The platform is Windows XP. I want to install several files and am using Iexpress to package them.  I want the user to be able to click on the exe. and then have two scripts run.
The first VBS (odd.vbs) installs in My Documents and the second (TFP.vbs) installs in C:root.
How would I write the inf script to do this?  Do I need a batch file to run the VBS files too?

Hi, I do not know what iexpress is, nor how to configure it.  However, I can offer a suggestion.  Let's assume, for samples sake, that you are installing an MSI that has been packaged to place the following files upon install:
%USERPROFILE%\My Documents\odd.vbs
C:\TFP.vbs

So, with that taken care of by the MSI, you want to execute those script after the installation.

I would a Batch to actually perform the MSI installation, then run the two scripts.

Something like this:

REM =============
start /wait MSIExec /i /qn \\server\share\MyProgram.msi
wscript "%USERPROFILE%\My Documents\odd.vbs"
wscript C:\TFP.vbs
REM ============

So, in theory, all you would need to do is change the MSIExec command on the first line to perform your iExpress install.

Hope that helps.

Regards,

Rob.
