Clicking on buttons in msiExec windows

Mar 4, 2009 at 9:23 PM
Hi.
I have an installer based on wix3, and a Next Button that's just waiting to be clicked on the first wizard screen.
I am able to get a handle to the app and the window of the button, but button.click() or even sending keyboard input won't do anything.

Is there something special that needs to happen with installer windows?
I'm trying to test the dialogs of my installer in an automated fasion.

Thanks,

I have never used wix but I have used MSI with white.
One difference here is that msi launches a new process for every window. Hence getting a application in the begining and then finding the window in it approach doesn't work.
For every window I had to find the application and then the window.
