Hi there,

I need to do a silent installation within SMS Installer, I have done this in the past with Installshield by creating an setup.iss file (answer file)

However I have an app thats using demoshield, how can i undertake a silent installation without any user inputs... SMS Installer is the company standard, as we have to wrap all vendor installs

I hope this makes sense... I did try using -s and /s .. does that actually create a answer file of some sort?

Thanks
Roo

If you are using a Launch Application Action in DemoShield, you can run an install silently by uisng the /s parameter. If your install requires and answer file, you will have to create that yourself. DemoShield will not create the answer file for you.
