Forcing repair for an executable created with Install Shield 12
Posted on 2011-03-09
We have a 3rd party installer (a camera driver) that was created as a stand-alone redistributable.
We call this from our own installer. However, if the driver is already installed it brings up the 'Modify / Repair / Remove' prompt.
is there some parameters we can pass it that will automatically do a 'repair'? (Alternatively we could just look at some registry keys and choose not to run it if it appears to be installed already - but we'd prefer not to do that.
We've tried parameters like /f /V .. so the program is run as 'setup.exe /f /V'
Unfortunately it seems hard to find the parameter information on the web - the official website simply points to the latest one .. not Version 12.
Thanks in advance,
(PS: I'm guessing that it was created with InstallShield V12. The executable is labelled as Macrovision Corporation with File Version 188.8.131.52974. It's a camera installer)
