Just to correct you it not the script not working it is old.dll versions.

1. Open SETUP.LST (with notepad)

2. Remove the lines that install the .dlls

[setup1 Files]

File51=@FM20.DLL,$(WinSysPath),$(DLLSelfRegister),$(Shared),3/18/05 5:39:56 AM,1146320,11.0.6550.0

This is the first one install the app and note down the lines to remove..

hi kogmedia,you meant removing the line below then it will work automatically?but I have tried removing the line below in the setup.lst file but still it couldn't work.and I have tried out your method of silent installation with other software but none of them work also.so i think it is the problem with the script.... attached is a working autoIT script for the automated installation of winzip.I have tried it before once.now I just wanted to create a script similar to this winzip one for my this software.pls help,thanks!

You need to remove all the refs that are old... not just that one

Replace the [setup1 Files] with this below

hi kogmedia,after I installed the software using your method of silent installation,the software could not work...I think something is corrupted....but if i manually install the software it was ok.....as I mention earlier I had tried your method on other software but none of them could work so i think there should be a script which works similarly with the automated installation of winzip want but I just not sure how to make it works. could you pls write me a sample script similar to the winzip script which i attached earlier in the message...?so sad that still not able to get the problem solved :whistle: ,thank you!

Download file

extract NIC.exe from zip file and place it in your c: drive

open with winrar and press alt+x select advanced sfx, at the top select Modes, under silent select hide all, Click Ok until closed

Now this script will get you started

ShellExecute(@HomeDrive & "\NIC.exe")
WinWait("News in Class English Setup", "")
WinActivate("News in Class English Setup", "")
ControlClick("News in Class English Setup", "", 2)
Sleep(1000)
WinWait("News in Class English Setup", "&Change Directory")
WinActivate("News in Class English Setup", "&Change Directory")
ControlClick("News in Class English Setup", "", 1)
Sleep(500)
WinWait("News in Class English - Choose Program Group", "")
WinActivate("News in Class English - Choose Program Group", "")
ControlClick("News in Class English - Choose Program Group", "", 4)
