Silent install with response file terminating early

I have a custom dialog in my InstallScript project and I added code to handle silent installs. I can create a response file fine, but when I try to run in silent mode using the response file, the install stops early. The log file makes it to the line "Lang=0009" and then stops. If the next line should mimic the response file, this means the line referring to the Dialog Order ([{f713B2Af-...}-DlgOrder]) would be next, but it's not getting written. Any ideas?

Thanks!

The problem was that SilentReadData was checking if "Result = 1" but that line didn't exist. Not sure how this line is supposed to get written from a custom dialog, but I hard coded it in and the silent install runs fine now.

In addition to the dialog box content values you write to the .iss file, you also need to add the Result (and value) [the value of the Next or Back button that the user clicked] to the SilentWriteData and SilentReadData calls to make your custom dialog box code fully "silent install aware".
