Introduction

I have a long history of automating programs, particularly installs. Most of these installs are AutoIt scripts which make life much easier than using the traditional batch programs. AutoIt is a free program and will make compiling these to an EXE a simple task. For those looking to use a different script, looking at how these work should be fairly straight-forward as many are just simply calling an EXE or MSI with parameters!

What kind of install will this perform

I will simply be listing the code for the program without description aside from possible comments within the code. These installs are geared towards being a passive unattended install, which essentially is a fully automated (hands-off) install with a progress bar. If no passive install was available I would default to a fully silent install.

Scripts are generally set up to be able to work off a network share. Generally I put all installation files within a folder ‘Data’ or if the program has different architectures into 32bit/64 bit data folders.
