Hi all!

Here is the question: i need to run some setup program (which has GUI, like install shield) and i want to run it automatically, i mean i need some tool, which can run my setup program, fill required fields with my predefined parameters etc. does anybody know about such tool? or how can this tool be made programatically, or at least ideas on this issue.

thanks in advance, looking forward to hear from you,

-It sounds to me like you need an answer file & possibly a zap install package created... Check out the 2000 CD % extract the contents in \support\deploy.cab .. Read through the documentation , & focus your search on "creating answer files for non msi apps'.
-This is also a good criteria to gather info from the M$KB, or your favorite nt site, like www.ntfaq.com..

what does answer file mean?

btw: i'm pretty sure that all i have (in my case) is this setup program and options i fill, when i run this setup. i need to install this program many times with same settings in the setup - so how can i make this work automated?
