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:
Put that file in the same folder as where the VS6 install files will soon be.

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

4) Prep the VS6 install...read this guide:
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).
