Help with MSGBOX! to display message while executable is running

5 posts in this topic

I want to display a message on the screen while a executable, installation of an application, is running.

EX. While installing Office 2010, I want a message on the screen to display, "Please be patient and do not reboot, aplication installation in progress."

Should I be looking at some other function other than MSGBOX?

Take a look at the SplashTextOn function in the help file.

You can also take a look at the UDF I created, link in signature, that allows you to create a custom "splash screen" with a progress bar that might be of some use.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

Or create the Admin Install with the progress window that MS supplies. Then they can see the progress as it installs.
