    We have an EMR system that is fat client only, i'm trying to push out the install via group policy with a logoff script. This is the script i'm using <filename> /SILENT /LOADINF="filename" /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES /NORESTART /SP-

    The install works great until the very end when it tries to load the Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) 2.6, a new message window pops up that i'm unable to suppress. My scripting skills are very basic, I can't figure out how to get the installer to proceed with accepting/installing MDAC automatically. The INF file I created by running /SAVEINF="filename" does not contain data for this message box.

    Anyone have any ideas? I know the answer is probably simple, my googlefu is failing me.

    The problem is the MDAC install is being executed by the EMR install and doesn't provide you a way to pass parameters to the MDAC install.

    Do you have any idea if MDAC is already installed on the PC, will it bypass the MDAC installer? If so put an MDAC install in front of this install.

    You may have to resort to using a re-packaging app like Symantecs Admin Studio

    or Orca http://thirdlineit.blogspot.com/2011/12/msi-repackaging-and-microsofts-orca.html
