound too complicated, but if I could get some information on this, that would be great.

As always, thanks!

You can make unattended installs with click and sending keys, but there is a better way most of the time:

Most installers are created with Inno Setup, ISIS, or Installshield. An example would be:

Run ("installer.exe /silent")

Fully automated with one line.

Thanks for the info!

it doesnt seem that office 2010 works that way, im not sure what kind of packaging system it uses.

But I am making a script that installs all of our base software automatically, so I think

I have been creating automated Office installations for years. I don't have 2010 version, but Office 2007 was the easiest one I ever created. To do it, you need the Office Customization Tool:

Run through a wizard and set all your options the way you want (very customizable). Then it creates a file (usually called custom.msp). Then when you go to install it, you use command line options pointing to the .msp file.
