Scripting multiple app installs into a single procedure

This question is answered

I am trying to install multiple applications in one procedure. Only the first app installs, everything after that will not install.

Here is an example of what the script is doing:

copy install files to local machine

install MS Office (setup.exe with answer file)

delay for 7 minutes

install MS Project (setup.exe with answer file)

delay for 7 minutes

install BluBeam Revu (msi installer)

delay for 7 minutes

The only thing that sucessully installs is the first office installation. If I run the others by themselves, they will install.

    I think that 7 minutes is not long enough of a delay. In my experience with windows, if one installer is still running the others will not.

  • I think you could wrap a little logic around it. Create a procedure that checks if the install is finished. If it is, continue, if not schedule itself to run again in 5 min.

  • You were correct. I spaced it out to 10 minutes and it works. Thanks.
