    Re: Passing value to scripts

    Doug,

    Let us assume, you have the following in your script. The %MYVAR% variable is set to 0 and if you execute the script the Message Box displays 0.

    Set Variable %MYVAR% to 0
    Message Box "%MYVAR%" -- "Test"

    But if you start your executable with the following command line, it will display "cool" instead of "0".

    yourinstallername.exe /V MYVAR cool

    The above sets %MYVAR% to cool (please do not add the %-sign around the variable name).

    Does this help?

    Passing value to scripts

    I was told you can pass a value to a script and then use this value in a variable. Can I see an example snippet of code that demonstrates the commands used for doing this.

    I think it is the #def command, but I'm not sure where to place it exactly, and an example script would go a long way in understanding this.

    Thanks.
