Hi there,

Firstly, thanks for your ongoing contribution of reliable Glade/GTK+ packages for Windows.

I am writing because I have written an PyGTK application that depends on your installer but now I want to write an installer for my own package, and I want to make my installer deal with the job of installing GTK+ 'silently'. I was hoping not to have to bundle my own copy of GTK along with my application, as that seems rather inefficient.

Is there any way I can run your install in silent mode? Is there any chance you could add a '--silent' or other similar command-line parameter?

Alternatively, perhaps you could upload your installer source-code or script to SF.net so that I could try to work out how to modify your script for my needs.

Cheers,
JP

    Worked out part of the answer: you use the following command line arguments:

    /S /D c:\GTK
    

    This works EXCEPT there is a bug which is that, in this case, a GTK+ menu doesn't appear in the start menu; instead, all the shortcuts are added directly to the top-level of the Start Menu Programs list.
