Hi guys.
I have searched a lot for some script which will make possibility to auto install software.
A good example is when you try to download msn messenger and there starts autoinstaller online.

Can somebody please tellme how can i make something like this?
Or where can i find this script?

Sorry for my bad english and thanks for any answer.

There's an interface, or generator, or something, called InstallShield, which does what you ask.

What do you mean by "work online?" Download the required files from a remote server?

Hi Twey !
I am looking to have an online installer like msn messenger.
ex. if user clikc at the link, it will not bee prompted to save the file in hes harddrive but the download will start automaticaly and he will see one progress bar.
Also an good example is if you try to download flash player.
There will start an progress bar which will show you downloading progress and after downloading automatically opens the installer.

Thanks very much for your time.
Again Sorry for my bad English

The reason it can run without the "Save As" box is that a) it uses ActiveX and b) it's signed by Microsoft, a signature all Windows platforms trust implicitly. It would be difficult/impossible for you to achieve the same, I should think.

What you are talking about is pro stuff. If you PAY, you can do it, but it's sold... like what Twey said... the "microsoft signature" is something a company can pay for (or is given if microsoft likes them).

I'd suggest JUST letting them download a file, then run to install.

If you force an install (or come close) it will worry people as a virus. Flash is trustworthy, but people don't know if you are. They would worry about something installing itself. Security also tries to stop this for the same reason.
