    Silent Mode - Self-Extracting Executable

    Rookie

       

      Hi,

       

      I have created a self-extracting executable for one of the packages i have made (Very simple package, simply copies a couple of files to C:\WINNT\System32\Macromed\Flash\ to disable auto-updates).

       

      Only problem is, when trying to distribute this in silent mode via LANDesk (even when using the switches suggested when checking /? which were /s /v /qn) it still runs the extracted MSI in normal mode and therefore prompting our users to complete the installation.

       

      I have tried many different approaches to this and i am now starting to think of repackaging it again as an MSI just to simply use /qn instead.

       

      Any help on getting it to work as an exe would be great though.

       

      Thanks.
