How to create a recovery point
CreateInstall does not have a special command to create a restore point during the installation process. You can use the .vbs script for this purpose.
'Unattended System Restore Point 'sysrestorepoint.vbs 'c Doug Knox - rev 02/11/2002 'Downloaded from www.dougknox.com 'Extracted from original code by Bill James - www.billsway.com Set sr = getobject("winmgmts:\\.\root\default:Systemrestore") msg = "Restore Point has been created" 'Put a ' in front of the next five lines to disable the Success Failed Prompt.

End If 'Remove the ' from the next 3 lines to only alert you if the process failed 'If (sr.createrestorepoint("Automatic Restore Point", 0, 100)) <> 0 Then ' MsgBox "Restore Point creation Failed!"

Create a .vbs file and copy the code there. Include this file in your installation.
