Old InstallShield Installer doesn't start until the cusor moves

jp flag

I am preparing an automatic deployment of Windows using Microsoft Deployment Toolkit and Lite Touch Installation, one of the softwares being installed is from the early 2000s and uses InstallShield, last modified 1997, it's called Mapx5.0.

It seems to have an unattended installation mode where it will install without anyone clicking Next etc. but once called by the Lite Touch Installation it won't actually do anything until the cursor is moved slightly, after which it continues as normal.

Unsure what to do with this, if anyone has any experience working with InstallShield 5 and might be able to provide a solution, or has any idea how I might trigger the cursor move automatically, I'd love to her it.

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
