I need to install a program on some computers at work. the installer is an exe, NOT an msi. I say this because at first I wanted to try using wmic, and I think it only works with a msi installer.
so next I tried psexec and it works to the point where the installer starts asking questions. I have this so far - on my computer I run
psexec \\remotecomputer -u domainname\admin -h -i c:\install\install.exe /SILENT
even with the /SILENT switch, on the target machine the installer launches and you have to hit "Next" to continue.
So I was wondering if I could make a batch file to answer the installer's questions. Would that be possible? If so, could you get me started with how you would answer some of the installers questions? I understand that there will be different questions that the installer asks, so I'm not asking specifics, just, in general how you could answer basic installer questions, like if the installer pauses at a question, and you have to click "Next" to continue.
