Ok, I think this is about what you need to do to get visual studio 6 running with a fully unattended install AND have it update to service pack 6:

1) Make sure you fulfill the MS Java requirement for VS6. I choose to have my install first install MSJavaVM v3810 from the easy to use unattended package which you can get here:
http://unattended.msfn.org/xp/applications/msjava.htm
Put that file in the same folder as where the VS6 install files will soon be.
Ex:
c:\VS6

2) Put the visual studio install files all in the VS6 directory. If you have more than 1 cd, simply copy them all in the c:\VS6 dir and just say yes when it warns that the destination has the same folders.

3) download and extract Service Pack 6 (extract by simply running the downloaded file). Create the folder and extract the files in c:\VS6\VS6UpdateSP6\
if this link doesn't work then search MS.com
http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/download...ad/default.aspx

4) Prep the VS6 install...read this guide:
http://support.microsoft.com/?id=195828
You will need your install code/key...although I don;t think this version of VS cares if its valid or not...

5) create the batch file to run the install process....install.bat. Place this file in the c:\VS6 dir. The file contents should look as follows:
and now all you should have to do is run that install.bat file and go get munch on a snack.

*NOTE* you must reboot before you install the service pack!!!!!! I didn;t figure out a way to do this yet via a batch file (can;t use shutdown -r -t 0 because the smsinst.exe file kicks off another program and then quits so this would restart the PC while the install is still going).
