Reply to: Install XMetaL 5.5 Essential with silent modeDecember 7, 2009 at 8:19 pm
Perhaps you could incorporate a script similar to the following into your setup routines?
var version = “”
var xmetalPath = “C:\Program Files\XMetaL 5.5\Author\xmetal55.exe”;
fso = new ActiveXObject(“Scripting.FileSystemObject”);
version = fso.GetFileVersion();
fso = null;[/code]
This would need to be rewritten in the language of your setup scripts (if not JScript as above) of course.
You should be able to extract the path to xmetal.
However, as you are doing your installations silently that should not be necessary as you already know where it is being installed (usually the only way that path would differ is with a manual installation where someone overrode the default install path).
