how do you install an application, and once it completes installs a second application - new to scripting RRS feed

  • Question

  • Morning, 

    I am new to scripting and my office has requested that 2 pieces of software (Mcafee antivirus and globalprotect vpn) be installed as part of our imaging process.  I have started the first portion but I do not know how to start the installer for the second program after the first program finishes.  also, how would I make a small box saying "installing...Mcafee/Global protect?

    here is an example of the code I'm using to try installing: 

    Function installMcafeeGlobalProtect

    Option Explicit

    dim commandLine, WshShell

    set wshshell = wscript.createobject("wscript.shell")
    wshshell.currentdirectory = "C:\temp\framepkg.exe""

       commandLine = "C:\temp\framepkg.exe"

       Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
       Call WshShell.Run (commandLine,8,false)
       set WshShell=Nothing

    Look into using the "shell" popup object for messages.
