    Never mind you can install it silently with /S and /L to prevent it running.


    I can check for this installation via a batch file "IF EXIST" before installing it but how can I get this to run at login without asking the user if they want to run the batch file? Different topic I know, I might post it somewhere else if nobody replies.

    cheers (yup working at the weekend)

    Either of these should do it.

    Picasa.cmd
    Code:
    Set SEE_MASK_NOZONECHECKS=1
    
    Start "" /Wait /B "X:\Picasa36-setup.exe" /S /L
    
    Set SEE_MASK_NOZONECHECKS=0

    Picasa.vbs
    Code:
    set oShell= CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
    set oEnv = oShell.Environment("PROCESS")
    oEnv("SEE_MASK_NOZONECHECKS") = 1
    
    oShell.Run "X:\Picasa36-setup.exe /S /L", 0, True
    
    oEnv.Remove("SEE_MASK_NOZONECHECKS")

    As a matter of interest, what are you planning to use it for? Last time I checked, Picasa didn't work well on shared image stores - instead of modifiying images when you apply a filter, crop, etc, Picasa stores the change data in a separate file in the same folder as the original image. Having multiple users use the same shared folder causes confusion - you might want to check Picasa is doing what you expect before you get a class to use it.

    I don't know to be honest, we have a curriculum team who use it throughout primary schools. I just need install it.
