Hello there,

I wonder if some one can help me I have an application using
Setup.exe /s /f1"\\networkshare\software\\answerfile.iss" that I want to deploy to few computers on the LAN using SMS. There are about 4 distribution points that this package will be replicated first before advertising it to the collection.

However I want a script that will start once the installation is done successfully and will give a message prompt "installation completed" to the end user when it is done I am looking for a way to do that. Also when I am advertising I will advertise the vbs script.  

I also want to know how the script will be pointing to the program and how it is going to behave under the sms environment.  

It will be easier if it can be a script that will be compiled to exe. I am only interested in a vbs script.

You write a script, copy i to the same folder as the setup.exe and start the script with your program in SMS.
dim objShell : set objShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
objShell.Run "Setup.exe /s /f1" &chr(34) &"\\networkshare\software\\answerfile.iss" &chr(34),1,true
Wscript.echo "installation completed"
