This sounds quite simple in theory but am having no luck.I want the batch file to start tightVNC.exe with the switches /sp and /verysilent, but i also want the batch file to wait for the install to finish using, start /wait if thats possible.

so i would have thought would look something like:

start TightVNC.exe /sp /verysilent /wait

this but obviously doesnt work becasue doesnt recognise /sp as a switch for the start command. help.

try this: start /W "(path)\TightVNC.exe" /sp /verysilent
or start /W "(path)\TightVNC.exe /sp /verysilent"

Is the correct answer, worked it out in the end, but turns out that tightvnc doesnt actually need to be installed. is just a case of copying a .exe and a .dll to a folder on the workstation and running "(path)\TightVNC.exe -install" to setup the service.

Thanks anyway
