RUNNING SILENT INSTALL USING RELATIVE PATHS

3 posts in this topic

Hallo,

Ive got a little program that is supposed to streamline installation of a multitude of programs. It is a GUI that has checkboxes but we are having trouble getting it to run silent installs. it seems that i have everything correct...here is the code:

If GUICtrlRead(11) = 1 Then

$flash = 'C:\Windows\System32\msiexec.exe /i "Installers\Adobe Flash Player ActiveX 90450\install_flash_player_active_x.msi /qb /norestart"'

RunWait ( $flash )

EndIf

i get an error that says that the installer cannot be found...

any suggestions

Change the /qb to /q for quiet install

AND

The command line is wrong;

Try

ShellExecuteWait("Installers\Adobe Flash Player ActiveX 90450\install_flash_player_active_x.msi", "/q /z")

OR

$Flash = '"Installers\Adobe Flash Player ActiveX 90450\install_flash_player_active_x.msi /q /norestart"'
RunWait("msiexec.exe /i " & $Flash)

Note that /norestart can be replaced with /z

Question about decompiling code? Read the decompiling FAQ and don't bother posting the question in the forums.

The PCRE (Regular Expression) ToolKit for AutoIT - (Updated Oct 20, 2011 ver:3.0.1.13) - Please update your current version before filing any bug reports. The installer now includes both 32 and 64 bit versions. No change in version number.

Visit my Blog .. currently not active but it will soon be resplendent with news and views. Also please remove any links you may have to my website. it is soon to be closed and replaced with something else.

Problem with quotes and best to send a full path to msiexec. Below is assuming your working directory is correct.

If GUICtrlRead(11) = 1 Then
    $flash = 'C:\Windows\System32\msiexec.exe /i "' & @WorkingDir & '\Installers\Adobe Flash Player ActiveX 90450\install_flash_player_active_x.msi" /qb /norestart'
    RunWait ( $flash )
EndIf
