Is it possible to use silent mode without iss file?
I would like to make update setup (selfextraction file) without any dialog - it will be automatic update.

You don't have to put any dialogs into your script, or you can enclode then between if ... endif.

That cannot be done directly with the built-in silent mode functionality as it would still require such an ISS file.

The closest thing, would be to use your own unique command line switch and conditionalize all of your code accordingly to prevent any user interaction or any dialogs from displaying.

You could also launch the setup in a minimized fashion, using like START /MIN <Setup.exe>, to reduce the appearance of even the any remaining dialogs (e.g. InstallShield initialization screen).

Hope it helps.
