     Semi-automate a series of application installations with the Setup Wizard! I built this project because I am constantly setting up virtual machines and beta releases and have to install applications for testing purposes. This program would be most useful if you were burning a CD or DVD. Once you click the "Install" button, the process begins and the Setup Wizard minimizes to the system tray. It is possible to cancel or exit the process from the context menu of the icon. But any installations in progress will have to complete first. The programs runs the installs using the BackgroundWorker component so that the tray icon context menu remains responsive and you have control over the install. Any comments or bug reports will be appreciated. I hope someone, besides myself, will find this useful. (This revision modifies the code to conform with current Microsoft guidelines.)

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
