    Hi to all.

    I have Visual Studio Team System 2008 Team Suite DVD and Visual Studio 2008 SP1 ISO image with me. I came to know that, due to some reasons slipstreaming of VS 2008 and VS 2008 SP1 is difficult. So, i would like to automate the installation of Visual Studio 2008 and VS 2008 SP1 at same time. For this i need to write a batch file. I would like to have that batch file. Please any one if possible, just post here the batch file accroding to below mentioned specifications.

    To automate the installation of VS 2008 and VS 2008 SP1, i need to put VS 2008 installation setup files and VS 2008 SP1 in same DVD. But this is not possible due to their size. These two products setup files reach above 4.7 GB limit. So to overcome this, i need to copy contents of SP1 ISO to a folder named VS2008SP1 and later, this folder is converted to zip format. this zip file should be in VS 2008 DVD or VS 2008 ISO image.

    1. The installation should start from VS 2008 setup file. After completion of VS 2008 installation The VS 2008 setup file should be closed. Now the VS 2008 SP1 zip file extraction should start and this uncompressed foder should be placed in any of drives which is having sufficinet storage space. Now the installation should start from SP1 setup file. After completion of installtion, the extracted folder should be deleted.

    I tried this with my knowledge, but i failed. Plz any one help me.
