VB6 Deployment and Packaging Wizard's resulting setup.exe has a command
line switch that allows for a silent install. This feature is virtually
undocumented except in the source code for Setup1.exe. The default path for
the project file of Setup1 is:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VB98\Wizards\PDWizard\Setup1\Setup1.vbp
To do a silent install, the following syntax is required:
The filename that follows the /s parameter must include the full path name.
setup.exe /s c:\anylogfilename.log
The silent install is only interupted (that I could see) when the install
encounters the "Setup is attempting to copy a file that is older than the
one currently..." dialog. This interruption doesn't occur if the setup contains the latest versions of the files being installed.
