Script for automatic installation .EXE package

Mar 14, 2011 at 1:12 PM

Hi folks! I´m trying to find solution for automatic installation and RemoteInstall framework seems to be good one for me.
But I cannot find if is it suitable for .EXE installation. I mean Is it possible to use it for creating some script which can automatically click on butttons, checkbox,etc. and finished installation without
manually entry?

It really depends on your installer. Generally, every decent installer that I have seen has a command-line mode without any quesitons asked, so that's what you should do. If you want to test the UI workflow in the installer, it's a totally different game - get an automation tool that does that (I don't know any really good ones, imho they all don't have the right ratio of time wasted / benefits).

Thanks for your quick reply. Yes, I need also test UI workflow in the installer. I think that I find solutions.....to combine RemoteInstall with some other stuff.

Thanks a lot for information!

For setup installer ui testing, I use white http://white.codeplex.com and it works well besides some little quirks.
