I think I have to describe the problem nearer.

I'm trying to install a programm in verysilent mode. The installation runs well but the window opens and then my opsi installation does not finish. The problem is then that my client isn't going on booting. He waits until user says how to open the welcome page. But the sense is to do the installation without any interactions

Alright, but my question still remains.  Do the script blocks at that windows or does it continue like nothing happened ? The reason I ask is because if it blocks, you will need to create a child process to check for that window and have it closed.  If it doesn't block, you could check regularly in you main script and then close it.  I suppose again that you know exactly when this popup window shows up, right ?

You should check to see if Firefox is installed before trying to open it.


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.
