script not launching setup.exe

Recommended Posts

I have a script that will look and uninstall Lync 2010 if needed, and then copy down Office 2013 installer I made using OCT, and then run it from a directory I create and then delete once done.

The problem is, the setup.exe for Office 2013 in the C:Office2013 directory I create never runs at all. The whole section is completely skipped! The Lync uninstall will run, and Office will copy down successfully, then the script just goes to deleting content and done.

I can get it to run on one machine no problems but the rest never run.

Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong?

FYI I haveĀ 

#include <FileConstants.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <DirConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <Date.au3>
#include <Process.au3>

If the files do copy over correctly then the big question revolves around running the setup.exe.

I think there could be 2 possibilities. One may be an issue with the switches (/config proplus.wwconfig.xml). Try running just setup.exe without the switches. Another possibility could be the system may refuse to install after uninstalling without a reboot. Try uninstalling it manually and running the installer to see if any messages appear saying you need to reboot.

There are also lots of functions you can utilize, such as:


Click the links^, for the help file...they return @error, or a failure return...you should add handling for such things (errors|failures)
