I am writing a batch file to try automate the install of Autocad Mechanical 2011 then subsiqently the VBA enabler. In the batch file I need to delay the vba install until the acad install has finished. I want to know which is the last process in the language pack install that I can check in batch file before proceeding to the next step by using a goto loop. Cheers, Guy

Please use the /W switch as documented here.

 

/W will make the calling program to wait till the installation is complete to move on to the next one.

 

Please note, if the scripted installation doesn't update GUIDs properly VBA installer might not find the right target application.

So please follow one of the method in the documentation.

Thanks Hashim, 

 

That worked perfectly.  Is there a document listing the controls for the installers?

 

Appreciate your help.
