VB5 Setup - No User Intervention

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.

So nothing with plain old setup wizard?
Assume maximum laziness...
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
