Hello, 

So we have an Inno Setup installer provided by one of our vendors which we would like to deploy silently.

The command and parameters we're using are:

InstallerName.exe /SP- /LOG="c:\temp\ZCC.log" /LOADINF="\\ServerName\FileShare\multicam2.inf" /SILENT /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES

The inf file is named multicam2.inf contains the following:

[Setup]
DirExistsWarning=no
DisableStartupPrompt=yes
Lang=en
Dir=C:\Program Files\Zund Systemtechnik\Zund Cut Center
Group=Zund Cut Center
NoIcons=0
SetupType=custom
Components=compcore,compeditor
Tasks=

The installer logs show this error (Note this an upgrade of an existing program:


2024-05-16 09:34:10.323   Aborted: Another ProgramName is already installed in the folder:
                          C:\Program Files\Program Name
                         
                          Please uninstall it first or select the folder with the installed release.
                          Otherwise, the previous release won't work anymore.
                         
                          Do you want to continue anyway?
2024-05-16 09:34:10.323   Failed to proceed to next wizard page; aborting.
2024-05-16 09:34:10.323   Got EAbort exception.
2024-05-16 09:34:10.323   Deinitializing Setup.
2024-05-16 09:34:10.339   Log closed.

Based on the Log, it isn't letting me bypass the folder because it already exists. Any further suggestions

Thank you,

Jon

This error is not a standard Inno Setup dialog, but something custom written in [Code], so the only one that can help you here is the setup's vendor.
