    Game Maker 8 Lite - silent install?

    Hello, all..

    Does anyone have any insight on how to get Game Maker 8 installed silently?

    I'm not bothered if it's a repackaged MSI or the correct command line - anything is greatly appreciated.

    I contacted YoYo, and they said they've never had an MSI for any version of GM. Tch!

    Regards,
    Gerard

    Have PM'd gerardsweeney (the other day), but as of yet no reply.

    Does anyone have a Network MSI for Game Maker 8 Lite, I've looked everywhere but found nothing!

    Want to get this deployed on the network.

    No MSI

    Hi, there..

    Sorry for the delay - I've been off for the last few days and then we've been WWW-less for most of today courtesy of a fault at our provider's end (apparently).

    I got a reply from GameMaker's folks saying that there has never been an MSI for any version of GameMaker from them. They suggested contacting RM or Pearson (I think it was).

    For what it's worth, I believe I have GM8Lite working by doing the following:

    * Install it on a PC
    * Copy %ProgramFiles%\Game Maker 8 to a share

    Then deploy it by creating %ProgramFiles%\Game Maker 8 and copying down the above

    Then create %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Documents\Softwrap\YOYOGAMES80FI NAL

    Finally, use subinacl to give non-admins write access to this folder.

    I use compiled AutoIt scripts as they're neater looking than BATs and less hassle when using UNC. If anyone wants a copy of the (laughable) code, let me know.

    Cheers,
    Gerard
