View Full Version : Chaining Installscript setup.exe with Batch

07-20-2006, 12:51 PM
I want to chain some installscript (non-msi) setup.exe's in a batch file, but they seem to want to run concurrently.. they second one isn't waiting for the first one to finish.

Is there a way to make this happen?

The command line switches have changed a little over the years, but basically you want to make sure the setup.exe runs sync not async. Some of the examples also show using the start /WAIT command like:


start /WAIT setup.exe /w

There are so many variations on a theme you almost just want to try it and see what works.
