I have recently replaced my RunOnceEx installs with an Xplode instance launched by RunOnceEx.

(As per suggestion in documentation and method 4) HERE

My problem is that I cannot get my explode script to hide the RunOnceEx dialog.

Where in my script do I place the


and do I enter the Window title or text contained in the window?

This is a (somewhat clumsy) workaround for anyone wanting to do this in the latest releases:

Attached is a compiled AutoIt script that hides a window titled "Finalising" so if you title your RunOnceEx as such, it will be hidden. That is;

SET KEY=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx

REG ADD %KEY% /V TITLE /D "Finalising" /f

REG ADD %KEY%\001 /VE /D "Preparing Installation..." /f
REG ADD %KEY%\001 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\Install\XPlode\XPlode.exe /xml:"#XPLODE#\XPlode2.xml" /f

If you then start this exe as the first on your list in XPlode . . . .

I'll probably be adding <pre-execute> and <post-execute> containers in the next release - ones that get run before and after spawning the display plugin.

So <hidewindow> can be put beforehand, and <showwindow> after. Obviously it will be able to be used for cleanup too.
