Automate vendor installs

Gary Zelmanovics
Can Wix be used to automate a vendor-supplied install?

 

The install is interactive - values are entered and buttons are clicked.

In my favor, all responses are the same for all users.

 

I want the Wix install to automate all responses, requiring no interaction.

 

Thanks,

Gary

Re: Automate vendor installs

Christopher Painter
Is the install an MSI or an EXE?  ( Or an EXE inside a self extracting EXE? )
 
The term you are most likely for is "repackaging"  and it's not something WiX is really geared for.  You'd want something more like InstallShield ( or InstallShield AdminStudio ) with it's Repackager program.
 
If this is a one time need for you, I could look at it on a contract basis.
