Hello,

I am trying to set my InstallScript (Non-MSI) project to be able to run in silent mode. Is there a way to force the installer to always run in record mode without the user running it with the -r switch? I need the ability to run a silent installer without expecting the user to do anything to make it work. We are using WinSparkle in our app to handle updates and it will run the installer in silent mode for us. Is there a way to make the installer run in record mode without needing the user to be involved?

Thanks,

Jared

You'll need to use a scripting tool such as AutoIT or IExpress to package the installer, options and responce recording file.
IExpress is part of windows and can create self-extracting EXE - https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd346760.aspx
