Why not use InstallShield's silent install and others switches which would bypass all the clicks?


Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.

I had one of the software engineers at my work help me with the installshield's silent install before trying this and we ran into some snags and could not get it to work and we were spending more time then it was worth so I moved to using autoit I got the install working just fine just need to update a .ini file after the install that is all I am running into a problem with.

I don't know whether English is your native language, but it really helps if questions are worded properly (that care is taken).

I'm presuming that

 

does to GO

 

actually means "doesn't go"?

It may help us to know the content of your INI.bat file.

Do you know for sure that it doesn't run?

Or is it just not giving the results you expect?

I think it is fairly safe to say, that if it runs on its own with the prior lines commented out, then it is probably running.

That's taking for granted, that it exists already at the run location.

It could well be just a timing issue, which might be apparent if we knew the commands you use in the INI.bat file.

I'm presuming, that certain things need to have finished, before the INI.bat file runs?

sorry for the bad typing I get typing fast and miss a few letters or words in there but any who I figured it out... at the end of my code I had a winwaitactive and that was holding the whole thing up it was waiting tell the window was active but it had already done what it needed to do. after I changed it to winactivate it ran without a hitch. thanks all for your help and imput.
