View Full Version : Thanks, InstallShield!
30th May 2001, 12:05
I've been presented with another problem:
Part of my installation package is an InstallShield installer. To use it, I need to run SETUP.EXE and wait until _ISDEL.EXE is finished.
I can't ExecWait SETUP.EXE because it exits as soon as the Welcome screen pops up.
I don't know the class name of _ISDEL.EXE or anything like that.
I can't change the package to NSIS or anything because it wasn't written by me.

Try ExecWaiting "setup.exe /SMS" and see if that makes Setup.exe resident for the length of the installation.

Thanks for that switch, Matt! Just wondering where you found that. Is there a list or something on the 'Net?
Thanks for your idea, Goznotek, but I've realised that you can find a window by its class but you can't wait for it to close, yet (hint, hint!).
