RunWait error

5 posts in this topic

I am trying to execute the below command

RUNWAIT("c:\ScreenSaverInstaller097.msi /quiet" , "c:\", @sw_hide)

and get the following error:

==> Unable to execute the external program.:

Any ideas to get around this?

Thanks,

Lou

Also, you could try using ShellExecuteWait instead of RunWait !

Edit : small fix

Or since I am trying ti run a MSI, will I be better off using the RunWait with the "@ComSpec /c msiexec /i" command?

You could try and see if that works for you..but personally I would use ShellExecuteWait instead.

What does the ShellExecuteWait provide over the RunWait command?
