Hi all, I am doing a silent installation and want to see the dialog box when it completes. Right now when I run setup.exe -s I do not see anything. I at least want to know when it is finished.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

How are you launching the silent installation?

I don't believe you will be able display a built-in dialog at the end of a silent installation. It's either all or none. You may have to create a custom dialog for this purpose. However, silent installation will generate an installation log with -f2 switch. Please refer to Q102572 at IS Knowledge Base (http://support.installshield.com/kb).

I agree with TsungH, but you might try forcing a reboot and in the OnRebooted display a message saying install complete.
