Automate GUI based installation - deployed via tool

3 posts in this topic

Hi Guys,

Please suggest idea for below scenario. I need to automate (Symantec Cleanwipe.exe) GUI based installation (using button click or any other method)

But we are going to deploy this EXE via SCCM or any other deployment tool to Client machines.

1. EXE deployed to Client machines have to start automatically. 

2. Click required buttons automatically and finish install. 

Which method i can go for, please suggest.

 

Thanks,

Just out of curiosity, why would you want to inflict the pain of Cleanwipe on your end users by subjecting them to the GUI, rather than just running it silently? I've deployed silently through both Altiris and SCCM, and it works just fine; you can find the command line switches on Symantec's website. The it is just a matter of:

ShellExecuteWait("CleanWipe.exe", "/command switches")

Cleanwipe is hard-coded for a reboot afterward (at least, last revision I worked with). I do not believe there is a way of getting around that with a switch.

Silent switches is removed from the latest versions of Cleanwipe.exe 

But i need to remove Symantec from 1000+ machines, i need to run in unattended anyway. So looking for autoIT help.
