Vim Silent Install Issue

Devashish Kar
Hi Team

With the latest version of Vim, I can see a pop-up coming at the end of install asking if we want to see the README file (snapshot attached). Being an admin, my job is to install it silently (using "gvim81.exe /S") in a Win10 machine but this box is not being suppressed, can you help me do that?

Thanks!

Hi All, been a long time but got no response on this. Can somebody suggest me if there's any possibility to suppress the box during the end of install?

Sorry for the late response.
This is a well known issue and there are some PR for this.
E.g. https://github.com/vim/vim/pull/751

Moreover, there are many TODO items in the todo.txt:
  Improve the installer for MS-Windows.  There are a few alternatives:
  - Add silent install option. (Shane Lee, #751)
  - Installer from Cream (Steve Hall).
  - Modern UI 2.0 for the Nsis installer. (Guopeng Wen)
      https://github.com/gpwen/vim-installer-mui2
  -  make it possible to do a silent install, see
      http://nsis.sourceforge.net/Docs/Chapter4.html#4.12
      Version from Guopeng Wen does this.
  - MSI installer: https://github.com/petrkle/vim-msi/
  - The one on Issue 279.
  Problem: they all work slightly different (e.g. don't install vimrun.exe).
  How to test that it works well for all Vim users?

Unfortunately there are no progress.

Regards,
Ken Takata
