Hi, i want to perform silent install of applications in WIHU. I've done it in RunOnceEx and WPI too and i know the required switches.
However, with WIHU, i'm facing a prob which says file not found.

For eg, to install Notepad++, i use these lines in 'install.ini'
 
description.1 = Notepad++
command.1 = "%WIHU%\Install\Utilities\nppinstaller4.5.exe\" /S

and i get an error saying file not found. Even changing it to
 
command.1 = "\"%WIHU%\Install\Utilities\nppinstaller4.5.exe\" /S" 

doesn't work. However, upon removing /S it works.
 
command.1 = "%WIHU%\Install\Utilities\nppinstaller4.5.exe" 

I can't perform silent installs. Can someone pls help me?

If your example is real, you have a backware slash before the ending quote, right after the file extension.
Also, you don't need the quotes. Here is an excerpt of my install.ini

description.1=UniExtract
command.1=%WIHU%\AHK\AHK.exe %WIHU%\AHK\misc.txt 7z x %WIHU%\Apps\Compression\UniExtract.7z -o"%UniExtract%"
selected.1=1


The quotes around %UniExtract% are needed because it can contain spaces and 7zip would have a problem (I use an ahk script to hide 7zip's command window).

Works like a charm now, :thumbup Thx
I didn't think to remove the quotes after removing the spaces. :blushing:

I read your XP Mod post btw, good job :)

btw: i discovered, that its not possible to use more than one quote for each command line.
e.g.

c:\program files\myprogram\myprogram.exe
x:\My Programs\my files.xyz

command.0.1="%programfiles%\myprogram\Myprogram.exe" "x:\My Programs\my files.xyz"
will not work, in the upper exampe you need quotes, because the path/filenames contains spaces.
The solution i found, its to not user more than one quote pair.

I think you can but have to escape some so that your example looks like :
command.0.1="\"%programfiles%\myprogram\Myprogram.exe\" \"x:\My Programs\my files.xyz\""
