VBS Scripts


Recommended Posts


I don't have all the software.

If you post the window title and the needed value of each window or button to be pressed, i will try to write a script.

The better way is to make screenshots of the windows, who needs user interaction and send a PM.

Disable Mouse and Keyboard while running a script:

Download AutoITX

You need only the ActiveX Control version ~78kb (at the end of the page)

Dim WSHShell, AutoIt
Set WSHShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
'Register the dll
WSHShell.Run "regsrv32 /s \YourPath\AutoItx.dll"
Set AutoIt = WScript.CreateObject("AutoItX.Control")
AutoIt.BlockInput "on"
'Do things

does anyone know how to silent install these programs in order to attach them to my unattended XP CD?

ACDSee 6 PowerPack (without MSI)

Acrobat writer pro 6?

Quicktime Player 6.1

they all need some information to be entered during setup, I've asked DAVEXP & he told me to go to this thread and look for VBS Script that will do the job.

any help?

Unlike Acrobat Reader prior to version 6, this new release does not use InstallShield's PackageForTheWeb. Instead, it uses something called the "Netopsystems FEAD optimizer", whose command-line switches are documented nowhere.

However, Adobe provides silent installation instructions in their knowledgebase articles 53446 and 53495. Viewing these requires registering for an account with the "Adobe Solutions Network"; how annoying. Briefly, the magic invocation is:

AdbeRdr60_enu_full.exe -p"-s /v\"/qn\""

Alternatively, you can get hold of the MSI file with a quick hack. If you start the installer and wait for it to finish extracting files, you will find it creates a folder named %SystemRoot%\cache\Adobe Reader 6.0\BIGENU. (SystemRoot is normally C:\WINNT or C:\WINDOWS.)

This folder contains the complete uncompressed tree, including an MSI file named Adobe Reader 6.0.msi. So just copy the BIGENU folder to, say, Z:\packages\AdobeReader60, and you can perform unattended installations like any other MSI package:

msiexec /qb /i "z:\packages\AdobeReader60\Adobe Reader 6.0.msi"

I know this is for Reader 6, but lets try it for the writer sorry

Let me know

Sorry I took so long to get back to you, Westi. But when I tried installing Webshots for the first time, I got errors like crazy. Then when you sent the correction I was like, "YES!!"

The whole thing took about 10 seconds to install. I haven't tried Spysweeper yet, though. I'll send you a PM when I do. I am so indebted to you.

hey does anyone know how to use two send keys in one

what I mean :

{SHIFT} & {TAB} at the same time ? how do we do this?

i've failed my previous attempts!

Sendkeys "+{TAB}"


Sendkeys "+"


Sendkeys "^"


Sendkeys "%"


Sendkeys "+(ec)"


Sendkeys "+ec"

-SHIFT E and normal c

If you need the normal value, insert it in {}:

"{+}" is +

All special keys:


{DOWN},{UP},{END},{ENTER} or ~,{ESC},{HELP},{HOME},{INSERT} or {INS}


{F1}..... {F16}

CTRL/ALT/DEL and special window keys not implemented !

Check for the right drive and name, Version 2 :

Dim fso, objDrive, s, InstCD
Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
For Each objDrive In fso.Drives
If objDrive.IsReady Then
If objDrive.DriveType = 4 And objDrive.VolumeName = "xxx-Your CD name-xxx" Then s = objDrive.DriveLetter & ":\"
End If
'Write it to all keys in the registry
WshShell.RegWrite "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment\CDROM",s ,"REG_SZ"
WshShell.RegWrite "HKCU\Environment\CDROM", s, "REG_SZ"
WshShell.RegWrite "HKU\.Default\Environment\CDROM", s, "REG_SZ"
'Get the value in another script
InstCD = WshShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings("%CDROM%")


My first version fails if a drive isn't ready :)
