Vbs wait command

Hi
I am running a silent install of logmein, at the end of the installation I want to run a command to remove a registry key that the installation creates. However I wondered if there was a way to combine the commands, but ensure the second initiates only once the program has installed.

Code below

Command 1
Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell") 
WshShell.Run "msiexec.exe /q /i C:\Users\Kevin\Desktop\LogMeIn.msi DEPLOYID=00_w6snwu02u19nywfzbfoewcfxkd9zeg0qg0668 INSTALLMETHOD=5 FQDNDESC=1"

Open in new window


Command 2
Const HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE = &H80000002
strKey = "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentication\Credential Providers\"
strComputer = "."
strFind = "LogMeInCredProv"

If Right(strKey, 1) = "\" Then strKey = Left(strKey, Len(strKey) - 1)
Set objRegistry = GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=Impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\default:StdRegProv")
objRegistry.EnumKey HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, strKey, arrSubKeys
If Not IsNull(arrSubKeys) Then
                For Each strSubKey In arrSubKeys
                                strValueName = strKey & "\" & strSubKey & "\"
                                objRegistry.GetStringValue HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, strValueName, "", strValueData
                                If strValueData = strFind Then
                                                WScript.Echo "Deleting " & strValueName & " because it has a value of " & strValueData
                                                On Error Resume Next
                                                intReturn = objRegistry.DeleteKey(HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, strKey & "\" & strSubKey)
                                                If intReturn = 0 And Err.Number = 0 Then    
                                                                Wscript.Echo strSubKey & " successfully deleted"
                                                Else
                                                    Wscript.Echo "Error deleting " & strSubKey & ". Return code = " & intReturn & ", error = " & Err.Number & ": " & Err.Description
                                                End If
                                                Err.Clear
                                                On Error GoTo 0
                                End If
                Next
End If

Yes, there is.
Have a look at the parameters for the Run command. You need to add these options:
intWindowStyle
    Optional. Integer value indicating the appearance of the program's window. Note that not all programs make use of this information.

bWaitOnReturn
    Optional. Boolean value indicating whether the script should wait for the program to finish executing before continuing to the next statement in your script. If set to true, script execution halts until the program finishes, and Run returns any error code returned by the program. If set to false (the default), the Run method returns immediately after starting the program, automatically returning 0 (not to be interpreted as an error code).
I recommend you use 1 for intWindowStyle and True for bWaitOnReturn
WshShell.Run "msiexec.exe /q /i C:\Users\Kevin\Desktop\LogMeIn.msi, 1, True

Sorry, I did not notice that your command line is actually a very big one and spans three lines. Please try this one:
WshShell.Run "msiexec.exe /q /i C:\Users\Kevin\Desktop\LogMeIn.msi DEPLOYID=00_w6snwu02u19nywfzbfoewcfxkd9zeg0qg0668 INSTALLMETHOD=5 FQDNDESC=1", 1, True

BTW, it is a good idea to put your scripts inside the code blocks. Makes life easier for everyone
