Yet another install question. Is it possible to run the setup generated from the P&DW in "silent" mode, without requiring user interaction? I'd like to find a clean (& convenient!) way to deploy my app in a network login script, if possible.

I don't think you can with PDW.

It's possible if you modify the source.

The source of the LST file?

No, I meant the source of the project.... I haven't looked, but I assumed it's possible to edit the project so that it doesn't show the forms or prompt the user to overwrite files, etc. Is this incorrect?
No, Orufet, I'm not talking about any forms or prompts in my project; I'm talking about the install prompts generated by the P&DW.
Is there another (preferably free) packaging tool out there that would accomplish the same purpose (i.e. silent install) that I could use in place of the P&DW?

Have you looked at visual studio installer? I can't say it has a
silent install option, but it is more featured than the P&DW.
I'll give it a look, Thinker. Thanks.

I've been looking through the Visual Studio Installer documentation
and I don't see anything that would do a silent install. I guess it
just creates standard .msi files.
