Installing FrameMaker 12

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

Does anyone know how to script FrameMaker 12? Below are my coding but for some reason it execute then goes away in seconds. 


#Region ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****
#EndRegion ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****

Opt("TrayMenuMode", 1)

$AppName = "Adobe Framemaker 12"

$prompt = MsgBox(262145, "Company Name: " & $AppName & " Installation", "You are about to install " & $AppName & ". The installation can take anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes." & @CRLF & @CRLF & "Please close all running applications and click on OK to proceed.")
If $prompt = 2 Then Exit

SplashTextOn("Company Name: " & $AppName, $AppName & " is being installed..." & @CRLF & @CRLF & "Please do not open any applications until this task is finished.", 400, 160, -1, 150, 20, "", 10)


ShellExecuteWait("Set-up.exe", " --mode=silent --deploymentFile=" & @ScriptDir & "install.xml --overrideFile=", @ScriptDir)




Thanks for your help,

I would suggest you use the Creative Cloud Packager, which is meant for creating an automated install of FrameMaker. See this link for step by step instructions. The Packager spits out an MSI, which you can then run with something like this:


ShellExecute("msiexec.exe", '/i <path to MSI> /qb')
