    I am looking to make a .exe (patch) that would copy a .dll to a specific location and overwrite the exisiting .dll . I would want the actions to take place "silently", by that I mean it would happen behind the scenes with no user interaction or indications of what is happening other than clicking on the original PATCH.exe.

    I am posting in this section because I want to use the patch with the mso.dll mentioned in the forum.

    Thanks for any help.

    Here is a simple batch command to copy a dll to an office 2007 location...

    Xcopy "FILE_NAME.DLL" "C:\program files\common files\microsoft shared\office12" /y


    All I did was create an exe using a program called EXE. Script, if you change the above command to what you want and post here i wil create the exe file for you and email it to you if you like...

    It depends on where the file must be written to, but the chances are pretty big you'll need admin privileges, that means an UAC prompt will always be shown, nothing you can do about that.
     
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...

    Or create a winzip exe to install without any user prompts.. and you can set to run as administrator to so no issues with UAC

    Thanks for the speedy responses. I am going to try making this myself, but if I can not, then I will ask for more help.

    Thanks again.
