Sometimes when you make a silent installation for your users, it is too silent for the user. Something is happening on his pc but he doesn't know a thing.
I made a simple solution with a vb script which can be launched at the launch script. This lets you notify your users that something is going on.
Place this line in the app object - run before launching@C:\Windows\System32\wscript.exe "\%path%install.vbs"
File: install.vbs # wait 6 seconds before launching this script wscript.sleep 6000 # Play a sound Dim Shell,WaveFile WaveFile = "c:\windows\media\notify.wav" Set Shell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell") Shell.Run "sndrec32 /play /close """ & WaveFile & """",0,True # display message message = "Your Text" Title = "Title" intDoit = MsgBox(message,,Title)
