Hello

I am about to install QuarkXpress 6.1 on my clients, but i would like to do a silent install..

The install i s a msi file but no switches to set properties parameters (license,name osv..)

Since I have to fill inn license key and accept license agreement, I wounder if I can create a mst file or there is another way to add the properties?Orca or?

thx for all help!

I know that QuarkExpress is not "supported" as a quiet install, but you may be able to discover the properties (license, name, etc) using ORCA and then passing a /qb or /qn switch to the MSI.

Also, you could look at using AutoIt....AutoIt is a free tool which can simulate key presses and mouse clicks, following a script customarily named with a .aut or a .au3 extension. Most installers have a sufficiently simple and consistent interface that a very short AutoIt script suffices to automate their installation.

At this time it is still a free product:
