I am back in NZ after traveling around europe for the last 18 months and I have rebuilt my training pc which I am trying to build an automated install of XP with the apps (adobe reader, office, flash player, virus scanner, etc).
I have the apps ready to be installed manually with thir MSI's configured so they are hands free installs but I need a script that will go through and run them one by one.
I have used a script before to build citrix servers but that was around 3 years ago and can't remember what the type of script was.
What I can remember about the script's format is below.
add regentry script.bat
If adobe.flg exists proceed to office
if adobe.flg does not exist run d:\adobe.msi -s
Copy flag.flg to c:\flagfiles\adobe.flg
if office.flg exists proceed to viruscan
if office.flg does not exist run d:\office.bat
copy flag.flg to c:\flagfiles\office.flg
del regeentry script.bat
The script would just restart if the pc/server was rebooted as it is run from the HKLM\microsoft\windows\currentversion\run until it was deleted at the end of the script and the administrator account is set to login automatically until a registry change at the end of the script.
Kix scripting comes to mind but I can't be certin if that is correct as I could not find how to make the flag files
Any help would be appreciated
