How do you mean "pick up a exe file" ?

I am going to copy the exe to c:\AV on a computer i want the batch file to be able to run the exe from there with no user interaction.

E.g. i need the answers to each step automatically done
start c:\AV\program.exe

Create a reliable backup. Make sure you always have dependable copies of your data so you can restore your entire system or individual files.

in your batch file have the line

call something.exe

that will call the exe file from your batch script

i have got that far but it need uers interface to press next for example
i need to make it total user less
if the program (.exe) requires user interaction, there is no way you can skip that through batch file.

You should take a look at the exe file if there are any command line options wich will make a silent install possible.
try to run the exe file from dosprompt with /? just behind it.
program.exe /?
and see if there are any posibilities of running it silently, if there aren't any, I guess you're out of luck.
