Hi! First of all, please excuse me for my english, I will try to be understandable ^^'

Well, I'm trying to create a batch file that install some programs freeing me by install one by one

I woud that this batch install my programs silently (and i know that i have to insert "/S" after the line) and one by one (install the first then, only when the first's installation has completed, installa the second and so on)

Can someone help me?

Thank you anticipally^^

p.s. more, if it is possible, i like if the cmd can show the progression bar of the installation

Something like this is a framework but not all executables support the /s silent switch - you will have to see which ones support a silent install.

Code:
@echo off
start "" /w "c:\install folder\executable 1.exe"
start "" /w "c:\install folder\executable 2.exe"
start "" /w "c:\install folder\executable 3.exe"
start "" /w "c:\install folder\executable 4.exe"
start "" /w "c:\install folder\executable 5.exe"
start "" /w "c:\install folder\executable 6.exe"
echo done
pause

Foxi is correct, it all really depends on the installer type
a good resource is: http://unattended.sourceforge.net/installers.php

It may be a little more work but I personally perfer doing sfx silent installs
with the switches packaged using Winrar or 7-zip. I have found the free app
USSF (http://www.regen.hu/silenttelepito/silentprogi.en.html) works on about 90% of the normal .exe files and will give you the switches automatically for you. Then run from a batch file using the runonce.exe method to install each one automatically for fast installs.

I have been doing successful silent hands free installs for over 10 years now
with windows applications (Adobe, Office, Java, MSE, Wds Updates etc.)
and by no means am an expert but if you would post your programs and how you will you be installing (from disc/usb or hard drive) then I will be glad to
see what I have.

I am currently working on this, but don't expect it to work, it has many internationalization problems.
