I need to create a VB setup exe with the wizard that can install the application with no user intervention at all.
A further complication is that we have to distribute the MS RDO stuff as part of the installation also.
Ideas? Wizard configuration ?

You may want to check out my article, "End those update blues" at www.vbonline.com.

It gives you an easy way to do just what you're talking using plain-old VB.

Try altering the Setup wizard source that comes with VB to do this.

\Program Files\Devstudio\vb\Setupkit\setup1\Setup1.vbp

if you installed vb in the default directory..

It should be a simple change to get rid of the intervening screens that comes during setup
