    VBS message boxes.

    Rookie

      Hello,

       

      I am pushing out a VB script to do an install, the script should popup a message box telling the user to close the old version of the application before the new one installs.

      After trying a WSH and Batch (using a batch file to call the VBS) package neither of them give me the popup? Can it be done? If so what am I missing?

       

      Thanks

          AndrewJones,

           

          If you are on 9.6+ you should look at creating a custom Distribution and Patch setting that contains:

          This will then use the defined "User message" as a popup prior to installing your software.

           

          So you can put your message there - instead of using a vbscript popup.

           

          You then in your scheduled task select the Agent Setting to be used - which would be the one you created that includes the above.

           

          Hope this helps,

          Peter
