    Hi All
    May have been a previous discussion but Ive had no luck finding a solution.
    I am looking for a software to use to install programs/software (ie adobe flash,reader, ccleaner,avg,powerdvd ect) after doing a clean install. I have tried "almeza multiset" and just cant get it to go all the way through without user input. WPI is ok but again without all the diferent switches you need user input.
    Just tring to same time @ work. Any sugestions would be appriciated.

    thanks

    If you run into any app that has no method to run silent, use AutoHotKey script maker to select options and go through the Setup for that app. It will make a script you could run after opening the setup and would click what you did in the script.
