Im trying to installing silently but i cant find any switches for it.
if i run it with /help it installs on %systemdrive%\help
if i run it with -help it installs on setuppath\-help

i cant tell wich installer is used in their setup. anyone knows something?
i will try to make an sfx archive out of the folder under program files but im not sure if it will work because i believe it installs a network driver. will post is this works.

its a great traffic meter and netrok monitor from www.desksoft.com

i just figured it out. i had to make a repackage using Installer Design Studio and it works great. the settings are stored under USERPROFILE\Application Data\Desksoft\BWMeter (this is for setings, download/upload histiry etc).

its working well right now.

In the manual file (BWMeter.chm) in Installation & Uninstallation section is stated that:
Unattended setup: if you want to install BWMeter automatically, without user  interface, please include the installation path as a command line parameter.  Also, any file included in the command line will be copied to the installation  path by the setup program. Here is an example:

  BMSetup.exe "C:\Program  Files\BWMeter" License.dlc

  This command line will install BWMeter to the default installation path and  copy the license file "License.dlc" to the installation path. "License.dlc" must  be in the same folder as "BMSetup.exe" so that the setup program can find  it.

  After unattended setup, a text file "BMSetup.log" will be created. It  contains the result of the installation.
